Prime-run doesn't exist

I've recently installed Nvidia-prime for running game, and i can't use the command prime-run

ZSH said : zsh: command not found: prime-run


Someone can help me pls

thx in advance


The screenshot you posted is showing you installed video-nvidia-440xx and the prime-run doesn't exist with that driver.
If you want to use prime-run install the video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime.

i've tried the oser one, the command exist but a bug continue to run : image


Did you reboot your system after switching the driver?
Please provide from terminal, as text
inxi -Fxxxza --no-host
mhwd -li
cat /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf
Use ``` above and bellow the text for proper formatting.

my graphix card is in the second device and i don't know how to use it :blush:

I honestly don't know if the /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf should be empty or not ... but now is empty.

Like i said, running with the command:
prime-run firefox
or whatever application you want to use the dGPU, but if is failing in your case, then i guess something is off ...
Please consult this how to, as i guess will give you the best options for what i think you are looking for
