Dell Latitude 5580 display drivers

Dell
Intel

#1

I had to start my ubuntu mate 16.4 by adding nouveau.nodeset=0 to the linux line other wise it hangs. I am now trying to install the correct display drivers. If I go to additional drivers, it says no propriety drivers are in use.
If I run sudo lshw -c display I get the following output:

*-display UNCLAIMED description: 3D controller product: NVIDIA Corporation vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: [email protected]:01:00.0 version: a2 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory:ec000000-ecffffff memory:c0000000-cfffffff memory:d0000000-d1ffffff ioport:e000(size=128) memory:ed000000-ed07ffff *-display description: VGA compatible controller product: Intel Corporation vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: [email protected]:00:02.0 version: 04 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pciexpress msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 resources: irq:129 memory:eb000000-ebffffff memory:80000000-8fffffff ioport:f000(size=64) memory:c0000-dffff

What drivers do I need to install for this laptop and where do I get it?

I found the answer here: https://gist.github.com/wangruohui/df039f0dc434d6486f5d4d098aa52d07

This fixed my problem

sudo apt-get -y install nvidia-375 nvidia-modprobe


#3

To avoid the system to hang up at start or when using lspci, adding acpi_rev_override=5 to boot params (found on https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Dell_Latitude_5580) allows to use bumblebee with proprietary nvidia driver.
