nVidia Drivers + Vulkan - Which work?
Boldos 12 June 2017 at 2:34 pm UTC

I have a laptop with GTX 660M; I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and (generally speaking) nVidia proprietary drivers.
- I know that Vulkan >used to< work on my system (tested on Talos Principle and Mad Max games), but during the past months/week, it stopped working.
- I have tried and exchanged several nv driver versions, mainly because the standard version (not sure which one it is these days - around 370.28?) and some later versions (like 378.13) had a bug after one of the updates and were showing awful data noise on the Unity desktop around app windows after suspend/resume.
- I got stuck with 381.22, which - at that time - were the only drivers NOT showing the data noise around my desktop windows.

Now for the issue:
I was very surprised this week (week 23) that Vulkan stopped working in any of my games (tested not working on Talos Principle, Mad Max, Ballistic Overkill).

My question is, which nv proprietary drivers are you guys using for Vulkan, and with which cards? Is this the issue with drivers or is there something going wrong with my distro packages/config/updates?

Thanks a lot...

I'm currently on Ubuntu 17.04 with 381.22 and Vulkan works fine for me. Talos produces pretty extensive logs. Does that give you any hints?
