Hello. I am a new user of Manjaro Linux and I ran into a problem today. I am running a notebook with Nvidia Optimus system which is like a magnet for problems. It never works right. Even on Windows. My problem is that I tried to install the hybrid Bumblebee driver but it does not work at all. I have been searching many forums but nothing worked.
When I run nvidia-settings in bash it says:
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system
And when I run lspci -v it says:
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM108M [GeForce 940MX] (rev ff) (prog-if ff)
!!! Unknown header type 7f
Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
I think it has something to do with the open source nouveau driver. Should I blacklist it? I have added a new conf file to modprobe.d folder with blacklist command so I think it should be blacklisted or is there anything more to do?
Device: Acer Aspire A525-51G-51MN
CPU: Intel Core i5-7200U
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 940MX
OS: Manjaro Deepin ver. 18.0.4
I tried to reinstall whole OS and select non-free drivers during instalation but it is still the same.
