Hello! I’m trying to replace my Kubuntu installation with a Manjaro system. I’m currently stuck with the proper configuration I need with nVidia proprietary drivers. I need a configuration using the nVidia GPU alone, without the Intel GPU and without any offloading with PRIME.
It was incredibly simple to do this in Kubuntu: the nvidia-settings application had a specific tab for selecting one of these three options (Intel only, nVidia only, PRIME). I’m a little surprised to see that the same application (and same version) does not include that tab. I think it is currently using PRIME by default. I tried many ways to disable and only use nVidia, but no way worked. In particular, I guess the reference point is this:
where I see that I should use the command:
xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set "PRIME Synchronization" 0 #replace HDMI-0 with your xrandr output ID
so I used:
xrandr --output eDP1 --set "PRIME Synchronization" 0
but I got:
X Error of failed request: BadName (named color or font does not exist) Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR) Minor opcode of failed request: 11 (RRQueryOutputProperty) Serial number of failed request: 41 Current serial number in output stream: 41
So, any idea why the choice is missing in nvidia-settings? Any idea what the error means? Anyone who can provide info on how to go with nVidia only?
