I see that many others have reported similar problems on the forum, but none of the suggested solutions worked. I’m running Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS. The drivers have been recently installed with ‘sudo apt install nvidia-driver-460’, though the problem existed even before. Running nvidia-smi gives the error in the title, while
ferdy@palmiro:~$ sudo nvidia-settings ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system (nvidia-settings:6155): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 17:43:06.619: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed ** Message: 17:43:06.623: PRIME: No offloading required. Abort ** Message: 17:43:06.623: PRIME: is it supported? no
and prime select confirms nvidia has already been selected as a profile
ferdy@palmiro:~$ sudo prime-select nvidia Info: the nvidia profile is already set
Here’s the output of my
ferdy@palmiro:~$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 3e98
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GV104 [GeForce GTX 1180] (rev a1)
I’m also attaching the error log. Notice that secure boot is disabled.
There is no file /lib/modprobe.d/nvidia-blacklist.conf, and there never was, however I found that /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf had a line
blacklist nvidiafb. I commented the line and ran sudo update-initramfs -u, but even after reboot the problem persists.
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
