Updating/upgrading Intel graphics with NVidia

@Modisc OK, very good. The hardware configuration is clear.

You have the best videocard that exist for Linux - an Nvidia-Optimus hybrid one.

You have not installed the best tool to control it - the Bumblebee.

As you can see, mine card is exactly as your one - the GeForce GT 750M.

I have no problem to play any game on Steam. Though I don’t have Metro 2033 Redux, which you’re trying to run, my Metro Last Light, Serious Sam 3, other heavy OpenGl stuff is smooth as silk.

Your best bet is to install Bumblebee with native Nvidia drivers.

At all costs try to avoid using open source nouveau drivers for any Nvidia-Optimus card.

Unfortunately, the software configuration is not so clear. Due to chaotical installatin of various drivers and packages - as from OP.

There’s a guide for installing Bumblebee on Arch. It’s here.

It was written mainly for a “normal”, default Arch installation, with only Intel video driver (xf86-video-intel package) installed. Anyhow, try to read it carefully and to follow it very thoroughly. Don’t skip any single step. Especially those numerous preliminary checks, aimed to ensure the correct Bumblebee installation.

If all checks from the guide will return the expected results, chances are that you’ll be able to install Bumblebee. To enjoy the full Nvidia-Optimus power.

Good luck.

What is Antergos Exactly ?

@Wyn said:

I use Antergos because I find “The Arch Way” pointless. I’d rather automate the process then do it manually whenever I want to set up a system. When setting up a new vm all I need to do on Antergos is feed the installer a package list, boom done. Saying Ubuntu is Antergos is just wrong, there’s no similarity. Ubuntu/Debian may be stable but they aren’t up to date.

same people say Manjaro is more stable than arch

Manjaro does not use Arch repo’s which is a delayed update. If a security update comes out I would want it asap. When they posted a news announcement for moving back the clock due to ssl it showed me how they care about security.

How do you use your Antergos installation?

I use my installation for development. Works like a charm with my 3x27" (5760x1080). I mostly code python and/or webrelated (such as html, css, etc). From a developer perspective I find it much faster for me to navigate trough bash-terminal rather than on a Windows installation trough PowerShell.

My choise is purely up to me and I like the way Antergos (ArchLinux) is a rolling release, no need to reinstall for a new major release to not lack behind in terms of packages trough repositorys. In ArchLinux I can be sure to always get the latest and greatest for my development tools.

Code is 99% written in SublimeText 3, which is the only none-opensource software I use as my daily driver. If I’d find a similar program, that is opensource and close to ST3 in terms of power and flexibility, I’d change to it. OpenSource is a big part of my business and I promote it even for my customers.

Chromium Downloads and Installs Proprietary Software Without Your Knowledge

Most satisfied to see this @Wyn :thumbsup:
"Unfortunately, it took the public calling Google out on the situation to make the change. It did, saying this:

“A binary blob module like this can not be installed by a user via clicking on a link. Such a Native Client module can only be installed by the user deliberately from the Chrome Web Store. Chromium is open source and it’s important to us, as is it is to you, that it doesn’t ship with closed-source components, lazily or not.”.
Which was exactly I made a post in here. Publicity…:smile:

Отлючить эффект при прокручивании списка

скроллбар у меня вообще странный в Firefox, если прокручивать очень долго ленту новостей, то бегунок на скроллбаре не становиться очень при очень тонким как это было и есть везде. Он становиться примерно в два раза меньше обычного размера. Может такое не только в firefox, но в фм такое проверить не смогу)

Polska społeczność Antergos

Konfigurator Nvidia zaproponował mi sterownik 340,76 jednak gdy go instaluje na Anergosie to system nie uruchamia się. Dlatego wróciłem teraz na ubuntu. Troche irytowało mnie też to, że niemogę w szybki sposób jak na ubuntu instalować niektórych aplikacji, tylko trzeba je kompilować a przy tym ciągle pojawiały się jakieś błędy. Dzięki za pomoc ale posiedze jeszcze na ubuntu.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie.
