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

I don't remember ever seeing the "$vt_handoff" parameter before. Should I add it to all of my attempts or not? No. It's not important. It's a Ubuntu only virtual terminal parameter and not used in Mint 20. Try using nomodeset with the Nvidia driver. A small number of users have reported that they n...

Re: Another noob with NVIDIA problems on LM 20.

Use this command to check if nvidia-prime is installed: apt policy nvidia-prime If not, install it: apt install nvidia-prime Then switch to the Nvidia GPU and reboot: sudo prime-select nvidia If that doesn’t help, then use these commands and post the output: lspci -nnk | grep -EA3 "3D|VGA" ls /lib/m...

Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

I would prefer to have this setting at the login screen already. Open the File Manager. Create a document in Home (/home/your-user-name) named .login and add the xrandr command. Right click on the file and select Properties > Permissions . Mark the checkbox next to Allow executing file as program ....

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

The output shows you installed the Nvidia-450 driver but it looks OK. You could have left the 440 driver and used this command to install CUDA Toolkit version 10.1 from the repos: apt install nvidia-cuda-toolkit . If you need the newest version, CUDA Toolkit 11.0 , then go here, but this is a 2.3 GB...

Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

That xrandr command has an error which I have corrected in my last post. HDMI1 should be HDMI-1 . 1) Really a major issue: After restarting the pc, the transform settings are reset, obviously. I have to run this command again (after every restart of the pc). How to set these transform setting perman...

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

Would you post the output of inxi -SGx to check if everything looks OK. I’m still not sure what the purpose of the new nvidia-driver-440-server series is for. On this web page, the info says: These releases provide both bug fixes and new features , and I’m assuming it can only be for the Nvidia-440....

Were the changes you made in your first post removed or still existing? If they were removed, then redo them. This is the correct line to use: xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0

Use this command to remove that driver: sudo apt-get purge *nvidia*
After rebooting, select the Nvidia-440.100 driver in Driver Manager.

Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

In the TV's on-screen display (OSD) menu there should be a setting to turn off overscan . It can be called “Just Scan”, “Screen fit”, "1:1" mode, "true pixel", Full Pixel, Dot by Dot, “native mode”, 16:9 image scan, UNDERSCAN for 720p, or something else. On my HDTV, in Settings > Picture > Aspect Ra...

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

Both of those log files were of no help. The Xorg.0.log was not the one where you got the black screen and the journalctl didn’t list nvidia in it at all. I want to try another method that should determine for good if your card can be used in Mint 20. I suggest installing the Nvidia driver while run...

that .conf file was not there. (More accurately, we previously renamed it to .confxxx.... That was the /lib/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf file. You need to reverse that change, if you have not already done so, otherwise it will prevent the Nvidia driver from loading. sudo mv /lib/modprobe...

Use the command ls /lib/modprobe.d/ and check if there is a file named blacklist-nvidia.conf If yes, remove it and install the Nvidia driver: sudo rm /lib/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf If not, install the Nvidia driver.

I've wondered if there's a way to send a warning, as when I'm turning off the system and got something running, in case I've missed to save anything important before rebooting I can’t think of anything at this moment that can be easily added to the script but there could be. When you manually selec...
