      Any ideas if the 340 driver could be forced to work with Wayland? It currently falls back to X11.

    4. Thanks for the excellent guide! My glmark2 score with Nouvea was around 170. With the proprietary drivers for my low-profile GeForce GT 1030, my score increased to about 5200.

      Under /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/ you find a file called 61-gdm.rules, just edit that file and comment out (#) the line that reads ‘DRIVER==”nvidia”, RUN+=”/usr/libexec/gdm-disable-wayland”‘ and you will revert to a standard setup where your standard session is a Wayland session, but with a x.org session available as a fallback.

    11. There is a new 340 driver released (340.108), but looks like it still needs the patch for newer kernels.
      Any chance you can provide a patched installer?

    14. I have followed the installation guide. One thing to note though – I didn’t have step 2.8.6 nVidia Installer Automatic Xorg Config and Backup during my installation. Moreover, nvidia-settings won’t open because I get the following error:

      ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system

      More info:

      23:58 $ nvidia-installer -v |grep version

      • Hi Rafal,

        Problem might be your nVidia Optimus card. You can try to reinstall drivers to see if you can install it successfully. If it still not work, then unfortunately your nVidia Optimus card won’t work with Linux drivers. Check more info from step 1.2 NVIDIA Optimus Technology.
