I can get it to work if I remove xorg.conf. When having a xorg.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf I only have 2d graphics. If I remove xorg.conf I have 2d and 3d.

I wouldn't mind having xorg.conf removed, but I need to enable "Force Composition Pipeline" and that is something you need to set in xorg.conf.
I have googled my ass but hot finding a solution.

Is the xorg.conf needed to be in another folder than /etc/X11 or do i set my settings in another conf-file?


You don't need a xorg.conf (depreciated now a days) to enable Force Composition Pipeline

You can enable it from nvidia settings

In nvidia settings ☛ xserver display configuration ☛ advanced ☛ and put a check mark next to

Code: Select all
Force Full Composition Pipeline


Reboot

Better yet would be to run

Code: Select all
dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-kernel-dkms

I know that xorg.conf soon is removed. If I enable "Force Composition Pipeline" in nvidia-settings its gone after a reboot and need to enable it again. So until that is fixed (if it will be), I will use xorg.conf.

To solve my problem i need to add this:

Code: Select all
    ModulePath     "/usr/lib/nvidia/current"
    ModulePath     "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"

Under Section "Files"
in my xorg.conf.

So now I'm a happy camper :)

Thank you every one that tried to solve my problem!
