I have installed Nvidia (Geforce 940MX) Graphics driver version 384.111 from Softwares & Updates > Additional Drivers.

When I open "Nvidia X Server settings" it shows empty. I have tried

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

and reinstall drive manually still facing the same issue. I have tried to switch drivers and reboot the computer.

also, I switched to "Ubuntu xOrg" and reinstall the driver but no luck showing the same result like below image.

  • after the purge, do a apt install gtkorphan, run gtkorphan as root and click on all orphaned packages, then click ok and keep doing that until the list is empty. Reboot and do: sudo updatedb && locate nvidia, edit your question and provide the output to the last command. also a ppa-list would be welcome. Then drop me a message @Fabby

  • @doug it show "the nvidia profile already set". May 9 '18 at 23:21

I had the same problem. i solved by disabling secure boot in my BIOS settings. And then the option was available.

  • you mean to say UEFI it's already been disabled. May 9 '18 at 23:24
