Hello, Im a user of Manjaro since May of this year. I use a dual boot with Windows on my laptop, that has a Geforce 750M from 2013 or so.
Recently, some horizontal lines started appearing on my monitor. As they also do on Windows, I thought that this was likely a hardware issue, but decided to try Nvidia’s driver on Manjaro anyway.
I ran the following command:
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-450xx
which I found on Manjaro’s wiki, but I am not allowed to link the page here.
and proceeded to reboot as the page instructs me to.
However, I am now unable to load Manjaro’s GUI properly, as I get only this message on the upper left corner:
[FAILED] Failed to start Simple Desktop Display Manager
I’d just like to return to a normal loading and do not need to keep Nvidia’s driver. How could I do this?
Geforce 750M from 2013
Here is where the support stops for that GPU
So, you will have to probably use
if your laptop has hybrid GPUs
if is not a hybrid GPUs laptop.
So, from TTY remove the driver you installed, and install the good one.
I have the exact same issue i.e. booting fails with:
[FAILED] Failed to start Simple Desktop Display Manager.
This is with an ATI Graphics card (AMD Radeon™ RX 5500 XT), running on an ASUS mobo (i5-8500, 16Gb RAM) same error message as above. I had to install openSUSE to get everything to work, but would prefer to use manjaro if possible.
What information do you need from me to be able to investigate, please?
Welcome to Manjaro!
this and create a new topic and provide this information as your issue uses completely different hardware compared to OP.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
