Hi. I made (almost) successfully the transition from a Win10 partition to an Ubuntu 19.04 setup on my MacMini i7-3615QM.
The only thing still not working properly is the detection of my GTX 1060 as an eGPU on an “Akitio Thunder2 Box”.
After installing the 430.40 drivers and disabling the Nouveau ones, my system recognizes and utilizes the eGPU randomly. I mean, sometimes at boot time it is using the eGPU GTX1060, but other times not, using the integrated Intel graphics. I do have two monitors, one connected to the Intel output and the other connected to the eGPU graphic-card.
If I type:
$ sudo prime-select nvidia
, I get:
Info: the nvidia profile is already set
I also tried to install the 430.40.run drivers but I get:
ERROR: Unable to load the 'nvidia-drm' kernel module. PKCS#7 signature not signed with a trusted key.
Even so, after restart it is loading the eGPU. After another restart, not loading the eGPU, and so on. When the system is loading the eGPU I can run even the most demanding games from Steam, so the eGPU it’s working (from time to time). I just need to make this setup to permanently recognize the eGPU every time I’m booting on Ubuntu.
I am new with Linux, just started to learn and some help will be appreciated.
P.S. Forgot to mention that at the boot time the computer get a little bit stuck with an error message on the monitor connected to the internal Intel graphic-card with the following error messege:
-No video mode activated.\n -Can't find command hwmatch
After a few seconds I can see image into the monitor connected to the Intel graphic-card output or on the monitor connected to the Nvidia eGPU one. But it is purely random, so I can’t anticipate which one will run.
