When I try to switch to my NVIDIA this happens:
ERROR: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/screen-resolution-extra/nvidia-prime.py", line 22, in <module> import sys, dbus, logging ImportError: No module named 'dbus'
If it helps there is another error:
** Message: PRIME: Requires offloading ** Message: PRIME: is it supported? yes ERROR: nvidia-settings could not find the registry key file. This file should have been installed along with this driver at /usr/share/nvidia/nvidia-application-profiles-key-documentation. The application profiles will continue to work, but values cannot be prepopulated or validated, and will not be listed in the help text. Please see the README for possible values and descriptions.
along with lots of gtk theme parsing errors.
I have GT 635M GPU and I'm running ubuntu 16.04 LTS with gnome desktop installed.
Please help :/
I tried running
sudo apt-get install python-dbus
python-dbus is already the newest version (1.2.0-3).
Switching GPU still produces the same error.
I edited the nvidia-prime.py as Sneetsher suggested. Running nvidia-settings won't print the sys.version and sys.path, but this is the output if I run the script directly.
