nvidia-settings application does not open and does not return any errors

Add ibt=off kernel parameter

How can I do that?

In addition to the suggestion above, whose how-to could be easily found in the forum, anyway reported below:

  • sudo micro /etc/default/grub, add ibt=off at the end of the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, save and exit
  • sudo update-grub and reboot

I see in your inxi's that you changed a lot of kernels (e.g. lts, xanmod, zen) so your dkms might be in troubles. So you could try a:
sudo dkms autoinstall and, in case of errors, check the log file indicated by the results.


I did but it still doesn't work. Could it be a problem with the drivers?

Did what? ibt=off, dkms autoinstall or both?
For the dkms autoinstall it would be useful to see the terminal output and, if applicable, the error log.

I added ibt=off and did dkms autoinstall, no errors.

But still nvidia setting is not working.

Shouldn't he have other options?

Your driver is not loaded. That's the problem in my opinion. But I don't have other suggestions...


Can you help me how to download?

Try with the HW assistant (Garuda Welcome - > Garuda Settings Manager - > Hardware Configuration) and autoinstall drivers.
Altrrnatively the same command executed by the HW assistant:

sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300

PLease, read.

I think I did something wrong while deleting or installing the drivers.

Who knows? I don't have deep knowledge of Nvidia stuff, I don't use Nvidia. Until someone else jumps in, maybe recheck the ibt=off process, since it was not shown in the inxi in the recently trashed topic.

If you start KDE on Nvidia graphics instead of Intel you should get more options. Also send garuda-inxi again.

Did you try with prime-run?
