GPU/IGP, nvidia/intel

you've installed optimus yet ?

yes i try it, but cant add bbswitch in XFCE by trizen.
Also i think optimus-manager eat more battery than bumblebee. Dont understand why.

yes because we have to do some more procedures. first we need to check 'systemctl status optimus-manager' and 'systemctl status bumblebeed.service'. post the output and then we can go further with activating the optimus.

optimus-manager.service - Optimus Manager Commands Daemon
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/optimus-manager.service; enabled; ve>
Active: inactive (dead)
start it maybe>?

wait, we have to do some steps now in the right order:
open a terminal and do the following steps in this order:
'sudo systemctl disable bumblebeed.service'
'sudo systemctl enable optimus-manager'
'sudo systemctl start optimus-manager'
'sudo optimus-manager --set-startup intel'
after this is finished do a reboot and after this intel is active and nvidia is down.

Done. before I go to reboot also one question

Steps 3 and 4 dont needed?

step 4 is needed to set the parameter that assigns the working mode to intel. if step 4 occurs a error message use step 3 to start the service before changing the parameter.

please check 'optimus-manager --print-mode' after reboot to be sure that the right mode is active.

As u see i dont have nvidia.conf. Do nothing ?

if the output is "intel" everything is fine and no further action required.

Intel yep. I test battery life after full charged. Because coolers go little bit fast, than in bumblebee

the fancontrol on laptops is a separate problem, but first you don't need to worry. can you post the output of 'inxi -Fxz' to get an overview what type of laptop you owe.

Any problem with power manager?

okay, you need to activate the aur-repository in your software-center. there will be a package called "nbfc". i would recommend this program called notebook-fan-control to assign to your laptop. if you activated this aur-repository and installed the package nbfc we can go further

powermanagement at laptops is always a pain. but nvidia is disconnected and your internal graphic card is running. nothing to worry about this.
