Please post the output of that command not just the command itself lol

Wait i told him to correct that on telegram lol.

Welcome :slight_smile:

PC from 2006 with minimum RAM for KDE is not a good choice.

You probably need an old nvidia driver.
Try Xfce that should be better for this PC.

My GPU is Nvidia Geforce GT 710

I know, but I do not know which driver is needed :frowning:

Form search is often helpful

It is also in the Chaotic-AUR anyway, no need to install from AUR.


Like the template say:

Before you open a new help request, read relevant sections of the Arch and Garuda wiki.
Thoroughly search your issue and any error messages in the forum and on the web.


First thing we have to learn is search the right way,
filo knows the way.


I have upgraded windows 10 to windows 11 and it run smoothly . Nvidia and other driver also installs automatically.

And now why I need so many requirements for Linux.
F...... Linux :yawning_face:

Blame Nvidia not Linux.


My tip, then stick with M$.

I edited your post to remove your expletive. Be aware that we have some very young Linux users on this forum, so please keep your language clean.

Do you want to know why we have some very young Linux users here? The reason is because they are not afraid to spend their time using a search engine to find answers to their issues.

My kids were using Linux by 8-10 years of age. If they could do it, I'm sure you should be able to manage it without resorting to expletives and slamming Linux because of you're inadequacies.

Perhaps a little quiet time would help you rethink your behavior on our forum.
