I currently have Ubuntu 18.10 on my Acer Swift 3 and no matter what I do I can't seem to make it recognize my MX150. If I try to install NVIDIA versions for that it says it doesn't exist, any ideas why? I am not sure what I should post but I will when I do.

  • Take a look in the BIOS aka UEFI to see if it's enabled. – spacelander Dec 13 '18 at 19:23
  • @spacelander There is no option on the UEFI for any cards. On the advanced tab there is only "Intel VTX", "Intel VTD" and "SATA Configuration". – Vassilios Dec 13 '18 at 19:25

Have you tried installing nvidia-driver-430 driver from Graphic Drivers PPA? You can then switch between Intel graphic card or MX 150 using Nvidia X Server Settings.

These commands may be helpful:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install nvidia-driver-430 nvidia-settings nvidia-prime

You can then run NVIDIA X Server Settings to switch between Inter or Nvidia graphic cards.

PS: I use Ubuntu 18.04.3 on my Acer Swift 3 with MX 250 (the same model with yours, but with higher graphic card), and I can switch between my MX 250 or Intel graphic card.
