My Graphics adapter is an "nVidia GM107GLM [Quadro M1200 Mobile]".

Seems you're missing the x11-video-nvidiaG04 package needed for X11
support. Wayland is currently not supported yet with NVIDIA proprietary
(in the works still).

Maybe there's a misunderstanding? At least X11 is working fine for me. I only
issues with the virtual terminals. E.g. switching to VT1 (CTRL-ALT-F1) gives
me a
blank external display. Only the int. displays shows VT1.

But if I understood Andrei correctly, the proprietary nvidia driver simply
offer the feature I would like to have.

Well, question is if you really want to install parts of the proprietary
NVIDIA driver, but excluding its X11 driver. Apparently you're now using some
fallback X11 driver like fbdev or even vesa and then mixing it with NVIDIA's
libGL. Not sure, if this is what you really want ...

I would suggest to install x11-video-nvidiaG04 in addition first.
