CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7300HQ CPU @ 2.50GHz
GPU: GP106M [GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile] (nVidia Corporation)
GPU driver: video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime
Desktop Environment: KDE
First my story: tried to connect my via TV via my receiver ... that worked at the beginning at a break of a 1h I wanted to continue but it wasn't possible to establish the connection again even after several restarts... while I tried to solve the problem I found out via the
hardwareconfiguration window there are new drive versions so I tried them...
Finally I used the automatic setup and it installed me the
440xx-prime and I noticed by reading online that offloading is possible.
Previously, I used (I am not sure but I think)
optimus-manager-qt to switch between the graphic cards. That worked pretty good but also was pretty annoying over the time.
So if I could get it to work so I don't have to logout and login again would be great...
I need 2 things.
- Use nvidia for specific programs, primary steam
- Use external Monitors (Thunderbolt AND HDMI) (was only possible in nvidia mode before)
When I try to start steam I get the following:
prime-run steam Manjaro steam native configuration found! Running Steam on manjarolinux 19.0.2 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is disabled by the user /home/yo/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1585264767)
I am testing it with
seven days to die its the main game I want to play now and that already worked pretty good. There I let me show the fps to determine if its using intel or nvidia, but it's also possible to here it, without nvidia its not extrem noisy....
