Nvidia drivers, MOK not being prompted

About a year ago I bought a Dell XPS 15 with a Nvidia graphic card and installed Ubuntu 20.04. After I installed the propietary Nvidia drivers, I was prompted to enter a key for the MOK. I rebooted the computer, entered the key and was happy.

I can't change my built-in display's resolution under Settings -> Displays. I used to see a drop-down menu that allowed me to lower the resolution but it's gone since I reinstalled Ubuntu 22.04.

Switch primary card

When I installed Ubuntu 22.10 the primary card was the intel and then my Nvidia like this, but now the first card display in the About section is the Nvidia card:

And I can't launch the game Doom Eternal anymore.

How to reverse the order of these 2 cards and get Mesa In HD Graphics 630 first?

Thank you

Built in Camera in Dell C3422WE not recognized Ubuntu 22.04
aq flag

I have a Dell Monitor C3422WE with a built-in camera and microphone (for video calls).

I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04 with an Nvidia driver. The Nvidia card is connected to the monitor via DisplayPort.
The sound works great, but when I pop up the camera, it is not recognized. Running lsusb or lspci doesn't even show a video cam.

Any ideas?

Best way to see temperature/statistics of all components
ca flag

What is the best way to see the temperature and statistics (like fan speed) of all computer components. I'm using Ubuntu 22.04.1, have an RTX 3090. I can use nvidia-smi to get the GPU temp, and you could use lm-sensors to monitor the CPU temp. However, is there a single command I can run to get the temperature of all components? (and fanspeed as well could be helpful, but not as important).

Sometimes my Ubuntu 22.04 gets noticeably slower. I can see the cursor is moving slower, hovering over icons takes a second or two etc...

I checked all the possible causes that I can think of:

  1. CPU load is small

Black screen after installing cuda toolkit (22.04 x86_64)

I've tried installing cuda toolkit 11.8 from a fresh install of ubuntu 22.04 x86_64 from the three different methods. Each of these results in a black screen on boot which is almost certainly caused by a driver issue. I've tried reverting to a previous kernel, blacklisting nouveau and nvidiafb, and restarting, but I'm still confronted with a black screen. I'm running an RTX 3090 if that is of interest.
