Hello Antergos community!
I installed Antergos today and I’m very happy with it so far.
The only thing that I haven’t been able to do is install the appropriate driver for my GPU.
I have one of the dreaded nVidia Optimus systems; which means I have both an Intel HD integrated graphics card and an nVidia GPU in my laptop.
I really only want to use the nVidia graphics card as battery life is not an issue for me.
The problem I’m having is that every guide thus far has gotten me stuck on the dev bla bla clean screen.
There’s just that line and the blinking cursor.
Some guides lead to a very loudly spinning fan, others just don’t do anything.
I have managed to get this GPU working with other distros almost a year ago.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might solve this problem?
I installed nvidia, nvidia-utils and bumblebee(maybe more).
If you want to know your exact problem run:
optirun -vv glxgears
With glxgears installed, of course, and it will show you what your exact error message is.
Mine brought me to my solution.
The steps I followed were these:
In /et/cmkinitcpio.conf change the MODULES var to:
mkinitcpio -p linux
In /etc/default/grub add
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub.cfg
In /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf under optirun change the bridge method
In /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia set the BusID to
And it should solve the problem!
I hope this helps : ).
