Asus PG32UQX monitor - GSync Issues under Linux (with workaround)

Most of the time, under Linux the Asus PG32UQX monitor isn’t detected as GSync capable. This is most likely a driver bug.

Fortunately, there is a work around:

  1. Open nvidia-settings
  2. Go to “X Server Display Configuration”.
  3. Click on the “Advanced” button.
  4. Check “Allow G-SYNC on monitor not validated as G-SYNC Compatible”
  5. Click on apply.

I don’t think there’s a way to apply this setting via the CLI, but I’d be happy to be wrong about that. :)

Hopefully that helps someone… Hopefully this gets fixed soon.
