Hello all, as everybody knows, Deepin offers Nouveau and 390.67 Nvidia propietary drivers in its available driver options.

Here I'll teach - for those who want it for some reason - how to install latest long live / short live drivers on Deepin:

* Install Deepin's drivers with sudo apt install nvidia-driver, then reboot.
* After reboot, and without login in, use Ctrl + Alt + F2 to enter to the console.
* You'll see that you need to put your login info, do it, and then put sudo su and enter the password.
* Now write service lightdm stop, it will end the X session, necessary to install the drivers.
* Delete the newly installed drivers apt purge nvidia* && apt autoremove --purge

* Move to the directory in which Nvidia drivers file is located, using cd -path to directory-
* Type chmod a+x *run, now the file can be used as an executable (make sure it is the only .run file at your directory).
* Type sh *run, the Nvidia Driver will unpack and start to run, simply follow the steps it will say.

* After reboot, instead Nvidia Driver, maybe Nouveau will be running, so reboot again if this happens and type Ctrl + Alt + F2 // sudo su // service lightdm stop // sh *run
* You'll be running the .run file again, but not for another install, it will ask you to activate a "modprobe file" to disable the Nouveau drivers, autorize it to do that task, then reboot.


After rebooting you'll have the Nvidia 410 drivers running.

You can see the list of drivers supported by X driver version, on Nvidia's page... As yours is a laptop, maybe you need to check for last Bumblebee or Prime drivers at their pages, I can not give help about them because I do not use them, I advice.

As an advice, installing last drivers is a little risky because they aren't verified by Deepin's devs, always save the .run file of the last Nvidia driver sucessfully installed, to reinstall it if the new driver fails for some reason.

Adding some info: If Nouveau driver, as in last Deepin versions it does, makes impossible to change to propietary drivers with Deepin Graphics Manager (because instalation fails after reboot). Or, if installing the Nvidia driver from official page and it fails, even after using the modprobe file option. Its because Nouveau running even before greeting window.
So:
- sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
- add it to the note blacklist nouveau
                                options nouveau modeset=0

- sudo update-initramfs -u
Then reboot and repeat the installing process again.

After 15.7 update, blacklisting Nouveau makes impossible to login, even impossible to open the console with ctrl + alt + F2, so don't do this. Install 390.67 Deepin drivers, with sudo apt install nvidia-driver

Lenovo Legion Y720 15IKB  - there is noway  to connect this notebook using  via hdmi 2 dvi cable (China) to Benq-Siemens GW2250 display.  Xrandr do not show any HDMI port.

But Windows10  working well , MX linux and Kubuntu also working good with second display.
It is impossible to install Nvidia drivers from .run file because of debian packages, problem to stop lightdm (xserver).

Guys I hate your software much  more and more!

And you "new " Gtaphics driver manager do not want to switch to NVIDIA.  Maybe you made something wrong.

At all there is only ONE good thing at your OS - Full Pirate version of Crossover  - other is fullshit, especially Ukrainian translation

I didn't manage to remove the old version (390) by sudo apt purge nvidia*. There are always some package dependence problem.

As version 15.8 and 15.9 all I can say is that its impossible to install the last drivers from official page, so I do not recommend it for now.

or just use the ppa?
  1. apt purge nvidia* && apt autoremove --purge
  2. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
  3. sudo apt update
  4. sudo apt install nvidia-driver-415
Copy the Code
Reboot and that's it. no need to work with files and stuff.

I tried that. After reboot I couldnt get into the login screen.
I did a dpkg repair in deepin recovery mode then I was able to boot into deepin with 1024x768 resolution. Thank god for Timeshift that saved my day

I have only been using deepin for 6 months, maybe some old timers can tell how often deepin update Nvidia graphic drivers?

Most distros don't distribute Nvidia's 410 series till now, not even Ubuntu, not even Debian, or Fedora, only Arch, and Ubuntu's ppa are testing ones. The only distros which offer the new drivers officially are Arch Linux's based ones.
