I installed steam on Ubuntu 20.04 from the repositories using

sudo apt install steam

On running steam the first time, it downloads updates and seems to install them properly, the console output is (after many lines of the form "Downloading update (X of Y)…")

Following another post, I tried the same using

sudo apt install steam-installer && sudo apt install steam-devices

after purging steam and manually deleting local steam folders, but the output is exactly the same. I’m using a GeForce MX250 with the NVIDIA driver 450, and libnvidia-gl-450:i386 is already installed and at newest version (this seems to have been the problem for some other people).

I had installed ubuntu 20.01, which kept crashing randomly. Searching it up on google, tried all the solutions but didn’t work.

What I was able to assume is that most common problems point to graphics driver issues.

I’m not sure if it’s related to this issue of freezing randomly, but it seems that gnome-shell is crashing after this message.

I also reinstalled Nvidia drivers.

#StackBounty: #nvidia #multiple-monitors #display #hdmi Secondary Dell Display with Ubuntu on Acer Predator Helios 300

Bounty: 50

I have never used a secondary display with Ubuntu before.

For the record, my hardware is Acer Predator Helios 300 laptop. Here is the About page in settings

enter image description here

I have a Dell 27" external monitor that I am connecting with a HDMI cable.

Here’s how my settings screen looks like

enter image description here

So, it seems that the system is detecting the monitor, but my monitor says it does not read any signal from HDMI and goes to sleep after a few minutes.

As I was not the first person to come across this problem, my search turned out several of the previous questions.

  • From this question , I figured out I needed to install nvidia drivers, and so I did following this guide . (Not sure how I lived without this before. My video resolution is much better now)
  • From this question and this question , I realized I could use xrandr to troubleshoot the display, so, I installed it.

Here’s some related outputs from this

xrandr | grep connected
eDP-1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm
DP-1-0 disconnected
DP-1-1 disconnected
HDMI-1-0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 600mm x 340mm

and

xrandr | grep "*"
   1920x1080    144.03*+  60.02    60.01    59.97    59.96    59.93  
   1920x1080     60.00*   59.94    50.00  

I also have to say at the time of running the above commands, the Display Mode is set to Mirror instead of Join Displays. I am unable to Apply Join Display mode because the confirmation modal dialogue appears in the second screen which is not getting the signal.

From the outputs, it seems both displays have the same resolution of 1920x1080, but have a different frame rate. I am not sure if that is the problem and how to proceed from here. I appreciate any responses.

I tried running

xrandr --output HDMI-1-0 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 144.03

but it did not help. I don’t think it was supposed to, but I tried it anyway.

#StackBounty: #drivers #nvidia #20.04 #brightness #backlight Lenovo Legion 5 15IMH05H brightness control problem

Bounty: 50

I have a Lenovo Legion 5 15IMH05H with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6/Intel Corporation UHD Graphics (rev 05) and an Intel Processor.
After dual booting windows and Ubuntu 20.04 I encountered a few issues with the changing the brightness. The brightness keys or slider don’t work on Ubuntu but they have no problem on windows. I managed to change the brightness by installing the brightness controller app but it is not a perfect solution.
I found an intel_backlight folder in /sys/class/backlight and I tried changing the GRUB several times adding acpi_backlight = vendor, none or video after quick splash.
I also tried editing files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d like for example the 10-nvidia.conf and I tried creating a 20/80-intel.conf but nothing has worked so far.
It is perhaps worth noting that with intel conf solutions, sometimes vertical green lines appear on the background and the fonts become all blurry or missing. I had to use timeshift to return it to normal.
Here are some of the tutorials I have followed with none working:

If anyone has found another fix for the legion 5 or faced a similar issues please advise.
