I am trying to get my system to use the mx150 graphics card

Problem: Nvidia x Server settings show blank

enter image description here

The driver manager shows that i'm using nvidia-driver-390 and also says "No proprietary drivers are in use"

enter image description here

What i've tried:

  1. sudo apt purge nvidia*
  2. sudo apt update
  3. sudo apt upgrade
  4. sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

The output of inxi -G shows:

Card-1: Intel UHD Graphics 620 Card-2: NVIDIA GP108M [GeForce MX150] Display Server: X.Org 1.19.6 drivers: modesetting,nouveau (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1920x1080@59.98hz OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2) version: 4.5 Mesa 18.0.5

What steps can i take to fix the issue at hand?

  • Is pressing the "Apply Changes" button out of question? – Rui F Ribeiro Jan 5 at 12:55
  • It's greyed out implying it's already in use i'm assuming – Martijn.Z Jan 5 at 13:05
