          I hope VRR can be made to work for windowed games also, and it be nice if they found a way to allow multi monitor support, it works so damn well under Windows and the VRR functionality and ease of use under Linux is a mere shadow of that.

            Use the run file from nvidia site, it is easy to remove the nvidia driver with one command, you can use whatever version of the nvidia driver and patching for new kernels is simpler. Removing and using many Debian packages are more problematic.

              So far no issues with it.

                Is it possible to make a fresh installation of some modern distros like the newest ubuntu18.10 or fedora29 with 1660ti.
                I failed to do that with fedora 29, any advice?

                  You can try my distribution, it has no nvidia drivers and uses the Vesa driver. Install the nvidia driver manually as documented.

                    Thanks for replying.
                    I finally managed to do that. There is something wrong with fedora workstation version. The graphical installer won't start. Then I tried the LXDE spin. It's OK. After finishing the installation including the nvidia binary driver, I had to switch back to GDM to avoid the black login screen failure.
