Just upgraded to LINXU MINT 20.2 UMA XCFE, and OBS won't record, claims it couldn't open my NVIDIA encoder, and to check my drivers. I did check, and my drivers are up to date. Anyone else having this issue? Did you find a solution? here is my log file.

Loading up OpenGL on adapter Intel Open Source Technology Center Mesa DRI Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 (HSW GT2)

Looks like your current desktop session is loaded on the intel integrated GPU and not your NVIDIA. You need to check how to tell Linux to switch to yout NVIDIA card instead.

P.S. Your log does not seem to contain an attempt to encode with NVENC.
