[SOLVED] Linux Mint 17.1 does not show 2nd graphic card

Post by specialdune » Sat Mar 28, 2015 12:09 pm

Hi all,

I have some troubles with my new Acer Aspire VN7-571G-574H.
There is next to the integrated Intel HD Graphics a secondary NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M.
But however, Linux does not show this card with "inxi -xG"

I installed bumblebee and bumblebee-nvidia (with all dependencies like nvidia-current) to hope to get this work via "optirun" because I tried many other things and nothing worked because of my hybrid notebook.
But optirun shows "[ 1896.230633] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver"

EDIT: SOLUTION

First deinstall everything which was related to bumblebee and nvidia (sudo apt-get remove --purge bumblebee* nvidia*) [Reboot]
If you have graphical bugs reinstall default Graphic drivers (This is for intel integrated graphic cards!)

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri libdrm-intel1 xserver-xorg-video-intel xserver-xorg-core
Then follow this instructions: Install NVIDIA hybrid

See if it shows up when using this command in the Terminal:

Code: Select all

lspci | grep controller

With a hybrid graphics system, I think NVIDIA has to selected in the Nvidia Settings utility under PRIME Profiles before it shows up in inxi -Gx.

So nvidia-detector says "none", and nvidia-settings is not installed yet and also prime is not. Shall I install them without the nvidia driver install script? Because this causes my system to run in fallback mode which I do not want to have a 3rd time. Installed mint twice already :D

No. I forgot you had installed Bumblebee. What instructions did you use?

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee#Installation

(But I did not enable those repos, instead I added repository ppa:bumblebee/stable)

This one after many other instructions failed (because I did not read the "does not work for hybrid cards" disclaimer ... :roll: )

I also tried this one out now but nothing changed: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2043971

You need to edit the “bumblebee.conf” file with the correct Nvidia driver information. Use the instructions by user Donnylink in this post:

My prob is that my driver manager does not show any prop. driver so the list is empty.
And when I install the driver from nvidia page via run script inxi -xG shows me a driver "nivida" installed for the intel card and the nvidia card is still not displayed. This results in a xorg crash. :|

I've found that there is nvidia-304 installed on my system (guess by the bumblebee installation.
So i changed the nvidia driver section in the config file from nvidia-current to nvidia-304 but still same error message (after reboot).

Currently installed:


bumblebee
bumblebee-nvidia
primus
nvidia-current (nvidia-304)
nvidia-prime
nvidia-settings


nvidia-settings says on starup:

Code: Select all

** Message: PRIME: is it supported? no

I'm a little confused. You first stated there was no proprietary Nvidia driver in Driver Manager and then you said the nvidia-304 driver is listed.

You can't install a driver downloaded from Nvidia's website if you have a hybrid graphics system. There may be a way but it involves modifiying the installation.
What instructions did you use to try to install that driver and how did you try to remove it?

The driver nvidia-current (nvidia-304) was automatically installed by installing "bumblebee-nvidia" which I said I installed. It was not listed, I just saw it on my system under /usr/lib.
I'm thinking of trying this one: http://askubuntu.com/a/458229
But I'm a little scared because I do not want to rainbows up my system a 3rd time.

Or maybe this one: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ ... ?p=3567903
Sounds quite good and my card is listed (Geforce GTX 850M)

As far as I know, nvidia-prime is automatically installed in Mint 17.1 on Optimus enabled laptops. Open Synaptic and search for nvidia-prime.

You didn't answer the question about how the downloaded Nvidia driver was installed and how did you try removing it, or was it removed?

Now I am a bit confused :D
The "downloaded" nvidia driver was installed via "sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia". It automatically forced me to install suggestions like nvidia-current (which might not be the correct one for me because its a legacy driver version 304, quite old). And I did not try to remove it. But if I try, I'll do it via synaptic I guess.

