Re: I can't get nVidia optimus running with bumblebee!

Before answering your specific question, I had first wanted to gather enough info from you on what bumblebee related packages were installed on your system but you have posted very little info. I am also assuming that you have installed Mint 19. Prior to Mint 19, after installing a Nvidia driver in ...

Re: I can't get nVidia optimus running with bumblebee!

Would you post all the info I requested. There was a change in how the /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf file is configured, starting with Mint 19/Ubuntu 18.04.

Besides those other two commands, also post the output of this command: apt-cache policy nvidia-prime bumblebee-nvidia primus

Re: mint 19 crashing after installing nvidia drivers

The easiest way is to click on the NVIDIA-Prime applet in the system tray. If it is not present, then right click on the panel and select Add applets to the panel . When the applet is clicked, the NVIDIA X Server Settings utility should open to the PRIME Profiles page. Select the Nvidia or Intel GPU...

Re: mint 19 crashing after installing nvidia drivers

I suggest to try installing nvidia-prime ( sudo apt install nvidia-prime ) and then the nvidia-340 driver again. Without nvidia-prime, you won’t be able to use the Nvidia GPU. However, you should still be able to get to the desktop, or perhaps not with certain hardware. If you can’t get to the deskt...

spoonsacola,

Would you start your own topic. This topic deals with using Bumblebee on a system with hybrid graphics. Use these commands in the Terminal and post the output: inxi -Fxz and dpkg -l |grep -i nvidia

Is the tearing on mostly the laptop’s screen?

matiasl9815 or TehMayoSauce, Try testing these kernel parameters after installing the nvidia-340 driver. The effect will only last for one session. At the Grub boot menu, press E to edit. If no menu shows, then hold down the shift key while starting. Use the Down arrow key to go down to the line tha...

Re: Resize Output Image to Fit HDMI External Monitor

I could not find any info on the internet for the model number you gave. There usually is a setting in the TV's on-screen display menu to turn off overscan mode by changing the input mode, which can be named: Just Scan , Full Pixel , True Pixel , Screen Fit, 1:1 Mode , Native Mode , Dot by Dot , 16:...

Re: mint 19 crashing after installing nvidia drivers

TehMayoSauce , The nvidia-340 driver does support your Nvidia GPU but it is does not work well with the graphics hardware from some vendors. I’m wondering why Driver Manager doesn’t list other newer series drivers, like the nvidia-384 or nvidia-390 , even without adding the graphics-drivers PPA . T...

Did you install nvidia-prime?

Re: Change Kernel driver

I only said there appears to be no PRIME Profiles page because you and one other user with an Optimus system reported it was missing. I will need to see what other users report. Can you switch GPUs using that page and then rebooting? The only command that could have triggered a configuration change ...

Even though Driver Manager shows the Nvidia driver is installed, that does not mean it is being loaded for use in graphics processing. Pjotr was telling you to add a blacklist nouveau line to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to disable the nouveau driver, but that is already being done in the /etc/mod...

Re: Change Kernel driver

Did you open the NVIDIA X Server Settings utility to the PRIME Profiles page to select the Nvidia GPU and then reboot?

Use these commands and post the output:

Code: Select all
