Nvidia 3D Vision Driver for Linux - faulty syncing/flickering (experiment using Matlab)

I am running an experiment using Psychtoolbox in Matlab on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. Our graphics card is GF106GL Quadro 2000. When running the experiment where we present colourful images rapidly, the glasses start to flicker as if turning on-off and the computer eventually freezes. We’ve tried running the same thing on Windows and we don’t run into this problem. Could it be a driver issue?

If anyone can point us to the proper driver, I would very much appreciate it.

We couldn’t find a 3D driver for Linux so we were able to use a .exe version. We think this might be the problem. I’ve reported to Nvidia customer support and they redirected me here. Any help would be fantastic.

Please run nvidia-bug-report.sh as root and attach the resulting .gz file to your post. Hovering the mouse over an existing post of yours will reveal a paperclip icon.

On Ubuntu, open the Software&Drivers application, then choose the nvidia-390 driver. Or run

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-390

Thanks for the tip! We ran this and it said we already have the driver. For now, we have resorted to using an older version of our experimental software. So far it hasn’t crashed, but the glasses still flicker.
