From Mint manual:
[i]If your graphics card is from NVIDIA, once in Linux Mint, perform the following steps to install the NVIDIA drivers:
Run the Driver Manager
Choose the NVIDIA drivers and wait for them to be installed
Reboot the computer[/i]
Uninstall NVIDIA drivers first.
Great, it works! Thanks for your suggestion.
Now also in chrome://gpu everything appears as accelerated except for the following, that I guess it’s a Linux limitation, am I correct?
Video Decode: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
Video Encode: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
Accelerated video decode is unavailable on Linux: 137247
Disabled Features: accelerated_video_decode
Accelerated video encode is unavailable on Linux
Disabled Features: accelerated_video_encode
Install libva-vdpau-driver for hardware dec/enc accel.
