Install GEFORCE RTX 4060 driver

I purchased an MSI GEFORCE RTX 4060.

I select the model, operating system “Linux aarch64” and download a “.run” file.
And now?
How do I install the proprietary driver?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Select the proprietary/non-free (Nvidia) graphics driver when installing Manjaro. More info can be found here:

I have already installed Manjaro, reinstalling it is an immense effort.
However AUR is enabled, if you are referring to that.

Then just install the right driver as described in the wiki entry.

sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300 

should do the task. This has nothing to do with AUR, just use the repo of Manjaro.

Is it ok?

Please read the wiki already linked and gain an understanding of how drivers are managed in manjaro.
(Helpful Hint: As with all software in manjaro - dont go searching random websites to download things like you might have done in windoze)

With this:

 $ sudo mhwd -a pci free 0300
 > Skipping already installed config 'video-linux' for device: 0000:01:00.0 (****:****:****) Display controller nVidia Corporation

From: Configure Graphics Cards - Manjaro

Is it all ok?? :slight_smile:

Does your screen lag?

If you want to use the open source driver, yes.
But with a GPU that new (4060), I would use the proprietary driver (non-free) instead of the free driver.

But maybe you are, we don’t know…

What is the output of inxi -G

People literally spoon feed you the commands because you don’t want to read the articles they link to you, and then you do the opposite of what they told you to do and ask if it is OK.

Are the proprietary drivers set up correctly?

$    sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300
>    Skipping already installed config 'video-nvidia' for device: 0000:01:00.0 (0300:10de:****) Display controller nVidia Corporation

Give the output of that command.

You should not have video-linux installed if you only have a Nvidia card (your previous posts show that you have it installed). If you only have a Nvidia card I would remove video-linux configuration to only keep the installed video-nvidia configuration active with the command sudo mhwd -r pci video-linux but first give the output of the inxi command above.

inxi -G

  Device-1: NVIDIA AD107 [GeForce RTX 4060] driver: nvidia v: 535.113.01
  Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 21.1.8 with: Xwayland v: 23.2.1 driver: X:

From this output, all seems OK.

You can now install nvidia-settings to have the driver configuration panel available.

sudo pacman -Syu nvidia-settings

and you can make sure to remove the unneeded video-linux configuration (which are the open source video drivers basically, you don’t want that for new generation card).

sudo mhwd -r pci video-linux
