I recently bought a new laptop with integrated AMD graphics and a dedicated Nvidia GTX 1050 card. However, after installing Kubuntu 19:10 on it I’ve been having a lot of problems. It seems the computer doesn’t want to load the driver for some reason, and the nvidia-settings command gives an empty window and the following message in the console:
(nvidia-settings:3354): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 19:16:57.648: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed ** Message: 19:16:57.651: PRIME: No offloading required. Abort ** Message: 19:16:57.651: PRIME: is it supported? no
I have been trying to make it work but I just can’t; I’ve purged and reinstalled the drivers several times to no avail, even the operating system itself. It just does not want to work; I believe the computer doesnt load the drivers. I disabled secure boot on BIOS, as I read somewhere, but it still won’t work. It only uses the integrated graphics, while ignoring the dedicated card completely. Said card, however, does show up when prompted:

I am using the nvidia 435 drivers, as recommended by ubuntu-drivers devices:
$ dkms status nvidia, 435.21, 5.3.0-18-generic, x86_64: installed nvidia, 435.21, 5.3.0-26-generic, x86_64: installed
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
