please help

how can i install dkms acpi_call

I can't even try all the methods

What is it with people installing dkms drivers that are already available for their kernels?

What kernel do you use?
Just install the right one for your kernel.

First of all, why are you installing the kernel headers for 5.3, when your clearly running the 5.4 kernel?

Second, just install the correct third party acpi-call module precompiled for your running kernel.

sudo pacman -S linux54-acpi_call

It will update with the kernel automatically this way, no need to fart around with dkms, and kernel headers, etc..

You need to restart your computer.

I gave it to him, but now when I go down or up the page, it makes lines like no video card installed, and it gets extremely hot

There you go trying to use dkms again.
I'm only going to say this one more time.
You ONLY need the linux54-acpi_call package.

sudo pacman -R linux54-headers dkms acpi_call-dkms git
sudo pacman -S linux54-acpi_call

Reboot

ok now i try

sudo pacman -R linux54-headers dkms acpi_call-dkms git
error: target not found: acpi_call-dkms

People reading Arch manuals then blindly appying to Manjaro.

now I restarted it and still does

Maybe we should remove these packages from our repositories then. We could always then add them to a separate repository that is used ONLY by our build server if they are needed for that purpose.

can you help me, how could i do this?

cd ~
sudo pacman -S linux53-headers dkms acpi_call-dkms xf86-video-intel git
git clone https://github.com/dglt1/optimus-switch-sddm.git
cd ~/optimus-switch-sddm
chmod +x install.sh
sudo ./install.sh

so write on github to apply and I applied as he writes

Sorry, I didn't see the error in the last thread you posted.
Looks like acpi_call-dkms was never installed:

==> dkms install acpi_call/1.1.0 -k 5.4.6-2-MANJARO
==> Unable to install module acpi_call/1.1.0 for kernel 5.3.18-1-MANJARO: Missing kernel modules tree.

The problem is it had alrady removed linux54-acpi_call.

Wow, what are you doing exactly?
I mean what is your end goal?

git clone https://github.com/dglt1/optimus-switch-sddm.git
cd ~/optimus-switch-sddm
chmod +x install.sh
sudo ./install.sh

This is typically not how we install software on Linux.

Are you using bumblebee or prime?
Bumblebee is depreciated in favor of Prime on Manjaro going forward, this is all handled by MHWD.
You only need two packages and mhwd will handle the rest:
mhwd-db (from the testing branch)
nvidia-prime

sudo pacman -U https://mirror.dacentec.com/manjaro/testing/core/x86_64/mhwd-db-0.6.4-6-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
sudo pacman -S nvidia-prime

I have seen others recommend you perform a bios update on your other help threads.

Have you updated your BIOS?

I believe there was a BIOS update released for your model yesterday.

I have also seen the nomodeset kernel boot parameter recommended for your laptop model.

I did, all the steps ..., but it didn't go well but after I changed CV and I don't know what to do
