I also have an Asus gaming laptop with an Nvidia Geforce graphic card, 
and use Kubuntu without problem, with either the proprietary Nvidia 
driver or the Xorg driver.

Maybe you could try installing Kubuntu and then installing the Ubuntu 
Studio Desktop?

That works fine for me. HTH.

With all best wishes,
