  • Have you followed the Wiki “bumblebee for nvidia optimus” guide? Resolved my issues on ASUS P751JF (Intel / NVIDIA GM108M). Sorry for missing link, but the forum would mark it as spam for some mysterious reason.

    By the way: how on earth do you guys help each other, being unable to post links???

    This is caused only for very new users by antispam system…

    Yep, I expected so. :) Thanks anyway for clarification.

    BTW: the guide I mentioned drove me to Antergos. After hassle-free working on my laptop for over two years, I suddenly happened to need full graphics performance , to the JavaFX project I’m working on. Being unable to get the secondary Nvidia to work on Manjaro, I took a tour through several Linux distributions. My graphics only worked on Ubuntu 16.04 based Mint (OUTB with proprietary drivers), and on Antergos / bumblebee (much better performance).

    yes, I have done the steps that indicated me the wiki and this is what I have obtained. After probe to uninstall noveau but I did not obtain result.

  • you can also try out nvidia-installer to automatic install bumblebee:

    If you missed something on the installation this nice program may fix it, you can try to press: [Ctrl+Alt+F3] after booting stops on the screen you show on top, to get to login to TTY3, if this does not work:

    https://antergos.com/wiki/miscellaneous/howto-boot-without-graphical-environment/

    sudo pacman -S nvidia-installer 
    nvidia-installer -t -b
    

    to test the installation, and for real installation:
    sudo nvidia-installer -b

  • @joekamprad when I enter this command:

    sudo nvidia-installer -b
    

    it tells me that the dependencies of “nvidia-lts” could not be solved and the installation stops

  • yes: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/7755/nvidia-lts-update-missing-dependency
    i do not know that you where using LTS… then nvidia-installe ris useless at the moment for you…
    Only if you will use nvidia + linux and uninstall linux-LTS

    I do not use the LTS kernel right now

  • but you have it installed…

  • @joekamprad said in bumblebee NVIDIA error:

    but you have it installed…

    the question is that I did not check the installer to install the LTS kernel. How do I uninstall it from the software center?

  • what gives:

    uname -a
    
  • @joekamprad said in bumblebee NVIDIA error:

    what gives:

    uname -a
    

    4.12.8-2-ARCH

  • kernel packages are called linux and linux-lts + header packages: linux-headers linux-lts-headers
    installing standard kernel

    sudo pacman -S linux linux-headers
    

    uninstalling lts kernel:

    sudo pacman -R linux-lts
    

    and do not forget to rewrite the images:

    sudo mkinitcpio -p linux
    

    and update grub.cfg:

    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

    @joekamprad said in bumblebee NVIDIA error:

    what gives:

    uname -a
    

    4.12.8-2-ARCH

    that says normal kernel is running…

  • you can check if linux-lts is installed:

    pacman -Qs linux-lts
    
  • @joekamprad

    @joekamprad said in bumblebee NVIDIA error:

    you can check if linux-lts is installed:

    pacman -Qs linux-lts
    

    I followed the previous steps and everything seems to have been done correcatemte but this last command does not show anything

  • what steps do you run?
