I am using IsaacSim on a workstation environment with Ubuntu18.04.
Currently I need a high-performance mobile workstation (laptop) capable of IsaacSim, so I’m going to buy one.
Recently, I tried to build the same environment on a dell alienware x15 r1 (rtx 3070), but the installation failed due to a graphic drive problem.
I would like to ask if you can recommend a laptop that can run Isaacsim, which is used by nvidia isaacsim developers.
Hi have you tried installing the NVIDIA .run drivers? This page could help you troubleshoot some problems.
I think most Dell laptops have good Linux support but not sure about the Alienware series.
Personally, I am using a Razer Blade 15. New devices and OS maybe have some incompatibilities but some issues may get resolved after awhile or workarounds could be found since Razer has a good Linux community too.
Here’s a list of laptops with NVIDIA GPU: https://store.nvidia.com/en-us/studio/store/?page=1&limit=9&locale=en-us&category=Studio-Laptop
Here’s a list of laptops which are Ubuntu certified: https://ubuntu.com/certified?q=&limit=480&category=Laptop&release=20.04+LTS&release=18.04+LTS
Thank you for your kind reply !
Actually I installed graphic driver(version 470 or 495) for my mobile workstation, dell X15 r1(RTX 3070 laptop), and I can check the result as below.
However, the target program doesn’t work after ‘sudo reboot’
It might the linux kernel cannot recognize my gpu, but I really don’t know how to fix this problem.
I already delete and reinstall ubuntu18.04 many times, and graphic drivers as you comment or other ways.
Is there any way to fix this problem ?
Thank you !
I solved this problem with these additional commands below.
- Connect my laptop to an external monitor
- sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm
- sudo prime-select nvidia
- sudo reboot
thank you !
