Cinnamon desktop nvidia not used & issue with resolution: <missing: xdpyinfo>


i installed recently manjaro these days ( i migrated from linux mint )

it’s a begginer friendly distro and everything goes smoothly at this moment except one thing…

as you can imagine i have the same problem than the others users with the famous driver of nvidia

i’m using the desktop environment cinnamon based on Lightdm so in this case what optimus program i have to use?

this one ? → GitHub - Askannz/optimus-manager: A Linux program to handle GPU switching on Optimus laptops.

or maybe this ? → GitHub - dglt1/optimus-switch: *installer finished* installs nvidia prime and makes switching to intel only and back again easy as one command. intel mode fully disables the nvidia gpu to extend battery life.

btw about the problem resolution: <missing: xdpyinfo> how i can fix it?

thank you so much

This is not really a problem. It means the xdpyinfo program is not installed, inxi cannot query the monitor resolutions. You can pacman -S xorg-xdpyinfo to install it.

Thanks for your fast reply

I will check it

Now what guide i have to follow if i want to install nvidia drivers on cinnamon?
