What are your "display problems"? How do you know the problem isn't Mesa or Kwin
or Plasma rather than a kernel or DDX driver? Have you tried disabling compositing
in systemsettings5? Does the trouble go away if you use a different WM? What was
the last thing you remember doing before "display problems" began? Does
/etc/X11/xorg.conf exist? If it does, try removing it. The nouveau DDX and
modesetting DDX almost never need it. Is there anything in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/?
If yes, what is in it? Upload your /var/log/Xorg.0.log where we can see it (man
pastebinit) and maybe someone can spot a problem. Inxi doesn't show the nouveau
DDX to be available. Maybe installing xserver-xorg-video-nouveau would improve
things. If it's already installed, an NVidia driver remnant might be blocking its use.
