Switch from bumblebee to hybrid prime

I know this update happened a long time ago but can anyone tell me how to safely switch from video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-430xx-bumblebee to video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime as a driver using mhwd? I was having difficulty finding it on manjaro wiki.

If you want to be extra safe you can do this:

  1. sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target
  2. reboot, then log in
  3. uninstall the old one: sudo mhwd -r pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-430xx-bumblebee
  4. install video-modesetting: sudo mhwd -i pci video-modesetting
  5. install the hybrid config: sudo mhwd -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime
  6. sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target
  7. reboot

Found solution here _forum.manjaro.org/t/selecting-or-installing-mhwd-driver-profile-blocked-by-package/13258.

(can’t post links yet, sorry)
