@just, Thanks, I managed to install and set up bumblebee using arch guide. I was really busy lately and I haven’t had the time to continue my experiment with switching to Antergos. A few days ago I returned to my Antergos installation. I managed to install bumblebee and it is working but I am having trouble with external monitors. I asked the question on Lenovo forum https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/P50-P70-linux-experiences/m-p/3560935#M9026 and I got help but I am still having issues with external screens.
So my question is, How to make external screens work on laptop where all outputs are wired to nvidia card?
If somebody is interested, in the same post, there are results of unigine heaven benchmark tried on windows 10, ubuntu with prime and antergos with bumblebee.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
I have been using Ubuntu for last couple of years and I am not particularly happy with the direction of that distro, so I decided to try something else. Antergos looked like a perfect choice for me. But, since I am using my system for work, I decided to try Antergos on external USB drive and when I managed to set up everything I need, only then to replace Ubuntu on my main disk.
First problem is nvidia driver. I been using the following setup from the day I got the machine:
- Hybrid graphics in BIOS
- Prime profiles inside nvidia x server settings
This worked pretty good. When I am using VMs, I switch to nVidia, and when I just browse the Internet or work with text files, I switch to intel. This was very easy to set in Ubuntu.
I know what nvidia optimus is, what is bumblebee, I have read various wikis on how to install this, but without success. I have reinstalled Antergos 10+ times.
I really would need help in form: “Install a by running …”, then “run …” etc, rather than “go here and read this” because I have read pretty much everything on the topic and I have tried a lot of things.
The rest of relevant info:
iGPU: Intel P530
dGPU: Nvidia Quadro m2000m
Screen resolution: 3840x2160

Thank you very much,
