I tried blacklist noueveu it isnt worked too…

I cant use bios to change gpu cuz its locked bios…

I was using ubuntu with prime nvidia but in manjaro I cant handle the setup think

Im waiting for support…

Edit: Im looking for use nonfree drivers. No matter prime, bumblebeed

When I try to boot with nonfree drivers from live media its stuck at:
" Started TLP system startup/shutdown "

And When opening gdm, taking errors like this

Have you tried this Guide?

I cant understand 3.1 part. How can I remove and replace with it ? there is no write in optimus.conf

You don’t have this (you run the default settings) so just create a new file and edit as advised (hidden info? you missed it?)

remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-mhwd.conf

No sorry its my mistake. I mean how can I replace it.

Paste this into a file and save the file as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/optimus.conf :

Section "Module"
    Load "modesetting"

Section "Device"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Driver "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"

It needs sudo rights (sudo gedit in terminal)

I have done all of the guide…

And thats pufff its magicaly done :smile:

I was tried this before but I missed somethink I think… Thanks for everythink you have saved my life my friend…


You should thank the Tutorial author. I just pointed, not a big thing :smirk:
I hope sometime, Manjaro users will look up first at Manjaro Tutorials. :joy:

The big problem is there is too many tutorial about this and each one is diffrend so not new user friendly… We need a topic with list of (working) tutorials…

There is already one (kind-of) but is WIP. Actually it’s pinned at the top of Tutorials category.

I have done UEFI install by myself… There is no any guide to solved my problem :smile:
But thanks again I will research all of this guides now :eyeglasses:

After using PRIME : Really high performance on games but there is really low battery life and really highy temps… So I tried to install bumblebeed service, now everythink is okey :slight_smile:

I really suggest Bumblebee Drivers :lollipop:

This is the price to “pay” for performance :wink:

Whatever works is good!
