I've tried to install the
nvidia drivers on my Arch Linux / Antergos laptop, since I noticed it has been using the built-in Intel HD Graphics. The graphics card in question is a NVIDIA GeForce 940MX.
Here's what happened when I tried to make things work:
sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils nvidia-settings sudo nvidia-xconfig (reboot right here) (find that screen goes black and the backlight off when I switch to TTY7 / x) (switch to tty2) sudo modprobe nvidia (no output, things still don't work) sudo prime-select nvidia (apparently prime-select doesn't exist on my system for some reason despite having nvidia-settings) sudo pacman -R nvidia sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia-xconfig-original /etc/X11/xorg.conf (reboot right here) (back to normal, still on Intel Graphics Card)
Could someone tell me how to make these drivers actually work? I had them working on Ubuntu prior to this (as a last-resort after the last time I tried making them work on Arch/Antergos.)
Edit: I've got it working using optirun/primusrun and bumblebee, but I'd really prefer to just use it for everything, as I prefer quality over power management.
