I’m still kind of new to Ubuntu(only been using it for a couple months) and just noticed today that my graphics card isn’t being used when I play a game. I’ve done some Google research and tried some commands that I was told would show both my Intel and my NVIDIA card. When I used the command only the Intel one showed. I updated to the latest driver.
One error that sticks out to me is when I run the command “nvidia-settings”, the GUI opens up but back on the terminal I get:
GPU at BusId 0x1 doesn’t have a supported video decoder
** Message: 14:28:11.984: PRIME: Requires offloading
** Message: 14:28:11.984: PRIME: is it supported? yes
ERROR: Unable to open file ‘/home/tyler/.nvidia-settings-rc’ for writing.
I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to do to get it to work. I apologize if this has been answered somewhere and please let me know if I need to fix wording or provide any more info.
