I noticed that Manjaro always installs Bumblebee as default for graphics. But that makes it incompatible with External Monitors at least my experience. One Reason of switching to Manjaro was that External Monitors and Dual Graphics in Ubuntu were a Pain always had to use Nvidia proprietary Driver and even then only 1 external Monitor worked after Tweaking a lot.
Is there any way to handle that in Manjaro? Since Bumblebee is installed now no external Monitor is detected.
My Setup where I want Manjaro to work is:
I have one external Monitor connected via DVI D and one other connected via VGA, plus the Display of my Laptop. I have the Integrated Intel Graphics and a dedicated Nvidia Card.
I also take the Laptop with me for Work often, so Battery Life on the go is just as important as the external Monitors too work. Bumblebee has the great battery life while Nvidia Driver offered at least partially Multi Monitors, but crappy Battery Life. A Dream would be Bumblebee working properly and still be able to use External Monitors.
Does anyone has a similar Setup and knows how to get it to work? Or any Idea how?
I read the multi monitor Page on the Arch Wiki and 2 older sources where someone got it to work in Ubuntu before, but seems not to work anymore.
