Nvidia X Server Setting can't to open

Hello, everyone. I have a trouble with my Nvidia driver. I use nvidia-prime, but it cann’t open from launcher. I tried to launch from terminal, run command nvidia-smi, inxi -G and mhwd -li

What should I do to solve this problem? Thanks for your reply

When you want to use the nvidia under prime you must use prime-run

glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'
prime-run glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'
prime-run inxi -G
prime-run nvidia-smi

Command prime-run not found, Bro

Are … are you sure?
Your output above shows you have prime profile installed.
/usr/bin/prime-run is provided by package nvidia-prime.

Please show the actual command/output.

That value on my terminal :

That wasnt one of the suggestions … try the ones from my previous post and/or read the link.

As this, Bro?

So … as you can see there … when you put prime-run in front the nvidia is loaded.


prime-run nvidia-settings

Value from that command

Or, right, nvidia is funny.
But as per the wiki…

sudo prime-run nvidia-settings -c :8 

Value that command

Please stop posting screenshots.
They waste space, are less legible, and less searchable.

Anyhoo… are you using wayland ?

Please forgive me, Brother. I have a traumatic experience with Nvidia.
For Wayland, I activate it. But I not in wayland session

Then that is unexpected behavior…

Please make sure you are up to date:

sudo pacman-mirrors -g && sudo pacman -Syyu

And then … Maybe try with a different nvidia, like the 470 series?

sudo mhwd -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-470xx-prime

Ok, I will try it.
If I have a trouble again, I add a comment again
