Thank you in advance! ** Tags added: verification-needed -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to ubuntu-drivers-common in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1667198 Title: gpu-manager should also support using custom xorg.conf files for Nvidia Status in HWE Next: Incomplete Status in OEM Priority Project: Confirmed Status in ubuntu-drivers-common package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in ubuntu-drivers-common source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in ubuntu-drivers-common source package in Zesty: Fix Committed Bug description: SRU Request: [Impact] Different GPUs may require different options in the xorg.conf file. Currently this is not possible, since the options have been hardcoded in gpu-manager to configure the system automatically. This new (backported) feature allows users to tell gpu-manager to use their own custom xorg.confs for their NVIDIA GPUs. [Test Case] 1) Enable the xenial-proposed repository, and install the ubuntu-drivers-common and the nvidia-prime packages. 2) Install the nvidia driver. 3) Place your configuration file(s) in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d directory. If you are using a non-hybrid system, you can create the /usr/share /gpu-manager.d/non-hybrid file. In case of a hybrid system, you can specify /usr/share/gpu-manager.d/hybrid-performance and/or /usr/share /gpu-manager.d/hybrid-power-saving, depending on the power profile you intend to apply your settings to. 4) Restart the system and see if it boots correctly. If unsure, please attach your /var/log/gpu-manager.log and /var/log/Xorg.0.log 5) Make sure that the /etc/X11/xorg.conf matches the file you specified in 3) [Regression Potential] Low, the above mentioned changes are already in Artful, and will not affect the system's behaviour unless new configuration files are put in the /usr/share/gpu-manager.d/ directory. ______________________________ This feature has been implemented for Intel (ex. gpumanager_uxa), which is parsing kernel parameter to add option in xorg.conf (commit ff3a4e54). And now Nvidia also need this feature to add Option "nvidiaXineramaInfo" "off" to fix some issues. Btw, I'm thinking it might be a more flexible to have a config file which user could add all options as they want so that we could prevent keeping change gpu-manager when some more options are needed in the future.
