Some software stopped working

I made no changes on the hardware
The only changes related to software was an automatic update a couple of days ago

As the title says some programs do not work anymore

KeepassXC refuses to run

if I click the icon it does nothing, if I try to run it through the console I get this error

qt.glx: qglx_findConfig: Failed to finding matching FBConfig for QSurfaceFormat(version 2.0, options QFlagsQSurfaceFormat::FormatOption(), depthBufferSize -1, redBufferSize 1, greenBufferSize 1, blueBufferSize 1, alphaBufferSize -1, stencilBufferSize -1, samples -1, swapBehavior QSurfaceFormat::SingleBuffer, swapInterval 1, colorSpace QSurfaceFormat::DefaultColorSpace, profile QSurfaceFormat::NoProfile)

Could not initialize GLX

Steam runs, but only minimized on the system tray, it refuses to open a window (I have no errors in a console, yet it does not work properly)

Blender also refuses to work, similarly to keepassXC, clicking the icon does nothing, on the console I got this

Error! GLX_ARB_create_context not available.
Error! GLX_ARB_create_context not available.
Error! GLX_ARB_create_context not available.

Error! GLX_ARB_create_context not available.
Error! Unsupported graphics card or driver.
A graphics card and driver with support for OpenGL 3.3 or higher is required.
The program will now close.

Kodi Does not work neither, launching the program using the console I get this:

libEGL warning: DRI3: Screen seems not DRI3 capable
libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate

The only relevant part of the log kodi creates is this one at the end

They worked before
Plasma is the desktop enviroment, in case it’s relevant
the graphic card is a RTX 3060

I tried to reinstall nvidia drivers by running nvidia-inst, but since they are already installed it does nothing and I don’t find an option to first uninstall them first

You can use nvidia-inst -n which will revert to nouveau open source drivers and reboot. Then you can check with inxi -Ga to see that nouveau open source drivers are installed. Then you can reinstall the nvidia drivers again.

Edit: After reinstalling the nvidia drivers make sure to reboot.

Then you can check again inxi -Ga

Thanks!!. It worked… kinda?

with nvidia-inst -n stuff works

but when I install the nvidia drivers (nvidia-inst without options) the problems return

And yes, I’m rebooting after every installation

Welcome to the forum! :smile:

First I suggest you make sure system is updated with command

sudo pacman -Syu

Then, for the record, please show the output of

inxi -Fza    # click the </> button to make it more readable
pacman -Qs nvidia

after running nvidia-inst and reboot.

ok, the system updated this


core/linux          6.4.9.arch1-1    6.4.10.arch1-1         0,07 MiB             125,53 MiB

So I rebooted

after running nvidia-inst and rebooting

Looks like you have a lot of odd stuff installed. Don’t think it’s an Nvidia issue.

I don’t have odd stuff installed, I barelly had time to install stuff, it’s almost a fresh install

If you are talking about the vulnerabilities, those are caused by the hardware. They are unrelated to the software, intel procesors have plenty of them (and I honestly though the different mitigations were included by default either during the OS installation or the subsequent updates)

These are not error messages.
Dracut is just being verbose, informing that what is not installed in your system won’t be part of the build images.

If you don’t want to see them, you could enable quiet flag in: /etc/kernel-install-for-dracut.conf

A fresh install doesn’t have Blender, Steam, KeepassXC, Kodi etc etc so that is what i meant by some odd stuff installed.

All that is far from being “odd”, I’d say they are even the opposite, since they are very common software used today

All errors point to GLX (OpenGL Extension to the X Window System) and they work the nouveau drivers so there must be something related with the nvidia drivers

1 Like

Just because i use the word odd don’t take offence it’s just a term and yes it does point to OpenGl. I have run across this with other users sometimes. I am running Wayland with my Nvidia GTX 1060 and have no issues but I’m not using the software in question. The Nvidia drivers on your system are installed properly as shown by the output but there is some configuration not working correctly.

Yes, a term that means “strange” or “uncommon”. But there’s no point in continuing the discussion.

Anyways, I installed more software just to try to get more error messages or trying to guess the common cause

Libreoffice work, just like thunderbird, ferdium, Inkscape, Gimp, VLC

The krita one give some more details, idk if it’s useful

Maybe this manjaro post might be helpful regarding glx.

Have you tested opengl to see if it’s working.

eglgears_x11

or

glxgears

@Adrian_Alucard
I have installed Blender and it is working for me on Nvidia with Wayland. I have no idea how to use it to any degree but it does launch.

I suppose you could try installing the Nvidia drivers not using the dkms version. So what i mean by that would be first to revert back to nouveau open source with nvidia-inst -n

Then you could remove all the nvidia drivers after checking what is still on the system because they are still there just not in use. Then you could manually install the nvidia drivers with pacman.

sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-libgl nvidia-settings

This is just an idea you could try if you wanted.

Those are a lot of things. I’ll try the faster ones first

sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-libgl nvidia-settings

Done. Same results as nvidia-inst (stuff does not works, same errors)

I have not reverted to the nouveau drivers

Now I’ll try the Manjaro post
