Using MHWD to auto-install proprietary drivers for my laptop with intel/nvidia gpus ends up with the nvidia driver not working properly (looks really laggy, also literally no config options in nvidia settings, I don't know if that's a major issue though)
So I tried to follow the nvidia drivers installation instructions on Arch Wiki, I installed the
nvidia-prime packages, and rebooted.
But according to
inxi I'm using the nouveau driver? When I try to run something on the nvidia gpu using nouveau, (command:
prime-run) I get:
Error: GLX: Failed to create context: GLXBadFBConfig
I'm not sure but maybe MHWD works, but needs configuration of X11?
Nothing I've tried seems to work - also
nvidia-xconfig just makes me unable to start X.

My laptop is the Dell Inspiron 17 3793, I'm using Manjaro KDE.
I play games and not being able to have my more powerful gpu working is a real annoyance, so if you can help that'd be great
