Unable to use a second screen in Hp Pavilion Power Laptop 15

Hi, I'm new in this linux world, I was trying to configure the nvidia drivers for my laptop, I use a second screen which uses the nvidia graphic card, but I can't find any solution, the closes one was using this:

sudo optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8

which starts NVIDIA server settings, then the second screen detects an input, but doesn't shoew anything (black screen), and the terminal gives me this

(nvidia-settings:12251): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 20:22:03.361: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

welcome to the forum, i usually try to avoid bumblebee troubleshooting because i like to make an honest attempt at keeping my sanity. :sweat_smile:


it's old and more of a pain in the arse than it's worth. you can look through the never ending list of previously created threads on the subject if you'd like. or you can go with another optimus setup that performs better and less problematic.

i usually suggest optimus-switch or prime. theres links to each on that thread and how to set them up
