I am new to using Ubuntu Desktop and I am trying out Cinnamon for the first time, but every time I connect to my desktop, I am getting a warning stating that I should check my video drivers because I am running without hardware acceleration.

My GPU is a Nvidia 2080 Ti using nvidia-driver-520-open drivers. My CPU is a Ryzen 5600 with no integrated graphics. I am using xrdp to connect to this system remotely over my LAN. The computer has a monitor plugged in, but I intend to use it headless most of the time.

I tried all of the solutions I could find to troubleshoot this problem, but haven't had any luck. My packages and kernel are all reporting as up to date.

I tried adding the following to /etc/modules and UEFI is disabled:

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

    This irritates me: OpenGL: renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 13.0.1 256 bits).. What does glxinfo | grep "OpenGL renderer" say?

Your nvidia driver ist not working:

    Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 1.21.1.3 
    compositor: gnome-shell driver: X:
    loaded: nouveau unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,vesa gpu: nvidia`. Try to switch 

So you might need a XorgConf (assuming you are running XServer and not wayland) like this:

Section "Device"
  Identifier "nvidia"
  Driver "nvidia"
  BusID "PCI:07:00.0"
EndSection
