Quoting: Sil_el_motthats why i love nvidia, you have zero tinkering.

This is objectively false depending on what you're trying to do and your distribution.

ok. sure. it always depends, but for me i had only once big pain with nvidia, when drivers on arch were not working right and this update just happened while i was installing arch from ground up and thought it was my fault that i only got a black screen.
since then i had nothing to do with settings or setup-hazzle with the nvidia. but once again, i am just a gaming and a bit python-programming guy... not anything deep in the wonderful things i could maybe achive with my system

Quoting: slaapliedjeShit, while I don't really want to, I may have to switch to an AMD card, what's the latest/greatest at this point?

I'm using a Vega 56, very stable for quite some time. The Navi cards 5700XT is slightly better performing but the drivers support can be a bit more touchy, although it's always improving. I think big Navi is on it's way in the next few months, so maybe wait for that if you really want a high end AMD card.

Thanks for this insight.
i have an 1080 ti, from comparisons the 5700xt should be slightly faster and better but i dont feel like changing now, as long as the drivers are not yet ready to play without a lot of tinkering.
thats why i love nvidia, you have zero tinkering.

Quoting: fagnerlnIt looks pretty interesting, I will try it later...

This reminds me that some years ago I installed the Big Picture as a DE on Ubuntu, the compositor was amazing. Someone knows how to install it?

should work, using this stuff. i did this a year ago, can't remember it in full, but i think this piece from github was all you need: https://github.com/ShadowApex/steamos-ubuntu

GNOME 3.36 "Gresik" released with a 'Do Not Disturb' mode, NVIDIA dGPU launch options

Quoting: HoriToo bad it completely breaks and crashes when using with an NVidia GPU and 4K monitors with scaling.

I have to use mine at either 100% scaling which is unusable, or 1080p which is usable but looks blurry and is very cramped.

From my point of view, this is the worst update yet, regardless of how many improvements it might have got. This bug spoiled it completely for me, and left a very bad taste.

thanks for this.
i just wanted to test gnome (using cinnamon for now) and your comment saved me from that experience.
