Vulkaninfo ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED on Ubuntu 18.04 with Nvidia GT 630M and Nvidia 390 driver


I successfully installed nvidia drivers 390 on my laptop.
I want to ensure my laptop can use vulkan so I try vulkaninfo and get:
/build/vulkan-tools-136mCR/vulkan-tools- failed with ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

How to make vulkan work on my laptop?

Your GT630M is Fermi based, no Vulkan supported. Sorry, gpu too old.

Ok so bad
Laptop is still very good with SSD 8GB RAM, no lag
But GPU is too old so I can’t do anything because I can’t replace the internal GPU :(
