@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

Could you add nvidia as dependency?

Thank you, that did it.

The package just needs to be rebuild against the new Python version 3.8 So just rebuild and reinstall, then u should be fine. Maybe @Askannz could consider bumping $pkgrel ?

Recent system updates cause this to fail to start the service, reverting to Intel GPU.

This project is amazing ! Thanks for the job It solved all my setup issues with NVIDIA drivers whatever the desktop environment used (tested on KDE, Cinnamon,XFCE and Deepin until now) It can ALSO be used if you don't have a dual CPU, just for a working install of nvidia drivers.

@Askannz This project is amazing! This is just what I was looking for when wanting to have prime-select on Arch.

Hey @Askannz, stepping by to say thank you for your this project and for packaging it for the AUR.

I noticed you do provides=(); this should not be needed for the actual $pkgname / $pkgver according to the wiki. Seems you can omit that statement.

Anyways, great job ! Cheers !

@Askannz Thanks. BTW you could go the bumblebee route:

The official nvidia packages are, as listed in the dependencies of bumblebee:

nvidia - NVIDIA kernel driver
nvidia-340xx - NVIDIA kernel driver for even older devices
nvidia-390xx - NVIDIA kernel driver for old devices

Since AFAIK some form nvidia is required for this package.

@jpegxguy I changed the blacklist path and removed the nvidia dependency.

I though legacy packages like nvidia-390xx provided the virtual package nvidia, but it does not seem to be the case. Oh well.
