I have problems with Nvidia drivers, on ubuntu 18.10.
Linux ****-dell 4.18.0-15-generic #16-Ubuntu SMP Thu Feb 7 10:56:39 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
My notebook is using both intel integrated and external GPU. (1060 max Q).
I have dual boot with windows and secure boot disabled. Some time ago I installed nvidia drivers and it worked normally. nvidia-smi was working.
This week I noticed that nvidia drivers weren’t loaded, so I reinstalled them multiple times, with multiple different version: (390.87, 410.78, 415.13). I have tried installing from both command line and “Software & update” app.
Right now I have driver version 390.87.
Things I have tried so far:
- Clean installation of multiple driver versions. Never from run file.
- Blacklisting nouveau in blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf with: blacklist nouveau; options nouveau modeset=0
- Setting WaylandEnable=false
