[SOLVED] Nvidia 720M nouveau write fault - Gnome not well displayed

Hi guys,

If I use

xf86-video-nouveau

and

nouveau-dri

I get in trobles, at boot I get messages like:

[   16.969376] nouveau E[   PFIFO][0000:01:00.0] write fault at 0x0000000000 [INVALID_STORAGE_TYPE] from BAR3/BAR_WRITE on channel 0x003fe38000 [unknown]

The gdm starts but I can only use a reduced graphics version of gnome (that's almost ugly)

I tried to install

nvidia

or

nvidia-304xx

but gdm prints an error (Oops! Something went wrong) and it is not working.

Maybe I forgot some step, I don't know, but if you can suggest me something I'd really appreciate.

Thank you.

Re: [SOLVED] Nvidia 720M nouveau write fault - Gnome not well displayed

Update: I solved the drivers problem by using Bumblebee which let me install intel-dri drivers plus nvidia official drivers, so I don't get nouveau error messages anymore.

But I still have that terrible display of gnome!

I will try with other Desktop Environments to see if the 3D acceleration works, and it is just a matter of gnome-default-theme that's temporary terrible.

lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
lspci | grep 3D
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] (rev a1)
lspci -k 
...
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] (rev a1)
	Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. GeForce GT 720M
	Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia
...

Lets me think I did it, by the drivers point of view.

I tried Cinnamon and it works pretty fine, but I wanted gnome 3!

If someone can help me, otherwise I will close this topic and look for an help about gnome 3!

Ok, if I type ALT+F2 everytime and give "r" as command, I can hope that it works.

So I will use

gnome-session-properties

and then I add

gnome-shell --replace

For the moment I stop here, hope there will be a better solution it after or before.
