I think there is something not proper yet with NVIDIA drivers. I tried to install
nfancurve from the AUR, and it tries to replace the video drivers because it needs
nvidia-settings wich is, I think, actually provided within
nvidia-utils maybe their is an oversight and
nvidia-settings needs to be added to the packages provided by
nvidia-utils or maybe there is something wrong on my side and/or I’m confused about the nvidia packages names. From my understanding
nvidia-settings provides the Nvidia control panel, that I currently can open from terminal with command
nvidia-settings so I assume it is provided with package
nvidia-utils already on my machine.

It should install and work properly in theory because I should have nvidia-settings installed already and it shouldn’t try to find an alternative for the missing dependency nvidia-settings.
