Optimus Installation


I just installed Manjaro 20.1_RC4 KDE.
My machine has intel+nvidia GT 540M setup.

I would like to install Optimus, but I don’t know how to install it.

Do I have to install bumblebee?


For Optimus you need bumblebee or primus (if your GPU is supported) drivers. Go with this tutorial.


If you are running the 440 nvidia driver then you have prime-run by default. You can configure steam and lutris to launch games with prime-run which will use your dedicated gpu rather than internal. There’s a really good guide by Jonathan on prime and a guide to setup optimus if you want it on the old forum


Which Switching method should I use in optimus-manager-qt Nouveau or Bbswitch?
