Hello :slight_smile:

Im a Ubuntu user upgrading my pc with Manjaro :slight_smile:

After installing Manjaro I have installed Steam + Left 4 Dead 2 in order to check if the graphic card was correctly installed. I have download steam plus the game (L4D2) but when i start the game KDE closes the session and returns to the login screen.

ty @maycne.sonahoz doing

I think now its ok :slight_smile:

you have installed only hybrid driver bumblebee, so try to install also linux drivers with this command:
sudo mhwd -a pci free 0300
reboot and check with: mhwd -li

Hello again,

After install linux drivers and check if everything’s ok, problem continues ;(

After running the game (L4D2) on game’s 1st screen (cant do really nothing since game is still loading) KDE Session closes and returns to the lockscreen.
Any hint ?

yes post output from mhwd -li
