Re: nVidia gtx1060 video resolution problem

How did you install?

Is your system still using the default nouveau driver?
Is your hardware an optimus laptop (which will need setting up for nvidia)?

Post the output of (using [ code ] tags please):

lspci -nn | egrep -i "3d|display|vga"

Re: nVidia gtx1060 video resolution problem

So you hadn't rebooted before?

If you could edit the title of your first post and add "[SOLVED]" it may help others looking for an answer.

And PLEASE read the Forum Rules about asking questions the right way, and using linked thumbnails instead of fullsize images. Not everyone has a fast connection and big data allowances hmm

My experience is that you will be in a world of pain if you try to do any xorg configuration, as described in many places.

You still haven't said how you installed the driver. It is likely to be

sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver

But you can check what is needed using nvidia-detect (which you may have to install).

Check this post.

Re: nVidia gtx1060 video resolution problem

well yes I don't want to mess with Xorg either (but that's why i love BunsenLab I can reinstall it in 15 min if any issue, I'm still test it anyway smile) )
- yes that's how i installed drivers from beginning but later i used  back port version for same version like in Helium I just installed too many times on helium and honestly don't remember last version where i get it from//

but definitely i had same issue like in image in helium before !!


some delay before booting Helium but i think this is for another topic !

Re: nVidia gtx1060 video resolution problem

I think I answered all your questions !!!

How did you install? = like usually <sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver>

Is your system still using the default nouveau driver? = NO its using nvidia(check screenshot for details !!!)
Is your hardware an optimus laptop (which will need setting up for nvidia)? NO its a desktop PC
