Debian has packages for the nvidia-driver have you tried using them? In case you can't find them make sure that there is a repository with non-free Software activated in /etc/apt/sources.list

I am wondering if you are running your card with nouveau(open source drivers) or nvidia drivers? I guess you are running on open source! You should try to install the proprietary drivers (nvidia drivers) to see if it is really reading your card wrong. With nvidia-setting you should be able to see everything related to your GPU. This site should show you ...

I experienced similar behavior with Linux Mint 17.1. Icons were changed when I switched to NVIDIA card. I've found a solution here: Icons, controls themes don't work after clean install The solution is to remove ~/.config/monitors.xml file. I assume, that the problem is connected with using an external monitor. Not sure if this workaround work with ...

I've managed to get it running; installed plasma desktop package: pacman -S plasma (more details here) and pointed X to it(appended the following line to ~/.xinit): exec startkde Running startx launches KDE.

Some clarifications: nvidia-340xx-utils is not the driver itself, it is utilities for the (if I've understood correctly) proprietary driver which you haven't installed. xf86-video-* is open source video drivers, of which xf86-video-nouveau is the nvidia compatible one. pacman -Ss searches for packages, whereas sudo pacman -S installs them. Use sudo pacman ...

I am pretty sure all those options you specify should be in the Device section with the nvidia driver and not the Screen section. Also UseDisplayDevice can also be set to "none" according to the docs but I have never tried this.

Figured it out. I went to NVIDIA's website and downloaded their Linux drivers. It was a pain figuring out how to install them because of an x server error but it turns out I had to kill gdm3. Once I did that they installed and now it works.

It seems to be due to Gnome3 in the first place. I run Gnome 3.16 on top of Arch and I also experience a serieus lag with the terminal and sometimes high cpu usage. Gnome still has a couple of bugs, since 2011.. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=186088 Just google on the combo Gnome and high memory usage. http://tinyurl.com/oj47p69

What worked for me was a similar approach to Dave C's. My monitor wasn't being identified so the driver would only give me the standard resolutions. First, look up the horizontal and vertical refresh rates for your monitor. If they aren't in the manual that came with the monitor (or the manual is no longer handy) you can probably get them from the ...

Per my troubleshooting (with the help of Antergos), I have solved the issue. First, install using the minimal ISO as it requires no hardware accelerated graphics. Reboot as instructed by the installer. Second, edit the boot option in GRUB; add the following to the call to start the kernel. systemd.unit=multi-user.target This starts the system in the ...
