Summary0005652: nvidia-settings can't open such that we can't change Xorg to nvidia
Descriptionuname -a
Linux kali 5.2.0-kali2-amd64 0000001 SMP Debian 5.2.9-2kali1 (2019-08-22) x86_64 GNU/Linux


my laptop is ASUS X550VX, it contain two graphic card nvidia and intel.

Intel® Core™ i7 6700HQ Processor
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 950M


I just install nvidia drivers as step by step from this site.
(*https://docs.kali.org/general-use/install-nvidia-drivers-on-kali-linux*)

Now,my nvidia GPU is work, but I can't change from intel to nvidia by nvidia-settings.just like this

(*qiancan-chen@kali:~$ nvidia-settings

ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system*)

I guess this problem maybe have some relationship with "software-properties-gtk problem".
when I type software-properties-gtk in terminal, it can't work,prompting some error like this

(*qiancan-chen@kali:~$ software-properties-gtk
ERROR:root:Cannot import UbuntuDrivers: No module named 'UbuntuDrivers'*)

Um...NO UbuntuDrivers...

I give some files about errors,

first one about when I type "apt install -y ocl-icd-libopencl1 nvidia-driver nvidia-cuda-toolkit" in terminal when install finish.

second one about software-properties-gtk in terminal.

I think it can work from ubuntu source cause ubuntu driver fix some file from original nvidia driver.

I test the ubuntu driver in ubuntu system, using ppa install nvidia driver, nvdia-setting is working.

so may be we fix software-properties-gtk, and install ubuntu driver, the problem will be solved.
