If I understand you correctly you have an nvidia card and an an Intel one.

EndeavourOS has an install script for just that situation:

Install "nvidia-installer ", then run it with the -b option:

“sudo nvidia-installer -b” and it should set it all up correctly for you.


really ? just only this two command ? i’m not dream right ? :grinning:


It worked for me :slight_smile:

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

the “b” option is for installing bumblebee, otherwise it installs it as if you don’t have an intel card, only the nvidia card.



Whelp, it’s settled. EOS won me over, when can I move in? :rofl:

Seriously, have been going at it for some time. Spared me an aneurysm.


it’s cause me a blank screen always i tried … i can’t use arch :frowning:

I had the exact same problem at the start. Check out my own thread regarding this issue:

I had exactly the same problem. I installed Endevour OS to an old laptop which originally used Optimus drivers to switch automatically.
I tried the NVIDIA installer with bumblebee, but it did not worked very well. I solved the problem by installing optimus-manager. it is at the end link

This allows you to choose which card to use, and by default uses the Intel so you to avoid the black screen. Although, I wanted to use the NVIDIA drivers, but there seems to be a conflict between the nouveau and NVIDIA drivers, so I blacklisted the nouveau creating a file



blacklist nouveau
blacklist lbm-nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
alias nouveau off
alias lbm-nouveau off

I was able switch between NVIDIA and Intel cards. I also regenerate the initramfs, but
I don’t know if this step was necessary. I hope this helps.
