Hi nvidia card problems

Hi, I'll be back with a topic. why, once every month, half or two months, the black screen appears and I can only right-click. ?

Warning: No installed USB configs!

:confused:

Which black screen? Where?? When???

Please be more specific...

:innocent:

Well, I don't know, every time I open it, I immediately enter an application, and my screen goes black, I don't have the notification bar, I don't have Latte, I can't right-click. But that depends on when he does. and in order to make it no longer so, I have to restart it, and it will come back, but then again. What could I do .? Thanks for your time

I'm still :confused: ...

So you:

  • start your computer, everything is OK
  • You log on and everything is OK as well
  • You start any application and your screen turns an even black?
  • Or a specific application?
  • Or something else entirely???

Also, please read this:


and post some more information so we can see what's really going on. After you answer the above, we'll know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies...

:innocent:

My screen remains black without me being able to give a single click when I enter applications, such as google chrome, visual studio, firefox. and I don't even have the settings bar anymore. I tried to update it but it still does.

Would changing to a full nVidia solution be helpful to you instead of the hybrid driver?

:innocent:

What did you do? Your intake fans seemed to have imbibed something wacky. :crazy_face:

It looks as if the system booted correctly but the plasmashell process crashed, then you get black screen (no wallpaper) and no system default panels or widgets.

Open system monitor and check if plasmashell is present. If not, it will confirm that plasmashell crashed. You can start it manually with krunner by typing plasmashell and then enter.

That is the easy part. The more worrying part is, why plasmashell crashed? This shouldn't happen but some potential reasons may be corrupted configs or some bugged configuration combination (with multi-monitor for example) or maybe some widget or added plasmscript is causing trouble, etc.

Of course, I may be wrong and the black screen is caused by something else.

krunner should work, so alt+space should open krunner box. Type plasmashell there and it will find plasmashell process that you can start.
This way you can open any app or find a file, so even if plasmashell is not functioning, you still can do basically almost everything.

Is plasmashell crashing all the time or maybe only after the boot? Or maybe occasionally?

I don't think that in this case hardware matters. Plasmashell or any kde component being crashy means in almost all cases a wrong config file.

If you create a test, default user and log in, the issue will not be there.

Do a copy and delete this config and relog the session:

cp ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc.bak
rm ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc

You will land in default desktop without a wallpaper and with default Plasma panel. But your latte will be there, so it may double the panel (in your case the panel will be behind the dock, but you can easily remove it).
Anyway, if this config was at fault, plasmashell will work again and you can just config the desktop again.

If this didn't help, try other plasma configs. The same way, first do a backup file of the config, then delete the current one and relog session to see the changes.

That's a totally different issue than I thought this was...

Does this also happen under a newly created user? (E.G. sami2 )

plasmashell crashing occasionally
