Re: Nvidia drivers problem

What instructions did you use to install Bumblebee. It’s more difficult to setup in Mint 19. If you want to continue using it, then nvidia-prime should be removed: apt remove nvidia-prime To open Nvidia Settings when using Bumblebee, use this command: optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8 The log fi...

Re: HP ENVY with nvidia and intel gpu's

I followed this article: https://github.com/timrichardson/Prime-Ubuntu-18.04 You didn’t need to use that method; just install the Nvidia driver in Driver Manager. That method was created to allow faster switching of the Intel and Nvidia GPUs. In Mint 18, switching GPUs was fast, about 10 seconds or...

Re: Nvidia drivers problem

After you switch from the Intel to the Nvidia GPU, or the other way, there will be a message to log out and back in; but there appears to be a bug; the NVIDIA Prime applet and Nvidia Settings will show the Nvidia GPU is selected, but an actual change has not occurred. A reboot is still needed. This ...

Re: Laptop External Monitor - Low resolution

Re-installing the nouveau driver was only to be done if the Live DVD showed the nouveau driver was loading. The monitor is not the problem, so getting another won’t help. You can try testing an older version of the 4.4 kernel, which may have better support for your older Nvidia GPU. I would start wi...

Re: Laptop External Monitor - Low resolution

Do you still have your Mint 18.3 MATE installation USB / DVD? If yes, then run a live session and check the output of inxi -G . If the nouveau driver is loading, then restart your system and use this command to re-install the nouveau driver: apt install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau libdrm-...

Re: Laptop External Monitor - Low resolution

I was just going to have you check for that. Use this command to check for a nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf and nvidia-304_hybrid.conf files in /etc/modprobe.d : ls /etc/modprobe.d If they still exist, then use this command to remove them: sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf /etc/modp...

Re: Laptop External Monitor - Low resolution

Repeat the process but test these parameters instead of nomodeset: pci=nomsi noapic noacpi irqpoll If that doesn’t work, then there is probably a compatibility problem with your hardware and the 304 driver. In the past, many users including myself experienced this. There is a newer nvidia-304.137 dr...

That looks OK, but does everything look OK after rebooting or are you seeing the same problem you mentioned in your first post.

Yes, it’s needed to install the nvidia-304 driver. I forgot you had switched from the 4.4 kernel listed in your first post.

Re: Laptop External Monitor - Low resolution

During the Nvidia driver installation, the Nvidia kernel modules are built, but this failed.
Use this command in the Terminal to re-install the Nvidia driver: apt install --reinstall nvidia-304

Copy the installation log that is displayed in the Terminal window and post it.

Post the URL link that displays in the Terminal window.

I was not asking about the nvidia-304.135 driver you just installed in Driver Manager, but the Nvidia driver you mentioned in your first post. This file is in your /etc/X11 folder: xorg.conf.nvidia-xconfig-original You either created an xorg.conf file using the command sudo nvidia-xconfig or the nvi...

Did you previously download and install a driver from Nvidia’s website. If yes, how did you remove it?

Try setting MST (Multi-Stream Transport) to OFF in the monitor’s on-screen menu.

Re: Hybrid graphics - how to tell if it's working

Follow the instructions in this link to get the AMD card working, using PRIME GPU offloading.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PRIME

Then check if the AMD GPU is rendering the graphics by using this command: DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo | grep "OpenGL renderer"

Re: Linux Mint 19 not finding AMD graphics

In Discrete Graphics mode, the integrated Intel Graphics should be disabled completely, but the output of glxinfo | grep "OpenGL renderer" showed Intel Graphics being used. I suggest trying this method. Use this command to create an xorg.conf file: sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf Use this command to o...
