Month ago I bought new laptop.
I had some issues with install manjaro
# inxi -G Graphics: Device-1: Intel driver: i915 v: kernel Device-2: NVIDIA driver: N/A Display: server: X.Org 1.20.6 driver: modesetting resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel UHD Graphics (Comet Lake 3x8 GT2) v: 4.6 Mesa 19.3.1
So I decided switch to Nvidia Prime (just used only nvidia card)
Today I have some time for go deeper.
I returned bumblebee + nvidia + intel.
Screen still flickering.
Then I changed DRI from "true" to "2".
It is fallback option. Flickering became lower.
Next I google some options, which can help. Nothing from arch-wiki didn't help.
But then I searched on this forum and switch driver from Intel to modeset.
And everything began work!
Then I noticed that bumblebee became broke.
This is was bad news. I began looking some solution.
And as I understand, bumblebee not work with modeset driver.
Modeset doesn't support something.
Switching to Intel driver fixed it, but glitches returned.
Then I try search new solution.
I find optimus-manager
Guide: Install and configure optimus-manager for hybrid GPU setups (Intel/NVIDIA)
It is cool solution, but it need logout to switch videocard.
Hybrid mode working, but Nvidia card still consume power.
And there are my questions:
- Do Modeset driver really not work with bumblebee?
- Maybe do switch manjaro ISO to modeset driver out of the box?
To Intel modesetting driver be the default driver for intel GPU Gen4 and newer (GMA 3000 from 2006 and newer)
- How to run something on nvidia with optimus-manager ?
- How install bbswitch only for using from console?
I want run it from console without installing it from mhwd. Mhwd installing old nvidia-430 drivers
- Some one have any more advice?
