I have the same error during boot if I have the Intel GPU selected as active from Nvidia Settings.
Selecting the Nvidia GPU and doing log-off, log-on again, the service runs:

Code: Select all

~ $ sudo systemctl status nvidia-persistenced.service
[sudo] password di samuele:

I have to re-check what happens during boot.

Start your own damn thread. Hijackers are annoying.

Sorry? But who's hijacking what... Seriously?
It's really surprising to have an answer like this from an a user with your status...
Please re-read my answer. I had the same problem and I fixed it switching GPU card. It was an ANSWER to the OP's question.

Q: "What to do when NVIDIA demon fail to start?" -> A: "switch card, probably you had the Intel GPU active"

Probably I should have phrased my post better, but... oh c'mon. Is this the Linux Mint forum or a lice of vipers?...

Dentex, your answer wasn't very clear, it looked a bit like another question. Maybe Hoser Rob misunderstood.

Hoser Rob, be civil, plz. This isn't the first time that we need to warn you. This forum is meant for "help, knowledge, and fellowship"... you're doing okay on the first two, but the last bit really needs some work.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

I admitted it, you're right.

You nailed it. Thanks.

I have to re-check what happens during boot.


And anyway, going back to the topic, I came again over here to report that during boot, with the Nvidia card set as "active" into Nvidia settings, there's no error message.
