Okay fellas, really reaching here.
Essentially I am trying to go for a minimal install on my main rig. The problem is that it it’s an Nvidia-tel “gaming” laptop, so I have to use
optimus-manager on my rig. I can’t seem to find the answer on how to accomplish this part of running
optimus-manager in the
optimus-manager wiki for
I do not use a display manager (I use startx or xinit)
Just like above, you must make sure to run
/usr/bin/prime-offload(as normal user) just after the X server is started, and
/usr/bin/prime-switch(as root) after it has stopped.
My question is: How do I run
/usr/bin/prime-switch as root after the X server has stopped?
Edit to clarify: I can switch between nvidia and intel graphics by logging out of X and manually inputting
sudo /usr/bin/prime-switch into the console. It is just that I want to execute this command automatically when X stops.
Another update: Although I can get
optimus-manager to switch to nvidia graphics by doing
optimus-manager --switch nvidia into the terminal emulator, which logs me out of X, and then proceeding to input
sudo /usr/bin/prime-switch into my tty console, and then inputting
startx to pull up my X environment once more to enable the
optimus-manager does not retain this setting after a reboot. I.e., every time I reboot, I have to restart this process again each time in order to use my second monitor. How would I eliminate this reboot problem?
