Software rendering mode cinnamon on debian 10

Postby Ulrik » 2020-10-01 09:08

Yesterday I installed debian 10 with cinnamon but when I open the computer I get an error:
"Cinnamon is running without hardware video acceleration, and there might be higher CPU usage than normal ...."

I have looked at the drivers of the video card and I have the nouveau

inxi -Fxz
Device-1: NVIDIA GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 3GB] vendor: Gigabyte
driver: nouveau v: kernel bus ID: 01:00.0
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.4 driver: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa
resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz, 1920x1080~60Hz
OpenGL: renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 7.0 256 bits) v: 3.3 Mesa 18.3.6
direct render: Yes
Also I notice that the environment is not as fluid as it should be and the YT videos have lag, I suppose that is why.

If that doesn't help with the free nouveau driver, you may have to turn to the dark side and use the non-free Nvidia driver. Read and understand the Debian wiki entry on doing that first, since people not following the instructions and screwing up their GUI is one of the most common problems here.

Your card is supported by the standard nvidia-driver in Buster nonfree, or by the latest in backports (but currently broken there, so don't do that right now)
