Hello, I have a laptop with a nvidia graphics card (GeForce 920m). I installed manjaro. After installing, there was an application called
NVIDIA X Server Settings. Clicked on it, it said I had to load the GPU by entering
nvidia xconfig as root. Did that and gave a reboot. Now everything is zoomed in. But when I reopen the NVIDIA X Server settings app, it still says the same.
Did some searches and found that for bumblebee, I have to enter
optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8
This command first gave an output that said add ignoreABI… to config file…
Did that, but now running optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8
Says no device detected. How do I fix this or revert it to normal… my timeshift backup didn’t help either.
This applications saves the xorg config file at
/etc/X11/xorg.conf by default. Maybe also check this directory:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ You need to rename the suffix or remove it.
Deleting them doesn’t do anything.
Well you need to reboot, or just restart the display manager to reload the config:
sudo systemctl restart display-manager.service
If I remember correctly the changes made using Nvidia Settings need to be saved to the file nvidia.conf in /etc/X11/mhwd.d/
Did reboots several times…doesn’t fix it
Then the problem is not the created xorg file by
NVIDIA X Server Settings However… if possible, switch to a prime setup, instead of bbswitch (it is more or less obsolete on modern drivers).
I guess you have installed:
As I see 920M should be still supported by 470xx: Appendix A. Supported NVIDIA GPU Products
So try to switch to this driver:
