Hi I’m having trouble installing drivers on Ubuntu 20.04.
Laptop specs: NVIDIA RTX 3050 for laptops and integrated graphics from Intel.
The essence of the problem is that after installing any version of the drivers visible through the command (ubuntu-drivers list), the system does not see them (the screenshot shows that it is installed, but the system does not see it even after a reboot). That is, not in “Settings” - “About the system” (it says Mesa Intel® Xe Graphics (TGL GT2)), not in the console (the nvidia-smi command gives the following: NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.)
The following steps have been taken:
sudo bash -c “echo blacklist nouveau > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf”
sudo bash -c “echo options nouveau modeset=0 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf”
sudo update-initramfs -u
Replaced system core with HWE as suggested here How to properly configure NVIDIA driver in Ubuntu 18? - #10 by generix.
(sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-20.04
The newest version of linux-generic-hwe-20.04 (126.96.36.199.40~20.04.20) is already installed.)
lspci -v | grep VGA
0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 9a49 (rev 01) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 25a2 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
DeviceName: Second VGA
Thanks for the help.
