Hi, basically the title say it all in short.
I’ve a functional installation with Nvidia proprietary only driver and because I don’t really need the proprietary driver for more than a couple of software I would like to switch to a prime setup, but even searching here or on the archwiki I really struggle to understand properly how all the Nvidia stuff works and every time I try to mess with it I brake my system.
Any good soul which have the time and knowledge to help me so that maybe I can understand it once and for all?
mm, I’m confused tho, I’ve installed using non-free option and I’ve uninstalled xf86-video-intel now, rebooted and nothing changed. In which I mean that for example if I run Blender “normally” he sees the Nvidia card and let me render with it and if I try to use prime-run to launch something it says “command not found”. Or it is prime-run not viable on gnome wayland? I’m so confused!!!
I can’t say for sure that this is going to be the issue for you … but I know my ASUS Zenbook had the problem outlined at the bottom of this page… nVidia Troubleshooting-System does not return from suspend … though if you are only having the screen timeout and no actual suspend, then this is likely not the issue.
I only have the timeout and also I never had this issue before. And I’ve using gnome a lot.
Also now if @jonathon is right it should be using the Intel driver for the DE and so it should not be related ro Nvidia at all
