@FFY00 - Sure, is there any cooperation required from my side? @patryk - Not sure, it would require a bit of investigation. @Hivemind - as far as i know it would have to provide nvidia and then in deps would be only nvidia

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.