Here is where the confusion comes from. This is what you said in a previous post:
And when I install the driver from nvidia page via run script

To me that refers to a driver downloaded from Nvidia's website, instead of using the distribution's package manager. For example:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-331.67.run

Can you post the contents of the Xorg.0.log file. Use this command to open the file:

Code: Select all

gedit /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Press Ctrl+A to select the entire file contents. Right click on the screen and select “Copy”. Don't save it to a file. Open the Mint Forum reply window and select “Code” in the menu. Paste the
copied lines between the two code words. If you have problems posting that long file, then upload it to pastebin.com by using this command:

Code: Select all

pastebin /var/log/Xorg.0.log

This was when I tried it before I reinstalled Linux Mint so it does not matter anymore.
But yeah I tried the last link I posted and now my system is like rainbows up again :twisted:
The uninstall tips there did not fix everything. I have no fallback mode, but I have some display issues (icon of mintupdate is only some red/blue/green pixels) and my terminal is not showing (It is transparent). Also the files on my desktop are not showing (but show symbols on desktop is selected - and reselect did not help). :roll:
Any way to fix this back? Then I guess I will stop trying to get nvidia card working in my laptop :cry:

The uninstall tips there did not fix everything.
I assume that you used the instructions in this first link you posted to remove Bumblebee?:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/457446/u ... 229#458229

The second link you posted has instructions on installing the xorg-edgers PPA, which I was going to recommend next. As you said, the nvidia-304 driver is an old one, and it does not support
the GeForce GTX 850M card. To get newer drivers, use these commands in the Terminal to add the xorg-edgers PPA to your software sources:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
Then open Driver Manager and look for the nvidia-346 driver to install.

The driver manager is still empty, when I install it with sudo apt-get install nvidia-346 nvidia-settings my cinnamon is crashing. And now, after removing the packages and do sudo apt-get --reinstall install libgl1-mesa-glx
My cinnamon is a bit buggy, terminal does not show gksu does not seem to be working (not showing) and mintupdate tray icon is not showing (buggy red/green/blue pixels)

Under inxi -xG I can see the Mesa thingy is missing. But I installed libgl1-mesa-glx. Maybe I need something else?

You may need to reinstall one or more of these packages:

libgl1-mesa-glx
libgl1-mesa-dri
libdrm-radeon1 (Edited: should be libdrm-intel1)
xserver-xorg-video-radeon (Edited: should be xserver-xorg-video-intel)
xserver-xorg-video-ati (Edited: should be xserver-xorg-video-intel)
xserver-xorg-core

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri libdrm-radeon1 xserver-xorg-video-radeon xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-core
Also check in /etc/bumblebee for an xorg.conf.nvidia file and remove it.

You may need to do a reinstallation. Then check in Synaptic for nvidia-prime. Then add the xorg-edgers PPA and then possibly try installing the nvidia-340 driver,
instead of the 346.

Thanks, but I don't think I have to install *ati or *radeon drivers because I only have Intel HD Graphics (integrated) and NVIDIA (dedicated). But I will try the other ones.

EDIT: For libgl1-mesa-glx it says that it can not reinstall it because it can not be downloaded. :?: (Same message appears when I try to reinstall libdrm-intel1)
The other ones were reinstalled but still I have the same issues.

EDIT 2: Solved the issue by doing sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Now I'll try to install nvidia-prime, nvidia-settings and nvidia-340

EDIT 3: I think it might work now.

But the inxi -xG output is a bit strange for me:

Code: Select all

Graphics:  Card: Intel Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics bus-ID: 00:02.0 
           X.Org: 1.15.1 driver: nvidia Resolution: 1920x1080@60.0hz 
           GLX Renderer: GeForce GTX 850M/PCIe/SSE2 GLX Version: 4.4.0 NVIDIA 340.76 Direct Rendering: Yes
How to get it work (should work from scretch)

1. Add xorg-edgers ppa (sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa)
2. Update sources (sudo apt-get update)
3. Upgrade System (sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade)
4. Reboot!
5. Install nvidia-prime and nvidia-settings (sudo apt-get install nvidia-prime nvidia-settings)
6. Reboot! (for safety)
7. Install newest nvidia driver (for me nvidia-340 was the right one)
8. Reboot!

Now your system should have NVIDIA graphics selected in nvidia-settings :D
Big thanks to robim for helping me fixing my system and make my hybrid card avaible!

What you should know about my system:
Integrated Intel HD Graphics
Dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M
Updated Kernel to newest 3.13.x Version

That was a dumb error. :oops: It came from me thinking about another topic I am working on where the system is using AMD Radeon GPUs. I have edited those mistakes.
I'm glad you were able to put everything together to solve your problem, but I don't see why this step was necessary:

3. Upgrade System (sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade)
