NVDIA 430.09 Not taking Header file for Linux

I have GTX 1650 and I am using Manjaro 64 bit and Kernel 58, but when i try to install Driver 430.09 with this command:

sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.09.run --kernel-source-path /usr/include/linux/
ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/include/linux//include/linux/kernel.h' does
       not exist.  The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source
       path '/usr/include/linux/' is incorrect.

and if I use:

sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.09.run --kernel-source-path /usr/

ERROR: The kernel source path '/usr/' is invalid.  Please make sure you have
       installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are
       properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you
       have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed.  If you know
       the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the
       kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option

How could I use /usr/include/linux/ as kernel-source-path.
Try 1: I have also used 455.28 for installation and same problem arises.

God dammit. Wiki Article for setting up your graphics card

Linux is NOT windows. You should NEVER download software directly from a website, always stick to the AUR/Official Repos until you know what you are doing.

Doing this in GUI is easier, I don’t know why the wiki doesn’t list this.

OK you beat me to it, really frustrating all these threads lol.

Can’t wait for new ISOs to ship which make it easier to install NVIDIA drivers from the ISO directly.

I have used pacman before for installing drivers but my screen flickers,
please look into this:

~ >>> sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300

Oh boy…

You need to remove the conflicting drivers, then install the desired drivers.

I wonder if you even read the WIKI page linked as I only see my click (1) on the link :sweat_smile:

Also I would recommend to use the GUI made for that purpose, in Manjaro Settings → Hadware, you only need to click and you’re good. Right click driver, uninstall, right click driver, install.

Oh… I thought I made a mistake in my code and it was conflicting with itself… Yea of course, you can’t have 450 and 455 installed at the same time…

Try Right clicking on the link and clicking Open link in new tab, the number will not change…


sudo mhwd -r pci video-hybrid-amd-nvidia-450xx-prime
sudo mhwd -i pci video-hybrid-amd-nvidia-455xx-prime
systemctl reboot

Check if all is FINE:


@FadeMind @omano @TotallyNotElite Thanks
I used this:

sudo mhwd -r pci video-hybrid-amd-nvidia-450xx-prime

then Reboot

sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300

> Successfully installed video-hybrid-amd-nvidia-455xx-prime

Screen Does not flicker now
