Did you originally install nvidia-driver-390 in Driver Manager and then install nvidia-headless-390 in Synaptic Package Manager?
It would have been a long time ago that I installed 390, so at this stage I cannot say with any certainty that I did or didn't do as you say. Maybe I did, but I can't think why I would have installed the headless package.

I appreciate that this doesn't contribute to the thread but I didn't want to ignore your question.

As D Canard said, many thanks for your input on resolving these issues.

I notice that in this mornings updates there is a new nVidia 390.116 driver (in addition to AMD/ATI GPU drivers).

Does anyone know if the nVidia driver update addresses the problems discussed in this thread? I would assume that it does.

Cheers.

I've been having to boot from the earlier kernel (5.0) due to this issue and after installing that new update my graphics card doesn't work on 5.3 OR 5.0.

I havn't tested with extensive GPU computation yet, but as far as I am concerned, and contrary to VanillaCallOption, this Nvidia update in the update manager solved this issue indeed. After installing the update, I re-installed kernel 5.0.3-26 (that I had removed from update manager) using update manager, and now everything looks all fine (i.e., Nvidia drivers works again, I can launch games that had too low FPS with the 5.0.3 kernel, etc.).
Hopefully that will be the same for you *fingercrossed*

I ended up following roblm's advice and installing 390.129 via PPA and everything appears to be solid now. The resolution's fixed and I'm not having to revert to the earlier kernel whenever I boot.

Yes, that update fixes nvidia-driver-390 in package 390.116-0ubuntu.18.04.1, so the 5.3 kernel will now install without any problem.

I just tested a new Mint installation and a newer patched version of nvidia-driver-390 was available in Driver Manager, which was 390.116-0ubuntu0.18.04.3. After installing this driver, the 5.3 kernel installed without a problem. Here is the Changelog:
Changelog
Version: 390.116-0ubuntu0.18.04.3 2020-01-27 14:06:24 UTC

* debian/dkms_nvidia/patches/buildfix_kernel_5.3.patch,

- Fix build failure with Linux 5.3 (LP: #1851162).

Ahh ... my power .... the edit button ..... my precious, my precious! :evil:

I was thinking more in terms of finding a consensus that the problem was momentary and has been addressed by developers, which, I think, seems to be the case.

But, hey ... what is power if you don't use it? I will succumb to its temptations. :twisted:
