I’ve been trying for weeks now to use my Laptop with an MX150 card to run some games in Ubuntu.
But for some reason linux doesn’t want to let me use it!
Things I’ve tried:
- I’ve installed the latest drivers (430)
prime-select nvidia, query shows
nvidiaas selected too.
- I’ve also disabled secure boot from the BIOS.
- I’ve added
nomodesetto the grub config, but this boots to a blinking cursos and black screen until i remove that.
- I just tried installing bumblebee to run stuff, i get this message:
[ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
- I also tried modifying this 10-nvidia.conf file to add “Primary GPU” “true”
WHen i can see the login screen, for some reason I’m forced to login selecting Wayland from the user select screen otherwise it bounces back to the user list.
And I still see in Settings > Details that the system is still using the intel Card. Even thought the nvidia drivers are suggested in the Software app and i have installed the 430 ones.
Also if i run tools like glxgears or glmark2 it uses the intel card instead of the Nvidia card to do the tests :/
I don’t know what else to try to use my graphics card… it seems at this point i will have to go back to Winbugs :(
Any other ideas what to do?
