@samcarboni ... THANK YOU!

I had been successfully folding on Ubuntu 18.04 with both CPU and NVIDIA GTX 1050 until suddenly the GPU slot stopped working. In the log file, it was stated that I might need to update the video driver. So I updated the Nvidia driver from 390.x to 440.x, but then it caused other problems. Having had in the back of my mind for some time to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, I did so, then I wasn't able to install FAHControl due to dependency issues.

Now everything is working as before, thanks to your post. :D

For a 1050 you don't really need any newer drivers past 330. driver ver.~330 and beyond, are mostly for optimizations for RTX gpus.
Your GPU won't just shut down because of a driver issue.
If it worked before, it should still work.

There may be other (hardware related) issues.

I can testify that I successfully installed FAH on a totally FRESH, CLEAN, and "MINIMAL" install of Ubuntu 20.04, using the following:

Code: Select all
cd ~/Downloads/

wget -c https://download.foldingathome.org/releases/public/release/fahclient/debian-stable-64bit/v7.6/fahclient_7.6.13_amd64.deb
wget -c https://download.foldingathome.org/releases/public/release/fahcontrol/debian-stable-64bit/v7.6/fahcontrol_7.6.13-1_all.deb
wget -c https://download.foldingathome.org/releases/public/release/fahviewer/debian-stable-64bit/v7.6/fahviewer_7.6.13_amd64.deb

wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pygtk/python-gtk2_2.24.0-6_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i --force-depends fahclient_7.6.13_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i --force-depends fahcontrol_7.6.13-1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-depends python-gtk2_2.24.0-6_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install python-gnome2

sudo dpkg -i --force-depends fahviewer_7.6.13_amd64.deb

sudo apt --fix-broken install


For the record, my desktop PC is configured to dual-boot into Windows 10 or Ubuntu 20.04. I have Folding@Home installed in both OS environments. But I find that not only does my Ubuntu 20.04 FAH work very smoothly, but it works even better and more efficiently than my Win10 installation -- in the sense that my PPD seems to be higher on Ubuntu 20.04 than it is on Win10!

... with possible the exception of the recent blacklisting of multiple OpenCL driver setups as per the fairly long thread on that ;)

This is a link to a forked copy of fahcontrol with fixxed dependency.

https://github.com/cdberkstresser/fah-control/releases
Works fine for me. No extra packages neccessary.
