no nvidia drivers shown

Post by rajat_naegi »

When i run below code:

Code: Select all

  inxi -G
output is:

Code: Select all

Graphics:  Device-1: Intel HD Graphics 620 driver: i915 v: kernel 
           Device-2: NVIDIA driver: N/A 
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.8 driver: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa resolution: 1366x768~60Hz 
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 620 (Kaby Lake GT2) v: 4.5 Mesa 19.2.8
I have a Nvidia 940MX. My fan speed is more in comparison to when I run windows on same machine. I think maybe this driver thing is causing some issues

Below code gives:

Code: Select all

 dpkg -l | grep nvidia
output:

Code: Select all
