Install Nvidia Drivers Problem (

Hello! I am having a problem with installing Nvidia Drivers. Every time I try and install the driver, it says "Cannot load library /usr/lib/qt/plugins/ ( cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory." Also, when I try and go to hardware configuration the same exact thing happens. Hardware configuration also states:
"An error occurred during you last system upgrade, leaving an orphaned control module behind", and
"You have old third party modules lying around"
I have restarted my computer, and done sudo pacman -Syyu, both which did nothing. Any help? Thanks :slight_smile:


Is part of manjaro-settings-manager-kcm

Is from hwinfo

My suggestion is to run this command:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu manjaro-settings-manager-kcm hwinfo

Reboot once is done, and try to install nvidia driver again.

Thank you! I'm installing it rn. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Great! My Nvidia drivers are working, but now my laptop is not connecting to my monitor. I am using a DP port rn.

In that case, even tho is a different issue, check this out

Well, uh, I think I broke Manjaro... Its kicking in a stupid amount of fan and also showing a terminal window and my background and that's it. Um, not really sure what optimum manager really did, but gonna have to reinstall Manjaro I think.

Please provide from terminal
inxi -Fxxxza --no-host
You have to make sure you read that tutorial twice, then start doing what is instructing.

I mean it worked, I saw the Intel and Nvidia switcher, but the second I switched to Nvidia then it gave me all of this weird stuff. Also, I'll attach what I'm seeing with my phone. Here's what I got:

If you will edit the comment above, please use code tags ``` above and bellow the output text.
The interface is up scaled, hence is not fitting the monitor resolution.
Type in that terminal
And try to navigate to Display Settings and change the resolution and layout.

My monitor is still not showing anything on Nvidia, Intel, or Hybrid mode. The resolution is now fixed, but is there a reason my monitor stopped working?

Ok, now that you updated the system, you have to change the kernel. The one you are using is EOL. Run this command
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux57
Reboot after that. Take a look again if there are any inconsistencies mentioned for optimus-manager.
