I’m currently having some issues with Compton after I updated my system on 02/24. It stopped working altogether after I logged in into my laptop (Acer Aspire E5-575G-53VG) the next day. If I run ‘compton’ on my terminal, w/ or w/o flags, the output is always the same:
Furthermore, ‘glxinfo | grep OpenGL’ outputs the following:
Also, ‘glxgears -info’, ‘primusrun glxgears’ and ‘optirun -b primus glxgears’ all output the following:
My Xorg.0.log file is here.
‘inxi -Gx’ output:
My bumblebee.conf looks like this: (Must add that under /etc/bumblebee/ multiple bumblebee.conf.pacsave, xorg.conf.nouveau.pacsave and xorg.conf.nvidia.pacsave files appear)

My xorg.conf.nvidia file:
I’m currenty using Nvidia proprietary drivers which I installed with the following command: [quote]mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300[/quote]
I’ve been trying to solve this issue with both closed and open drivers with no success whatsoever. I’ve also tried multiple solutions found on this forum and Arch forums, similar or exactly like mine, but I haven’t been able to solve this issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
