I just installed Manjaro KDE, but I am having some trouble with the GPU drivers. I have a laptop with integrated Intel graphics card, as well as a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. When installing, I had to boot the installation drive with the free drivers, otherwise the installation pen would not boot. However, with the free drivers the installation went smoothly and it works great… as far as I do not need to use the dedicated graphics card . To solve this, I first tried to go into the Settings and then go to the Hardware Configuration tab, to see if I could find the nvidia drivers. Unfortunately, clicking in the Hardware Configuration tab, brings the System Settings to a freeze.
Then I decided to use the arch wiki, in order to try and install optimus, when I stumbled upon the optimus-manager package on AUR. So, I did as the package repro on GitHub told, and installed the nvidia drivers through pacman (choosing the right 419 kernel version). However, now when using the optimus-manager to switch to nvidia GPU, the computer freezes .
Can anyone please help me to get the nvidia drivers to work? I do not mind completely disabling the integrated GPU.
lspsi command yields no result, it just appears to be running ad eternum.
