Huge thanks for this, thought I was screwed with Nvidia Optimus until I saw this on the arch wiki!

Could you add support for nvhda module?

Doesn't work without sudo installed, so you should add it as a dependency.

I want to move this to the official repos, are you ok with this?

PedroHLC commented on 2018-10-20 14:39

why does it depends on mesa-libgl instead of just libgl, or opengl-driver, or just mesa?

Thank you very much! It realy work flawless and more effective than optirun!

This won't install if you're getting your Nvidia driver from the nvidia-390xx package, but I changed the dependency in the PKBUILD from 'nvidia' to 'nvidia-390xx' and it installed OK and seems to be working.

Is there a way you can make this package recognise it as an alternative dependency or something?

Great piece of software, and thanks to the guy who PKGBUILD'd it.

Very userful. If i may add a suggestion, it would be nice if one can launch it at boot, to be able to directly boot with the NVIDIA GPU on.

To be honest with you guys im not entirely familiar with the policies regarding dependencies.
But from a functionality point of view bbswitch is not optional. The script would crash on missing bbswitch executable. Also without nvidia it does not make too much sense to have this package.
I definetely agree though, to have the base dependency instead of specific provider(e.g. jdk8 vs java-runtime) but I'm not sure which one that would be.
So if you give me the correct dependency i will happily update it.

fludardes, no, that'd be wrong and also wouldn't help in this case. I don't know why this is the Arch policy, but official dkms-packages don't provide their base. However, no other package has a hard dependency on kernel modules so this doesn't matter, e.g.: official bumblebee does not depend on nvidia and bbswitch, they're only optional. In the same spirit, this package should only optionally depend on nvidia and bbswitch.

I don't really agree with this policy and think that dkms packages should provide their base so that packages like this one could properly depend. However it's also true that packages don't depend on the kernel and kernel modules are part of it.
