I’m not too sure what PRIME is, but after installing the nvidia 470 driver using the command
sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver-470 as it was the recommended (proprietary & tested) driver for my GPU (GeForce GTX 1060), I rebooted my PC. Although it successfully switched from the default nouveau open source driver to the newly installed driver, when I use the command
nvidia-setting, I get the following messages before the application opens up:
(nvidia-settings:4788): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 12:29:06.987: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed ** Message: 12:29:07.225: PRIME: No offloading required. Abort ** Message: 12:29:07.225: PRIME: is it supported? no
How do I enable PRIME?
