• Cannot log in to Gnome x-org session (Nvidia problems)

    Hello everybody,

    I’m new to Antergos but had some sticky moments with Nvidia using other distros.

    To install Antergos i used Antergos live iso with nouveau.modeset=0 parameter.
    Then I installed distro without NVIDIA drivers (Cnchi feature).
    I’ve installed nvidia drivers via TTY, and simple replaced lightdm with SDDM.
    It’s any problem to log in (default session) but it uses “i915 driver” (intel GPU ?) when i choose Gnome x-org session to log in it freezes (default login background).

    Looking for workaround or tips how to install drivers properly :)

  • lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030[02]]'

    may you have hybrid graphics?


  • Of course… I completely forgot to mention it…

    [[email protected] ~]$ lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030[02]]'
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 530 [8086:191b] (rev 06) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    01:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GM107M [GeForce GTX 950M] [10de:139a] (rev a2)

  • I was able to install Antergos and Bumblebee. Everything seems to work i can log in to “gnome x-org” session but…

    [[email protected] ~]$ lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'
    	Kernel driver in use: i915

    It doesn’t use Nvidia GPU. When i try to run e.g steam using

    [[email protected] ~]$ optirun steam
    /home/pele/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 154: VERSION_ID: unbound variable
    /home/pele/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 154: VERSION_ID: unbound variable
    Running Steam on antergos  64-bit
    /home/pele/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 154: VERSION_ID: unbound variable
    STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
    Pins up-to-date!
    Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1506500000)

    Output is much longer…

    What am i doing wrong ? :(

  • first think comes to mind is may it is set to intel card inside Bios?

  • Don’t have any GPU settings inside BIOS :<
