Display Configuration, Outputs could not be saved due to error


  • Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):
    In Display Configuration, when selecting Enable & Primary for Laptop screen, Apply, I get the following message “Outputs could not be saved due to error”.

I have tried Nvida driver 390 Install - #10 by GLWolf but that didn’t fix the issue.
I’m not even sure if this is a nvidia issue or something else.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Relevant informations (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):

Looks like no one here knows the answer. Try doing an internet search. Edit: Or no one here that knows has seen your post yet.

Don’t know if this helps but found this.

Also would be helpful to know if what you are trying to do works on other Linux distro using nouveau driver.

Hi ben97
Just found your posts in https://forum.openmandriva.org/t/nvidia-drivers-and-om-lx-4/2741/19
Reading through [Chapter 8. Common Problems] now.
But going on holidays, so that will have to wait until next week.
Thanks for your tips and leads so far Ben.
