Re: Mint 20 cant install nvidia on hybrid laptop.

@robert

Disabled secure boot and everything jumped into life. The widget is visible and working. It reports Nvidia (performance mode) is active. System info reports the intel card but I dont think that is active, just present.

Thanks :D

Re: Mint 20 cant install nvidia on hybrid laptop.

Hi robin
Thanks for the headsup! Worked myself into a corner and had to reinstall Mint 20. Back to zero so have to establish Nvidia as my card. Great info on the prime applet. Will dive in now.

Re: Mint 20 cant install nvidia on hybrid laptop.

Thanks SMG
Hmmmm searched for prime 1.2.,1 but dont know my way around linux yet, so could only find 1.2.2. I found a post saying:

Code: Select all

sudo prime-select intel
works, but might as well stay with the driver manager for now.

Thanks again for your help.
