(SOLVED) 'No proprietary drivers are in use'? Is this a bug?

Post by Jous » Mon Sep 02, 2019 3:07 pm

Hi everyone,

My Nvidia driver 430.40 works well. I checked it and it works fine but the driver manager says 'no proprietary drivers are in use'.
I deleted everything that has to do with Nvidia, rebooted, installed the driver and rebooted and still the same 'no proprietary drivers are in use'.
Blender 2.8 and Davinci Resolve and they works fine. So no problem with the driver.

Is this a bug?

Update:
Linux Mint 19.2 Tina x86_64
CPU: Intel i7-4770K (8) @ 3.900GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

Thank you very much. I love terminal.

Do you think Mint team will fix the Driver Manager?

I just discovered your blog. I love it already.

I mark my thread (SOLVED)

Probably not, it's mostly just a frontend for Ubuntu's driver tool, anyway. Does this return any output?

That's the equivalent of what Driver Manager does.

If the above produces any output, also run this please and post the terminal output:

Ok, cool, definitely a bug in Driver Manager then. Last one, if you don't mind:

Code: Select all

python3 -c "from UbuntuDrivers import detect;print(detect.system_device_drivers())"

How can I report it? The system reports is only for crash reports as I understand.

Excellent, thank you very much. You can report it here: https://github.com/linuxmint/mintdrivers/issues.

I'll also fix it on my PPA in a few minutes.

By the way, I just removed the ppa graphics driver ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa and rebooted the system and I choose the nvidia-driver-430 (recommended) and rebooted again and now it's showing '1 proprietary driver is in use'.

I think it has been solved.

Interesting. On my PPA I fixed one bug affecting the driver status indication but I'm not sure that was actually the one you were experiencing. Based on that it may be you simply hadn't rebooted yet to make the driver active?

Hi sorry for the late reaction.

When you mentioned your PPA I didn't understand it but with some research I found the back story of it. So I added your PPA and make an update and I got an update en rebooted the system. Still same 'No proprietary...'. I removed your PPA and also removed Graphics PPA and rebooted. I saw nvidia-driver-430 (recommended). This was not in the list before and only recommended driver was 390 and it still was 'no propriety...'. After I selected 430 and rebooted it worked. Maybe your PPA update fixed this?
There is a new nvidia driver 435 in that PPA. I'll try later to add the PPA again and see what happens.

Oh, I didn't mean to imply you should be using my PPA. As to whether it fixed it, I don't know, you said you removed my PPA before it started working, but did you also restore the official package versions? Because otherwise you're still using my versions, but you won't be getting updates for them anymore. Not ideal. ;)

First of all I'm sorry about your story and it's still amazing what you are doing. Respect!

I don't know how to restore the official packages so I just used the timeshift to go back in time. Removed the graphics ppa and now it's same the same status indicator. The driver works fine.

Anyway, thank you for your help bro.
