Don't have the option too install proprietary drivers/ Manjaro doesnt seem to be detecting my GPU right

After a reinstall of Manjaro I didnt have the option anymore to install proprietary drivers and I think the problem is that its not detecting my GPU properly, but I have no clue what to do.
I have tried switching Kernels but its the same.
Screenshot of what my Hardware Configuration looks like:

Im running a Nvidia RTX 2060 Super with a Ryzen 5 3600 and 16gb ram.

Edit: Apparently there’s a conflict with my GPU Screenshot_20210325_205113

Hi @Kyoto, and welcome!

I know this is an update anouncement, but the nvidia part might have relevant information:

Hope this helps!

Hello @Kyoto :wink:

If i check the vendor id at the local database:

 cat /var/lib/mhwd/ids/pci/nvidia.ids | grep 10de

Then it is not there. And therefore it is not listed there.

I would rather suggest to install the dkms package:

pamac install nvidia-dkms

Additionally add these configs:

sudo echo -e "blacklist nouveau\nblacklist ttm\nblacklist drm_kms_helper\nblacklist drm" > /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf
sudo echo -e "nvidia\nnvidia-drm" > /etc/modules-load.d/nvida.conf
sudo nvidia-xconfig

And it is done.

Not confirmed, but I would say this hardware detection tool is in 99% of all use cases made for nvidia proprietary driver. An it is the only reason in my case. I believe in the future it will abandoned.
