I am currently using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.Since the latest Nvidia Driver update 396. I have had trouble opening the GUI of Nvidia server X settings so that I could switch between my prime profiles.
So, I would like to know how to install a particular older version of Nvidia (like version 384).
I first did:-
- sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
- sudo apt-get install nvidia-384 ( Hoping it installs nvidia server X version 384 ( this version used to work correctly for me. ) )
After Installation when I try to know the version by doing
It gives output :
nvidia-settings: version 396.24 (buildd@lcy01-amd64-016) Wed May 2 23:28:38 UTC 2018 The NVIDIA X Server Settings tool.
Also when I try to use
sudo prime-select nvidia
and then do
glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer"
It gives output:
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 155 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 35
Current serial number in output stream: 36
I would like to know how to install a previous version of nvidia driver (server X settings) that also install an old version of nvidia-settings or a remedy for the current version of nvidia driver that fixes the GUI and prime profile selection menu.
