I’ve just tried to install Nvidia drivers v.370 on my laptop (Dell XPS 15 9530) by the following steps:
- Remove bumblebee installation with apt-get remove --purge
- Install nvidia-370 (probably from official ubuntu repo)
- From the following link,https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA_Optimus#Display_Managers I did the following steps:
** Added the autostart entry for lightdm from the above link
** Modified xorg.conf to match the recipe for older x servers on the above link, adjusting busid accordingly.
** Added the two lines into /.xinitrc described in the above link
I’ve uploaded the output of the bug report to the following Github gist: https://gist.github.com/Staberinde/3abebb7f6ceb1b5007364c1dea1960d7
I’ve noticed that it does say something about being unable to find the configuration for a second monitor, when I have no external screens connected.
I added an option back into xorg.conf that was previously there, to the screen - nvidia section:
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "CRT"
Unfortunately this doesn’t seem to have had any effect
