Thread: Vulkan not working with NVIDIA GTX1050

  1. #1

    Default Vulkan not working with NVIDIA GTX1050

    Tried to install vulkan after installing the Nvidia Bumblebee drivers. First, I checked that the video card is detected using the following command:

    # lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:591b] (rev 04)
    Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:118a]
    Kernel driver in use: i915
    Kernel modules: i915
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile] [10de:1c8d] (rev ff)
    Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
    02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Wireless 8265 / 8275 [8086:24fd] (rev 78)
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 [8086:0010]

    I followed the instructions from the following link to install Vulkan:

    To verify the installation, I execute the command "vulkaninfo | less" and my video card seems not to be detected. The output is as follows:

    I would image you need to use optirun so it will use the nvidia gpu...

    optirun vulkaninfo | less
    Suggest you also test with the other checks here
