Steam does not run with Nvidia 410 drivers anymore?
Closed, DuplicatePublic


As the title says, Steam system information does not show the nvidia graphics card anymore? My laptop does not support Optimus, and as such it always runs on the discrete graphics card, GTX 1060.

This is the system information displayed by Steam

We've had a regression that I'll be fixing later tonight. Steam isn't failing: Xorg isn't loading the right video driver. It's falling back to llvmpipe (software renderer).

I was able to get glxinfo to show that it loaded the Nvidia drivers after a clean reinstall, but then Steam would not run as the 32bit drivers were missing. Once I clean reinstalled the 32bit drivers as well, it once again fell back to llvmpipe. Hope that helps.
