I have been using Ubuntu for last couple of years and I am not particularly happy with the direction of that distro, so I decided to try something else. Antergos looked like a perfect choice for me. But, since I am using my system for work, I decided to try Antergos on external USB drive and when I managed to set up everything I need, only then to replace Ubuntu on my main disk.
First problem is nvidia driver. I been using the following setup from the day I got the machine:
- Hybrid graphics in BIOS
- Prime profiles inside nvidia x server settings
This worked pretty good. When I am using VMs, I switch to nVidia, and when I just browse the Internet or work with text files, I switch to intel. This was very easy to set in Ubuntu.
I know what nvidia optimus is, what is bumblebee, I have read various wikis on how to install this, but without success. I have reinstalled Antergos 10+ times.
I really would need help in form: “Install a by running …”, then “run …” etc, rather than “go here and read this” because I have read pretty much everything on the topic and I have tried a lot of things.
The rest of relevant info:
iGPU: Intel P530
dGPU: Nvidia Quadro m2000m
Screen resolution: 3840x2160
Sorry for my English, I am (obviously) not a native speaker.
Thank you very much,
