Re: Mint 19.1 MATE stuck at low resolution on VIA graphics

...does vertical refresh in xorg.conf file above might change that somehow??? I don’t think that will help, but you can try changing the line VertRefresh 56.0 - 76.0 to VertRefresh 56.0 - 60.0 One problem is that the 1280x720 mode is not a standard VESA mode.

Do you mean the image looks stretched excessively vertically? For example, an icon doesn' t look square?

The inxi output lists a 1280x720 resolution is being used now for the laptop's screen, which is a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Re: Mint 19.1 MATE stuck at low resolution on VIA graphics

Install hwinfo to find out if any resolutions with a 16:9 aspect ratio are supported by your GPU using the vesa driver:
apt install hwinfo

Then use this command and post the output: sudo hwinfo --framebuffer

Re: Nvidia Prime Select Intel GLX errors

The gpu-manager.log lists 3 cards but there should only be 2, for the Intel and Nvidia GPUs. So where is BusID "PCI:0@0:2:1" coming from? last cards number = 3 Has intel? yes Has nvidia? yes Vendor/Device Id: 8086:a001 BusID "PCI:0@0:2:0" Vendor/Device Id: 8086:a002 BusID "PCI:0@0:2:1" Vendor/Device...

Re: Nvidia Prime Select Intel GLX errors

Switch with prime-select intel and its back to the same behavior without GLX Did you reboot after doing that? After selecting the Intel GPU and rebooting, what is the output of these commands: xed /var/log/gpu-manager.log ls /etc/modprobe.d sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf

Re: Nvidia Prime Select Intel GLX errors

Install the updates you think are necessary in Update Manager but not the mesa package and then check with inxi -Gx.

Re: Nvidia Prime Select Intel GLX errors

I suggest re-installing Mint. Then create a Timeshift restore point before installing updates or doing anything else. Post the output of inxi -Gx. This won’t guarantee correcting the problem because sometimes what you see in the Live USB session isn’t the same after an actual installation is done.

Re: Nvidia Prime Select Intel GLX errors

Create a Timeshift restore point.
Open Update Manager and install the mesa package from the padoka PPA.

If that doesn’t help, then post the output of this command:
ls /etc/modprobe.d; ls /lib/modprobe.d; ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d

Re: Nvidia Prime Select Intel GLX errors

First, try removing temporarily any plugins, applets, desklets or extensions you added, which depends on if you’re using Cinnamon or Xfce. If that doesn’t help, then I suspect the last mesa update is the source of the 3D rendering problem, not being compatible with the Intel driver. If you created a...

Re: Laptop screen isn't detected

On most laptops, the HDMI port is internally connected to the Nvidia GPU, so it needs to be selected to use that port. When the Nvidia Settings utility is opened, any display connected to the Intel GPU will be named a PRIME display.

Re: Unable to Detect Projector on Linux Mint 19.2

Your system has Secure Boot enabled. This prevents the Nvidia driver from loading. Either disable Secure Boot in the BIOS, or if you want it enabled for an added layer of security, then the Nvidia kernel modules that were built during the Nvidia driver installation will need to be signed.

When you get the black screen after the grub menu, try to enter virtual console tty1 by pressing, Ctrl+Alt+F1 . Use this command to remove the monitors.xml file, if it exists. It...
