Hey guys! I am pretty new to manjaro in general but used Linux for a few years now (not as a power user, though)
Due to problems with multi monitor support on manjaro Cinnamon, I wanted to switch to KDE so i decided to reinstall manjaro KDE (erasing the disc and installing new)
- Problem: Installation
The installation sadly never finished. Manjaro KDE got stuck at 95% (with “misc post configuration” or so. sadly i dont remember the full text now) on 2 seperate tries. Simply force rebooting the system worked to get into Manjaro and update the system with
sudo pacman -Syyu
But i do not know if something was lost or broken because of this.
- Problem: Second Monitor
My second Monitor is a 4k one. If i connect it to my Machine, its recognized and even has some windows start over there. Problem is that the monitor itself stays black with the “no signal” message. changing the primary Monitor does not help and i am forced to currently disconnect it to even reliably work on my desktop
- Problem: Nvidia drivers and MHWD
the MHWD script seems to be broken.
when i tried to install it through the system settings i get the following error message:
Waiting for user input... Starting > Installing video-nvidia-450xx... Sourcing /etc/mhwd-x86_64.conf Has lib32 support: true Sourcing /var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/nvidia-450xx/MHWDCONFIG Processing classid: 0300 Sourcing /var/lib/mhwd/scripts/include/0300 Processing classid: 0302 : Synchronizing package databases... warning: nvidia-450xx-utils-450.66-1 is up to date -- skipping error: target not found: linux56-nvidia-450xx core is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date multilib is up to date Error: pacman failed! Error: script failed! Done ...
I tried to install the driver directly through
pacman -S nvidia
and choosing the 450 driver, but i do not know if this actually worked, as the system settings still show the free driver as installed.
can you guys please help me? this is my main working machine and i can not even get tstzarted moving my files here if i cant even get the graphics card or monitors to function properly. I am afraid this will cost me my weekend.
