OK, I honestly forgot that I included an example config file. Since I don't have the hardware for testing, and since I still don't have a sense from users that it is a requirement, I will leave it in the post_install and depend on the user's ability to read pacman's output and manually copy the example over.

Good to know you guys figured it out.

But lets remember this thread is not for discussing display managers or window managers. The best would be a wiki entry explaining all your specific DM and WM configs and tweaks.

Let's keep this space to talk about the NVIDIA driver.

Alright is seems that sddm might be the culprit with 5.11 kernel not showing. I went and disabled sddm login manager and installed lightdm-gtk-greeter and enabled it with systemctl and rebooted to linux 5.11 and works just fine.

Update - It seems that sddm desktop manager does want to show up on 5.11 but on 5.10 it works fine. So my idea is what if i just launch plasma desktop without a desktop manager. I stopped sddm with systemctl. I made my ~/.xinitrc i type in "exec startplasma-x11" for xorg and saved and exit. I typed in "startx startplasma-x11" and boom plasma DE worked so i might have a feeling that sddm or something is the cause of the issue. I gonna have to test other login managers or desktop manager to see what up. But i finally managed to get to the desktop with 5.11 kernel.

@CourteousGeek without providing dmesg logs or Xorg logs I can't help you. @esturiano I don't use SDDM.

I don't want to spam the thread with useless messages. If you guys want I can try help. I'm on Freenode and

@vicpt I saw your сcomments in step 15 and did everything as you suggested. But the SDDM does not start. Yours starts, but several users report that it does not.

@vicpt I've tried but can't to get passed the tty,i have added the xorg config in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf correct with syntax and permissions seems normal, i can't get an Xorg log because sddm needs to be started. 5.10 works normal but 5.11 don't.

@Zappo-II for older kernels the best approach is building yourself. For 5.4 you have all you need here:

@ansgoati it should work, check your config file ownership and permissions (and syntax if you wrote by yourself). If all good and still not work, check your Xorg logs to see whats going on.

@esturiano not a driver problem, driver works as expected on 5.11.

vicpt commented on 2021-02-26 23:17

@graysky -18 works as expected. Message informing the user about the need of config file and a respective minimal (template) config file is the best approach in my opinion. Otherwise if installed automatically can break user specific configurations. So in sum, its all ok and working on kernel 5.11.
