As someone who uses Antergos on a laptop with 2 GPUs (Intel and NVIDIA) I pretty much know the current situation. Unfortunately only *buntu-distros bring easy tools for switching between GPUs, so that you can use your Intel GPU for light surfing and switch with a relog or restart to your NVIDIA GPU if you want to game or do something that needs GPU power. There are alternatives like Bumblebee, however they do not suit me due to several reasons. More information on that in the repo: https://github.com/konstantingoretzki/AntergosPrime
AntergosPrime tries to solve this problem and lets you easily switch GPUs from the terminal with “sudo prime-select intel” and “sudo prime-select nvidia”.
The script collection branch is a fork of emanuellopes’s archLinuxPrime which got optimized for the Antergos distribution. Emanuellopes forked for his repo the prime application that comes on Linux Mint.
The main work of this script goes to Emanuellopes and the Linux-Mint-team, I just optimized on some paths, updated package names, added how to fix the tearing for the Nvidia-GPU and put everything well described together, so that even people with less bash skills can (hopefully) easily follow on how to install and use AntergosPrime.
Currently this script only works with the display manager SDDM and NOT with Antergos’s default display manager LightDM. However switching is easy, so it should be not a big deal to switch your display manager. The prime-indicator does also not work - currently function goes before accessibility ;)
I hope this collection helps others as much as it helped myself.
