So I'm having trouble installing and configuring Nvidia drivers.
My specs are:
- Intel Core i5-6200U with Intel HD Graphics 520
- NVIDIA Geforce 940MX
- Not using Wayland
- Using Xorg (due to Wayland not playing nicely with Nvidia cards)
The first thing I did with a fresh install of Ubuntu was open a terminal and typed ubuntu-drivers devices. I then installed the recommended package of nvidia-384. I'm able to switch between graphics card through NVIDIA X Server Settings.
I then installed bumblebee & bumblebee-nvidia since my device is Optimus enabled. Afterwords I then edited /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf to point to nvidia-384 instead of nvidia-current. (Which I read you have to do to get bumblebee working.) (It wasn't working when I started writing, but it's working now)
This is when I run into a few problems. I can't shutdown the machine. Shutting down the machine leaves the machine in a permanent blank screen. All I see is a blank screen with a blinking cursor on the top left. I'm forced to turn off the machine manually by holding the power button, but I would rather not do that from now on. Logging in however works fine.
Removing and purging the Nvidia drivers solves the problem, but I much rather get shutting down the machine working with the drivers installed.
Any help is appreciated. If you guys need any info, I'll do what I can to provide it.
Edit: CTRL+Alt+F7 Image
Edit: Bumblebee broke again. I'm not exactly sure what I did to get it working before. Error message:
[ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not enable discrete graphics card
Edit: Logging in with the Nvidia prime profile causes a login loop.
