Ubuntu – How to get nvidia-persistenced daemon to work properly


I have some graphical issues on login when I'm using the intel gpu.
I checked the boot logs and it shows that the nvidia persistence service failed to load on the intel gpu. After running systemctl status nvidia-persistenced.service I found that nvidia-persistenced tries to run the following command /usr/bin/nvidia-persistenced --user nvidia-persistenced --no-persistence-mode --verbose but /usr/bin/nvidia-persistenced doesn't exist.

Does anyone know how to get nvidia-persistenced to run properly?

Best Answer

At least for nvidia-375==375.66-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia-375/bin/nvidia-persistenced /usr/bin/nvidia-persistenced

looks like enough.
