Hello @adminGodChryz,

Go to manjaro settings remove all the nvidia-drivers and install the 440-driver-bumblebee.

Then enable the bumblebee service.
sudo systemctl enable bumblebeed.service
Add your username to the group
sudo gpasswd -a user bumblebee (user= your username)

And if you want to run nvidia-settings then you will use optirun
optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8

thankyou so much, seams like prime dont works for a novice like me,
Thank you again!
