When I turn on my notebook the login screen is only visible on the laptop display but not on the external screen I use via HDMI. After logging in external screen is working properly.
Now I’ve messed around installing and using Optimus manager which I regret now. After the command
sudo systemctl disable optimus-manager I quit the application and uninstalled it.
The other problem is if I close my laptop lid the whole desktop session becomes unusably slow and sluggish. I get a notification from KWin that some effects has been disabled and after restarting it with Shift + Alt + F12 the desktop becomes slow as I described. Oddly when I open the lid and the laptop screen turns on, everthing turns back to normal and I can use the machine normaly.
Any help on either problems would be much appreciated!
EDIT.: Restarting KWin doesn’t seem to matter at all, laptop lid open everthing runs smoothly, closed it is a diseaster.
So after I found out that this is most likely to do with the GPU drivers I tried pressing the auto install drivers (both open source and proprietary). This threw me an error saying a conflict with optimus driver (as it wanted to install something called bumblebee) so after looking up how to remove a driver (hwid - -pci driver-name) and removed them, i went ahead with the auto install which worked. Then I rebooted and now the system doesn’t seem to boot, i just get a blank screen with the msi logo after grub exists.
How could I fix this?
