Re: Scaling issue on HiDPI

It's the default theme of Cinnamon... The default theme is Linux Mint , which has a dark brown background. So it looks like you’re using Mint-X , not some other downloaded theme. Would you run a live session using the installation USB/DVD to compare the results of using HI-DPI. The menu’s text size...

Re: Nvidia video tearing

For laptops with Nvidia’s Optimus technology, to prevent tearing on the laptop’s screen when the Nvidia GPU is enabled, the kernel parameter nvidia-drm.modeset=1 needs to be used. Use this command to open the grub file: xed admin:///etc/default/grub Change this line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quie...

Re: Dedicated + integrated graphics, hopefully it will work?

With the Nvidia driver installed, open the NVIDIA X Server Settings utility and check if all 3 monitors are visible on the second page. Enable any that are disabled, rearrange them if needed and close the program. Open the Displays program and click the Apply button. Log out and back in to check if ...

Re: failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI 1:0:0

So I assume you already tried installing the nvidia-384 driver in Mint 18.3. Did you test the 4.4 kernel. I’m using 4.4.0-127. The default kernel is 4.10.0-38. With Mint 19, you can add the graphics-drivers PPA with these commands: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt update The...

Re: failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI 1:0:0

Did you try to install the Nvidia driver with the default 4.15.0-20 kernel? When you tried Mint 18.3, the nvidia-340 driver was also probably listed in Driver Manager. Did you try installing it? Try using the nomodeset kernel parameter. At the GRUB boot menu select the correct line but don’t press E...

Re: NVIDIA driver and "suspend session" problem [LM 19]

A simple question: what if, in future, will I update the kernel? Will the new kernel require the deactivation of Nouveau module? You should enable nouveau.ko before installing any new kernel, to test if suspend now works. Be sure to reboot after disabling or enabling nouveau.ko . One thing I would ...

Re: NVIDIA driver and "suspend session" problem [LM 19]

zangetsu, I just want to make sure there is no confusion. With option 4, you can still install the Nvidia driver and switch to the Nvidia GPU whenever there is a need for more graphics processing power, for example, in more graphics intensive games. However, if you want to suspend, then you will nee...

I have only a doubt...let me see if I understood: with the 4rth option, the nouveau kernel module need to be disabled exploiting the rename stuff for all the time that I will use Nvidia driver and it will need to be enabled only when I will chose to come back to nouveau driver. Is it correct?
Yes.

You could test using the Intel driver instead of modesetting.

For the moment I don't really need to use Nvidia GPU so, the 2nd solution could be okay.
