This package is obsolete in favor of extra/nvidia-prime, for better control of the utilization of graphic card, give aur/optimus-manager a try. BTW, nvidia-drm.modeset=1 seems to interfere with the automatic configuration of xorg-server, resulting in it's failing to initialize PRIME render offload, manually specifying the bus id of the graphic cards is a workaround for now.

@bw1910 Currently, the state of wayland on the proprietary nvidia driver is experimental, thus there exists a udev rule for gdm (/usr/lib/udev/rules.d/61-gdm.rules) to disable the wayland session when the nvidia driver is loaded. So it's reasonable that NVIDIA mode works only with xorg. Removing the nvidia dependency is actually beneficial, I mean there do exists many who still have old nvidia cards supported by packages other than nvidia. I'm also grateful for your feedback.

@tjackson The not that necessary VK_ICD_FILENAMES variable I used is for working around the misbehavior of vulkan, which tend to load the first icd file it finds, in most cases, the intel one. So, in general, it should work without the variable. (Removing vulkan-intel also does the trick, by the way.)

For some reason on Manjaro nvidia_icd.json is in /etc/vulkan/icd.d. But Vulkan still works for me without VK_ICD_FILENAMES exported at all.

@NickCao I forgot to mention, that i am always using INTEL mode instead of NVIDIA mode. So maybe my conclusion was wrong, that the 'nvidia' packages would also work with my older Geforce GT525M, because I never really used the NVIDIA gpu.

On the other hand, using only INTEL mode may work no matter which NVIDIA driver i'm using. And maybe deleting 'nvidia' from the PKGBUILD deps might not be necessary in general. So sorry for possibly leading you in the wrong direction.

Running two arch systems with different DEs (Gnome/Wayland and KDE/Xorg), i experienced that INTEL mode (with my older version of arch-prime-git) works with both (NVIDIA gpu is noted as OFF), NVIDIA mode only seems to work with KDE/XOrg.

But again, NVIDIA mode is not my favourite mode anyway, my aim is to keep INTEL mode working on Gnome/Wayland no matter with which driver ('nvidia' or 'nvidia-390xx').

I know it's far from ideal sticking with an older version of arch-prime-git (which i still use because currently it's the only working solution for me), but i'd hate to switch back to Bumblebee.

I'd be really grateful for other suggestions, so thanks for your great work anyway, so far and in advance.

@bw1910 nvidia mode should work fine, however the new prime mode would fail, I'll remove the nvidia dependency for now, thanks for your suggestion

@keiichiiownsu12 Not exactly the same, but similar.

Have 'nvidia-390xx-dkms'/'nvidia-390xx-utils' and 'bbswitch-dkms' installed an a NVIDIA Optimus Notebook (Geforce GT525M), working fine with arch-prime-git (0.3.r67.g9158ce9-1). Updating to current version wants me to replace the 'nvidia-390xx' packages with the 'nvidia' packages, denying ends up in aborting the update with unsolvable deps. Have set IgnorePkg to arch-prime-git in pacman.conf temporarily. I could switch driver to 'nvidia' (I remember that in the past 'nvidia' driver was also working with my graphics card) but i'd rather keep the recommended 'nvidia-390xx' driver. Is 'nvidia-390xx' not supported or should it just be added it to the deps in PKGBUILD?

Hate to sound. . .stupid, but would this allow gpu switching similar to prime-select on Ubuntu?
