Manjaro awesome freezes on logout / shutdown

Hi everyone !
I searched for this on google but I didn't find anything that worked for me. When I try to shutdown manjaro through GUI or terminal, it just freezes and stays like that. Any ideas ?
ps: sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.

nouveau, it's always nouveau.

did you install with the free drivers on purpose, or because the nonfree drivers would not boot?

I didn't install anything on purpose, I just added nouveau.modeset=0 because I saw that in some other post and I though that would maybe work

if you auto-install the proprietary drivers on that laptop you'll get bumblebee because it's an optimus laptop, it's a roll of the dice if it will actually work or leave you with a black screen.

nouveau, which are the nvidia open source drivers that work ok on much older hardware but on newer hardware cause a lot of problems.

this describes different optimus solutions you have available, i definitely dont recommend bumblebee. optimus-switch and prime both work well

if you go with optimus-switch, this is the version you would use, meant to work with lightdm. it's what i use on my optimus awesome-wm laptop

@linesma made this that's meant to work with optimus-switch (you would set it up after)

So I should run this install script and then run to get both nvidia and intel ?

you want to get rid of video-linux first. your hardware bus id's already match the defaults set in optimus switch so this would be the express way to go without having to read my messy instructions on the readme

run these commands 1 at a time, if any command fails (they shouldn't), stop and post the output of that command.

sudo mhwd -r pci video-linux
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-430xx

cd ~
sudo pacman -S linux419-headers dkms acpi_call-dkms xf86-video-intel git
git clone
cd ~/optimus-switch
chmod +x
sudo ./

once thats done, post these outputs and i'll let you know if it all looks good.

mhwd -li
ls -laR /etc/X11 ; cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf
ls -la /etc/modprobe.d ; cat /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf
ls -la /etc/modules-load.d ; cat /etc/modules-load.d/*.conf

On the first command, it tells me video-linux isn't installed

Continue with the rest of the posted commands, but before that, post this

mhwd -li

I can't show you the exact output because my pc freezes right after it runs the command but it tells some warnings about USBs

It tells me some command failed

Also it seems to be stuck now

Could not get the whole output before my PC froze, here's what I got

1575729726568244161012634618019 My PC unfroze for a sec, here's what I see now

Anyways it seems to work now. Thanks !

make sure your manjaro is up to date

sudo pacman -Syyu

and that you have headers installed for each kernel you have. if the output of mhwd-kernel -li shows that you have linux419 and linux53for example, make sure you have both of these installed


your welcome, glad it worked out. :+1:
