Been on this for days now and almost ready to give up. One last attempt is to register here and ask for guidance or I´ll have to go back to Ubuntu
Hardware: - Acer Aspire V Nitro 571G ( Core i5 4210u, 8 GB, Nvidia 840m (optimus) )
I install Antergos x64 with Gnome and it installs just fine (even with LUKS) and boots up into Desktop.
So far so perfect. Now I want to install the proprietary drivers for my Nvidia 840m.
I tried several ways (guides followed from Arch wiki). Just installing nvidia package and run nvidia-config and also the version where I install bumblebee.
Whatever I do I end up with this “error message”, which by the way also shows before installing Nvidia but it still boots up without Nvidia.
i2c_hid i2c-SYN1B7F:01: failed to retrieve report from device
I know it has something to do with the synaptics touchpad (wich works just fine after installation). So I found hints to blacklist i2c-hid. If I do this the touchpad is not working at all. Installing synpatics xf86 also does not help.
If I blacklist this the error is gone but then system still just hangs and does not load to Desktop once Nvidia is installed.
I am really at a loss here. Just want my Laptop to run Antergos and also use my Nvidia to its fullest (games on the one hand and power saving considerations)
Please any advice is welcome!
