Driver from Bumblebee.
I found (and read) the
NVIDIA Optimus ArchLinux wiki (because yes, Manjaro is ArchLinux based).
But when I installed Manjaro I installed it with NON-FREE drivers and so
xorg-xrandr are already installed and up-to-date.
And my HDMI port is not working. I think that's because only the Intel iGPU is present in the X11 conf (HDMI port is part of the Nvidia GPU).
While I was trying to find out why, I find that Manjaro does an Automated Identification and Installation of GPUs during the install.
$ sudo mhwd-gpu --check [sudo] password for shark: Using default Default lib32 support: true xorg configuration symlink valid... libGl and libglx symlinks valid... $ sudo mhwd-gpu --status Using default Default lib32 support: true :: status lib32-libGl: '/usr/lib32/mesa/libGL.so.1.2.0' lib32-libGLESv1: '/usr/lib32/mesa/libGLESv1_CM.so.1.1.0' lib32-libGLESv2: '/usr/lib32/mesa/libGLESv2.so.2.0.0' lib32-libEGL: '/usr/lib32/mesa/libEGL.so.1.0.0' libGl: '/usr/lib/mesa/libGL.so.1.2.0' libGLESv1: '/usr/lib/mesa/libGLESv1_CM.so.1.1.0' libGLESv2: '/usr/lib/mesa/libGLESv2.so.2.0.0' libEGL: '/usr/lib/mesa/libEGL.so.1.0.0' libglx: '/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.xorg' xorg configuration file: '/etc/X11/mhwd.d/intel.conf'
The Manjaro Settings Manager (Hardware configuration) is telling me that hybrid bumblebee driver is installed in both case (see screenshot).
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d folder is only containing the following symlink
90-mhwd.conf -> /etc/X11/mhwd.d/intel.conf.

So what I have to do to make my HDMI port working? And how can I check that my Nvidia GPU is working or not?
I don't think I need to install more drivers but I can't figure if I need to use the
mhwd tool provided by Manjaro to configure some more settings or if I need to create a new
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf file or even if I need to replace the
intel.conf with a
This may help too:

Edit : Is this post xrandr doesn't detect monitor on hdmi port answering my question?
Why I am questionning here
I apologize to ask this question here but ArchLinux forum say this
These boards are for the support of Arch Linux, and Arch ONLY If you have installed Archbang, Antegros, Chakra, Evo/Lution, Manjaro, Whatever, you are NOT running Arch Linux. Similarly, if you followed some random video on YouTube or used an automated script you found on a blog, you are NOT running Arch Linux, so do not expect any support, sympathy or anything but your thread being closed and told to move along. Arch is a DIY distro: if someone else has done it for you, then showing up here asking to have your hand held for more help is just help vampirism and is not welcome.
and I never received the confirmation mail for Manjaro Linux forum.
I made search and configuration efforts so I wish this is not help vampirism as some says. Plus I really don't want to trash my distro by installing wrong drivers (it already happened to me when I installed Nvidia drivers from their website, now I know that's a very bad idea).
