Unable to open nvidia-settings application

I have installed drivers and dependencies using following commands
sudo nvidia-installer-dkms
sudo pacman -S linux-lts-headers acpi_call-dkms mesa-demos xorg-xrandr xf86-video-intel git

Launching nvidia-settings is giving following error in terminal.
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system.

I am using 5.10.68-1-lts and kde plasma, i am running endeavour os on laptop with intel-nvidia hybrid graphics card, i just want to use nvidia on-demand and intel for everything else. it was working fine with endeavour os gnome. Reinstalled the os today with kde plasma and i am unable to launch nvidia-settings.

@lucifer it’s missing in new installation, check this out:

Maybe we should add point 3 to my today’s pm (need to explain yourself each time) :sweat_smile:

Had you rebooted after using those commands from OP?

If answer is yes, then see that https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/nvidia-settings-error-unable-to-load-info-from-any-available-system/154715 perhaps 2nd post advise “active display” will help.

Yes, actually it opened first time after install but not working after reboot.

system is not switched to nvidia GPU ?

hmm i do not got your PM today ?

After switching to nvidia GPU using optimus-manager I am able to open it, and I was also able to open it after switching to on-demand mode(logout and login). But after reboot it won’t work

oh…it’s already yesterday :sweat_smile:
Time is bloat!


i think it is supposed to be like that… what should you set if nvidia GPU is not used?
And after reboot… is system running on the Nvidia GPU?
