I installed Ubuntu 20.10 from live usb on my asus notebook (model: fx505g) on SSD (actually the only drive on my pc) with Nvidia GTX1050Ti. It was very difficult as i encountered several problems, such as:
- grub installer failed on dev/sda (solved with live usb again after install -> boot-repair -> reboot)
- random freezes during install (solved setting acpi=off on boot)
When i finally managed to run OS, random freezes again; so acpi=off again. During installation from USB everything worked fine.
At this point the system is using xserver noveau drivers and graphics are smooth and responsive, but if i try to install any other nvidia property driver, the system run low and there is a ridicolous mouse input latency (with system boot time > 2m). With nvidia driver installed, if i run nvidia-smi i get
"NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running."
I tried to set acpi_osi=Linux from boot menu (even acpi_osi=Windows, just because i don't know what else i can do) and acpi_backlight=vendor: the system communicate fine with the Nvidia driver but the system is incredibly slow and everything crash. Also, no audio detected (only dummy output)
So i went back to xserver noveau drivers: at this point boot speed is quite normal but i can't use trackpad, power maanagement settings, bluethoot devices and audio.
Before going back to acpi=off i also tried with nomodeset which gave me low-res and still ultra-slow system; actually, the only way to get things work is with acpi=off with no trackpad, bluethoot, battery management and fn keyboard functions.
Is there a way to get things work together?
