After Python update, I used these commands to recompile optimus-manager :

yay -S optimus-manager && yay -S optimus-manager-qt

Confirming the experiences reported by DAMO238 and LIN_X42; the symptom for me was a black screen on system startup, and I fixed it with a makepkg -sif. This is because the package() function in the PKGBUILD is what installs the Python module, so you have to rebuild the package to install it to Python 3.9.

If you are getting a ModuleNotFoundError when trying to start up the optimus-manager systemd service, just rebuild the package and it should work again.

rebuild the package to port it from python3.8 to python3.9.

Thank you for this project. I can easily switch between the nvidia and intel GPU. Instructions is clear and simple to understand. Dell inspiron 15 7567 running under Manjaro with KDE.

@rharish yeah, that was a typo. The PKGBUILD was incorrectly pinned to master instead of the version tag. Fixed now.

After six hours of tinkering with other options this is the only solution that actually worked practically out of the box on Thinkpad w520 with display brightness controls working with recommended kernel parameters (video.use_native_backlight=0 acpi_backlight=video nvidia-drm.modeset=1). Other ones had issues with either starting X (lots of different problems) or controlling backlight.

Thank you for your work.

@Askannz, since this package gets the latest commits from your repo, isn't it a duplicate of "optimus-manager-git"? Even the PKGBUILDs are extremely similar. Why not make this package download the source tarball from the latest release, and then build that one?

Thank you for the project! For some reason, last update does not seem to install the default optimus-manager.conf in /etc/optimus-manager/ (and the upgrade deleted the one that was already there).

@Askannz, many many thanks for this project, that is now in a rock solid version and make dual gpu management so easy ! When I install a new arch system with an Nvidia card, that's the package I install just after Nvidia package for solving all my drivers issues
