Cannot set resolution on KDE5

Postby infestor » 2017-07-01 21:31

i am running debian testing (buster) and KDE plasma 5.8.7
i have nouveau installed:

Code: Select all
$ lsmod | grep nouveau
nouveau              1544192  0
mxm_wmi                16384  1 nouveau
ttm                    98304  1 nouveau
drm_kms_helper        155648  1 nouveau
drm                   360448  3 nouveau,ttm,drm_kms_helper
i2c_algo_bit           16384  1 nouveau
wmi                    16384  2 mxm_wmi,nouveau
video                  40960  1 nouveau
button                 16384  1 nouveau


my videocard seems to be detected by debian:

Code: Select all
$ lspci | grep -e VGA -e 3D
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 3GB] (rev a1)


but i am stuck with this horrible 1024*768 resolution:

PS: i suspect that the vendor info is wrong. i have no idea why debian recognized my nvidia gpu as SGI :x
Code: Select all
$ glxinfo | grep -i vendor
server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
    Vendor: VMware, Inc. (0xffffffff)
OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.

Install the nvidia driver,nouveau doesnt yet support a 1060 card.
Had the same problem with my gtx 950 could only get 1024x768 resolution.

how did you install the linux headers when you were installing the proprietary nvidia drivers? i can't seem to install them.

Added contrib and non-free to the sources list, then i installed the driver using synaptic package manager.
Selected nvidia -driver (375.66) that pulled in everything needed for install.
Dont no why you cant install the headers im running stretch not buster.

"SGI" refers to the original developers of the openGL software that comes with Debian and every other Linux, not to your hardware.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.1.0, Pale Moon 27.4.2, Liquorix kernel 4.12-6, mpv 0.26.0, Kodi 17.3, 0ad 0.0.22, Mesa 13.0.6
