Re: [SOLVED] Nvidia drivers not loading (Mint 20 - Ryzen 7 4800 - GTX 1660 Ti)

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...

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

Initially when I looked over the intallation log for the Nvidia driver, I was just checking for the Nvidia kernel modules being built. Looking again at that log and I noticed these 3 additional lines at the end. Normally the log will end at the second line below: Processing triggers for initramfs-to...

Re: Reconfigure NVIDIA and Intel drivers after update

1. Just to make everything clear, after you updated the Nvidia driver, you did not reboot right away but also updated the kernel and then rebooted. 2. After using the prime-select command from the previous post, the Nvidia GPU is now selected. After rebooting, check if Nvidia is still the output of ...

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

Is there a way from command line that I can force selection of the Nouveau drivers without having to purge the nvidia drivers each boot? Yes you can. Use this command in tty1 or Recovery Mode to rename the nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf file, which blacklists the nouveau driver, by adding xxx to the ...

Re: Problem with Brightness control - Lenovo ideapad s400

Check the info in this topic but ignore the first two posts:
viewtopic.php?f=59&t=325860

You may have to boot in UEFI mode for the brightness to work. Use this command to check: ls /sys/firmware

You should see efi listed in the output.

Re: Reconfigure NVIDIA and Intel drivers after update

This is the list of installed ones and 4.15.0.112.100 is only present as `linux-image-generic`, while next to `linux-image-4.15.0-112-generic ` there is `4.15.0-112.113` On my laptop’s test partition, I duplicated your steps and got that same result. I’ve always thought that the naming and listing ...

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

The log shows that the Nvidia kernel modules were built. Can you get to desktop now after restarting?

If not, then post the output of these commands:

Code: Select all

ls /etc/X11
ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
mokutil --sb-state

Re: Reconfigure NVIDIA and Intel drivers after update

Use this command to open the 10-nvidia.conf file: xed admin:///usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia.conf

Check if this line is listed: Option "PrimaryGPU" "Yes"

If not, then add it to the bottom, just above EndSection. Log out and back in.

It appears that the Nvidia kernel modules were not built during the Nvdiia driver installation. Use this command to remove the Nvidia driver: sudo apt-get purge *nvidia* After rebooting, use this command to re-install the Nvidia driver: apt install nvidia-driver-440 Copy the installation log that is...

Re: Graphics not working after installing nvidia drivers

The command apt purge *nvidia* should have worked in Mint 19.3. This topic got off to a bad start because you did not post any info about your system and what driver you tried installing. At the minimum, use the command inxi -Fxz . It appears from looking at the log that you have an Optimus laptop. ...

Re: Graphics not working after installing nvidia drivers

I tried "apt purge *nvidia*" as suggested on some other questions. But that didn't fixed the issue. I don’t know why but the developers have made changes. That command no longer works in Mint 20, as it did in previous versions. Assuming you installed the Nvidia-440 driver, use the commands apt remo...

Re: Switching from Nvidia to AMD GPU

Your laptop is running without hardware acceleration of the graphics. It’s surprising because the launch date of the Ryzen 5 3550H CPU was the first quarter of 2019, so Linux support should be good. I suggest upgrading the kernel for better support. You can install Ukuu to make the kernel installati...

The Nvidia kernel modules were built for the new kernel. Post the output of this command: ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ Use this command to upload the Xorg.0.log file to terminal.com pastebin: cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | nc termbin.com 9999 Post the URL address that displays in the Terminal window.

That's referring to the Intel Wi-FI chip.

Did the recent updates also update the kernel?

Re: Reconfigure NVIDIA and Intel drivers after update

What is the output of this command: prime-select query

If it is nvidia, then use this command to remove the blacklist-nvidia.conf file:
sudo rm /lib/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf

Then update the initial remdisk and reboot: sudo update-initramfs -u; reboot

You must have made an error in editing the grub file.

Re: Laptop not detecting external monitor

Check Keyboard settings. The Fn key may not be assigned to screen brightness.

Use this command and post the output:

Code: Select all
