Re: Mint 20 cant install nvidia on hybrid laptop.

On my Optimus laptop, the 1.2.2 version of nvidia-prime-applet works fine. The dependencies for that program are listed here and they should already be installed: nvidia-prime-applet.png User bourretbrandon reports the applet is missing here: https://github.com/linuxmint/nvidia-prime-applet/issues/4...

That prevents the modesetting driver from loading, which is needed to drive the Intel GPU.

Re: AMD RX570 crashes in idling, amdgpu vs Kernel

Just now screwed up my hole system, Tried to purge ppa: oibaf graphics drivers but it would not purge everything. I then did a "inxi -G" and saw the mesa still 20.3 oibaf, so used synaptic package manager and marked all oibaf associated packages with dependencies for total removal... I wish you wou...

Re: Run with NVIDIA GPU doesn't work and screen tearing

The recommended driver is always the highest driver version available for your GPU but not always the best driver to use. I’m not exactly sure what the 418 driver is for. The Synaptic Package Manager says it is a transitional driver for 430, and 430 is transitional for 440. On Nvidia’s website, the ...

Re: AMD RX570 crashes in idling, amdgpu vs Kernel

The only time it stays stable in idling mode was when tested with live session on LinuxFX 10.4 with kernel 5.8.0 and 20.0.8 mesa, but started to crash after update. Did you mean after the initial installation? You can’t test a newer kernel while running a live session. I think you should not need s...

Re: NVidea GeForce GTX 1650 with AMD Ryzen and AMD Radeon

Try to switch GPUs manually. First use this command to check what GPU is doing the graphics rendering: inxi -G If it’s the Nvidia GPU, then use this command to switch to the AMD GPU: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old Then log out and back in or reboot. Use the inxi -G command to chec...

Re: Run with NVIDIA GPU doesn't work and screen tearing

The Nvidia On-Demand feature needs the Nvidia-435 or higher driver series, which don’t support your GPU. For the tearing problem, use this command to open the nvidia-kms.conf file: xed admin:///lib/modprobe.d/nvidia-kms.conf The value of this line should be 1, not 0: options nvidia-kms modeset=1 COR...

Try changing the processor C-states setting, which are idle power saving states that shutdown parts of the processor when the cores are unused.

Re: Disabling a defective touchscreen in a Dell inspiron 7548

I have found the command 'xinput disable "ID" and have ran a few other commands trying to find the touch hardware ID, but identifying the hardware is a bit beyond what I'm familiar with. That will work but instead of using the device ID, use the device name in the xinput command, because the ID can...

Re: Hardware acceleration disabled, keep asking for driver update

Another issue now, the driver manager doesn't show any options and says "No proprietary drivers are in use". That’s from the buggy operation of Driver Manager, which started in Mint 19. If the Nvidia driver is installed and you try to revert back to the nouveau driver using Driver Manger, then afte...

That doesn’t make sense. If there was an xorg.conf file, then it would have been listed in the Xorg.0.log you posted, unless you added that file to a different location than the usual /etc/X11 location.

You are using the nomodeset parameter on the kernel command line. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to enter virtual console tty1. Use this command to open the grub file: sudo nano -t /etc/default/grub Use the Arrow keys to move the cursor. Remove nomodese t from this line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash ...

Re: NVidea GeForce GTX 1650 with AMD Ryzen and AMD Radeon

I don't suppose you know what to put in xorg.conf.old? You don’t need to create a separate xorg.conf.old file. The xorg.conf file is needed to allow switching to the Nvidia GPU for the graphics rendering. When you want to switch back to using the AMD GPU, then the xorg.con f file must be disabled a...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I didn’t see any obvious problem in the two logs, although the Xorg.0.log appeared to be cut off before any important error lines at the end were listed. The xorg.conf file is not needed but it does no harm either. The only other thing I can suggest is to test the 4.15 kernel used in Mint 19.x, whic...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

After installing the Nvidia driver and adding the parameter debug to the kernel command line, you should have seen the boot messages displayed. Did you see any messages when the boot process stopped or was the screen black? Post the contents of the existing xorg.conf file: xed /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Re: Another noob with NVIDIA problems on LM 20.

It appears that the Nvidia kernel modules were not built during the driver installation. Use this command: ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/char/drm/ This should be the output: nvidia-drm.ko nvidia.ko nvidia-modeset.ko nvidia-uvm.ko If you don’t see those 4 modules, then remove the Nvidia d...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

The output from grep nvidia /lib/udev/rules.d/* looks OK. You didn’t test the parameter debug , which will then display the boot messages until the screen freezes. Use this parameter by itself. The only other method left is to try getting the journalctl and Xorg.0.log again. The previous attempt app...

You would post the output of those commands the same way you posted the xorg.conf file. The xorg.conf file is not configured correctly for your system with hybrid (Intel+Nvidia) graphics.
