I’m installing Antergos on a Dell Inspirion laptop with a GTX 960M graphics card.
When installing, I selected “install nonfree nvidia drivers” on the installation menu. But, when I first started the laptop up, I couldn’t get to the lightdm login screen (my screen was just black, with a movable cursor).
Installing mesa-libgl over nvidia-libgl seemed to fix the problem, and i could get into the Cinnamon desktop. But now the problem is the whole desktop is very laggy, and extremely choppy.
I’d like to be using the nvidia proprietary drivers, but installing nvidia-libgl is out of the question, as I can’t even get it to the login screen. And using mesa causes the desktop to be slow and choppy.
So how do I fix this?
EDIT: I’ve tried installing intel-ucode (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Microcode) , and updating grub, but nothing. I still get a black screen with nvidia-libgl installed instead of mesa-libgl
