Yes, correctly. As I said welcome screen, desktop, etc - all works fine. Only problem on boot - splash screen is corrupted and flickering.richyrich wrote:Is your monitor detected correctly in the Nvidia Settings program ? Is the refesh rate also set correctly ?

With noveau it boots on full resolution, so I tried so switch FullHD on to try to solve this problem. Tried this: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/12 with no luck as well.trytip wrote:in the article above it saying Replace Line: #GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480 but did you REMOVE the HASH or POUND sign? it should be Replace Line: GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768 or whatever resolution, but not really needed to go all the way to 1920x
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
Change the following lines to look like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau video=vesa:off"
Save the file, exit gedit, then open up a terminal and run:
Reboot and see if it works. I have an Nvidia GTX-1060 GPU in my laptop. I am running the Nvidia proprietary driver. I found this fix on a Redhat forum yesterday and made some slight modifications for Ubuntu 16.04/Linux Mint. It worked on the first try!
No, does not work for me at all: grub become text mode and shows many ???????????? in UI. I'm on openSUSE now and have exactly same problem with plymouth: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug. ... 002875#c45 - seems widely known problem.
I loved OpenSUSE when I used it years ago. Solid RPM based distro with KDE as the default! However, I have grown accustomed to the ease of use, along with the availability of software, of Debian/Ubuntu based distros.
I too have left Linux Mint, since they decided to give KDE users the middle finger and not make a KDE specific version anymore (even though the Mint team somehow found the time to create their own desktop ). I'm using KDE Neon User Edition 16.04 (waiting on 18.04 to drop). I'm extremely happy! Getting the latest and greatest from KDE Plasma on a regular basis without all of the MATE/Cinnamon specific BS cluttering up my computer. Saw your post when I was googling the issue earlier and figured I would help since I was able to fix the problem shortly afterwards.
Good luck! Hope someone is able to answer your question. I will post the original site where I got the information (was on a Red Hat/Fedora forum). Maybe that might help?

If you are not using efi, you may need to set your GRUB_VIDEO_BACKEND to "vbe". Take a look at this:
https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/ ... a-guide/2/
Make sure you have vbe installed and the module running.
Also, if you are using efi and "efi_gop" is not working, try "efi_uga".
We are just shooting in the dark right now...
