Plasma + Wayland + NVIDIA/Intel + Hybrid Graphics

Hello there!

I booted the EOS ISO with NVIDIA drivers and proceeded with the installation.

Everything seemed to work fine:

lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia_uvm           6631424  0
nvidia_drm            122880  17
nvidia_modeset       1605632  4 nvidia_drm

I want NVIDIA to be my default GPU, what should I do next?

nvidia-ins --config?
Envy Control?

Thank you,


Hi. Have you already gone into your BIOS and toggled your preferred GPU? Hybrid laptops should have a toggle in the BIOS.
