Cinnamon crashes due to new driver

Postby Leloup » Sun Nov 05, 2017 6:40 am

Bonjour,

Cinnamon crashes with the last 64 bit driver 384 for NVIDIA graphic card.
I did:

# apt-get purge nvidia.
# apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg
# apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
# killall Xorg

This is the same...

Do you have a little bit idea?

Regards,

Le loup

First check Secure Boot is disabled in your bios settings.

Purge nvidia packages:

Code: Select all

apt purge $(apt search ~invidia- -F %p | grep -v applet)


Update initrd:

Code: Select all

sudo update-initramfs -u


Reboot then install Nvidia driver from Driver Manager. Reboot when done.

Bonjour Laurent,

Thank you for your proposal.
In fact, I badly taped the command lines. Then, I correctly taped them and that works. Cinnamon came back. Ouf!

Regards,

Leloup

Laurent,

I have a question for you. You are a specialist. How to check the Xorg release? and How to upgrade it?

Regards,

Leloup

See command output :

Code: Select all

inxi -Gx


LM 18.2 supports xorg 1.18.4, do you have any problem with this release ?

michaou-VirtualBox ~ # inxi -Gx
Graphics: Card: InnoTek Systemberatung VirtualBox Graphics Adapter
bus-ID: 00:02.0
Display Server: X.org 1.18.4 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev) FAILED: vboxvideo
tty size: 80x24 Advanced Data: N/A for root

My issue is about driver. I tried the tuto of mpat https://forum-francophone-linuxmint.fr/viewtopic.php?p=28995#p28995
I tried with 384, 367, 340 release of driver....Cinnamon crashed each time.

I get also a warning in Terminal : No support for locale: fr_FR.utf8. I don't know if that is in relation with my driver issue.

Nvidia GPU can't work in a virtual machine.

Bonjour,

Comments with the pictures.
1. Before driver re-installation, desk was:
Bureau Cinnamon2.jpeg

2. After driver re-installation,
When I say Cinnamon crashes I mean that I get a message and a new desk.
The message is
Cinnamon vient de planter.png

Question in the message is: Do you want restart Cinnamon? I click NO.
The new desk is:
Nouveau Bureau2.jpeg

Why not keep this new desk? How to do to suppress the error message "Cinnamon vient de planter"?

Just a tip: You don't need to type the commands that someone gives you. You can copy and paste a command into Terminal.

There is an easy way to copy. See where this is above the command?
CODE: SELECT ALL

Click on SELECT ALL and it will select the command(s). You then can right-click on the selected command and click copy (or just use the keyboard with Ctrl+C)

Then paste the command into Terminal.

That way you can't make a mistake.
Don't forget to edit your original post and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the Subject line if your problem has been fixed.
My main language is English. I speak very little Portuguese, and a whole lot of gibberish.

1. Temperature tests before driver re-installation:

chanson avec Cinnamon2.jpeg

Temperature meets more of 80°C and the fan speed is more than 2600 rpm

2. Temperature tests after driver re-installation:

ChauffeMoins2.jpeg

In the same conditions, temperature meets only 65°C and the fan speed is less than 2200 rpm
The CPU activities is reduced. Why? While the GPU activities seems the same around 9% in both cases.
So, why not keep this new desk? I don't know its name. Can I suppress the error message?

Idea?

Leloup

You are running LM in a virtual machine, correct ? You are trying to install Nvidia driver in a virtual machine, this can't work. Remove Nvidia drver and use default VB driver

Thank you Laurent for your messages.

You are right. However, from my tests, you can see a clear improvement about temperature. PC does not heat. Desktop is different but I don't see any more modification. Applications are working. Question I have If Cinnamon crashed what is this new desktop? Is this still Cinnamon? It is a new picture with ices. Beautifully aspect. Isn't? Why not keep my desk in this state?
