• \[SOLVED\] Gnome running with Gallium 0.4


    Hello Antergos community!

    After installing bumblebee and working hard to get my nVidia GPU working, I am faced with a slight problem.
    I’ve confirmed that my nVidia GPU works with:

    optirun -vv glxgears
    

    However, the Gnome 3 shell is using Gallium 0.4 to render its graphics and I’m finding this very slow.
    Is there a way to change this to use my nVidia driver or something else that’s faster?

    Kindest regards!


    EDIT: SOLVED!

    To solve this problem I just installed xf86-video-intel again and it gave me animations again.
    I’m happy with this so I’m marking it as solved.
    One additional step I took was to install intel-dri; but I don’t think that had any effect.

    Hopefully this is helpful to someone : )
