    Thanks, that looks good, but strange it didn’t work.

  • https://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gtx-950m

    is a optimus card…

    but make it sure with the output of this command:

    lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030[02]]'

    geforce-gtx-950m is not listed in the known working cards inside Antergos bumblebee wiki entry…

    Without a full bootlog journalctl -b -0 or pastbin it:
    journalctl -b -0 | curl -F [email protected] https://ptpb.pw/?u=1 and give the link here it will give out after processing the command.
    I can not see what exactly is going wrong.

    journalctl -b -1

  • @konstantinova
    I suppose the journal is when you have only Intel graphics driver installed.

    Can you provide journal and xorg log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) after you have installed nvidia drivers and bumblebee and rebooted?

    You probably need to use console, like Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get to the console.

    I’ve tried to install bumblebee only for 4.20.6-arch1-1-ARCH. thats why I’ve send previous boot(4.20.6-arch1-1-ARCH) not current (using lts kernel)
    I also can’t switch to console while trying to boot with main kernel Ctrl-Alt-F2/F3/F4/F5/F6 doesn’t work (have to turn off laptop using power button)
    If I install nvidia-lts bbswitch-dkms, I won’t be able to boot with lts kernel too.

  • Errors from my first post were because I forgot to add nvidia-lts during bumblebee installation. As @joekamprad mentioned. And booted with lts kernel, no wonder there were errors. I was dumb. Now the problem is that I can’t boot if I install bumblebee.

  • My advice is, make a clean installation and try this:

    • Install the last avaliable version of nvidia drivers (Don’t reboot yet).
    • Install the package optimus-manager (or Take it from github)
    • Follow the steps described in “installation” and “usage

    And thats it, after you reboot your computer everything should be working fine. See more.

  • Out of curiosity, can you just use Prime?

    My wife’s laptop is an older gaming laptop with hybrid graphics… Intel Sandy Bridge & a GeForce 920M. I installed the NVidia proprietary graphics driver, and using the NVidia control panel, set it to use the Intel graphics as default. Then for anything I want to run using the NVidia graphics, I just edited the launcher to invoke it with “PRIME_RUN=1 %command%” (that’s the Steam-specific edit you’d need to make… Lutris actually has a checkbox in the launcher settings to use Prime, and is easier to configure in that respect). While the laptop absolutely supports bumblebee as a launcher, and I have actually used bumblebee on it, I found that Prime was much less headache to get working and was a set it & forget it method.
