@Kr1ss, thanks, updated !

You can use this PKGBUILD and optimus-manager.install for the time being. Those pull from the upstream repo and are likely about the same like what @Askannz will publish to the AUR.

I've not used the fork for some months now, actually since Askannz has set up his amd_support branch.

Sorry for the hassle btw.

Man, my usual luck, I found THE SOLUTION a mere few hours after its father has broken it.

@Kr1ss you had 3 files in a "script/" directory that evidently didn't make the merge into @Askannz's repo, are they used in any way, or can I simply remove the installs?

At the moment I have a laptop with a NVIDIA card that won't work, only a bunch of hours left until I have to hand it back, and the only solution that seems to work is not available because you deleted your fork BEFORE the upstream maintainer could update his package.

Is this not usually handled the other way around? Any way that I could have those 3 files?

Since amd_support has now been merged, could you please push the updated PKGBUILD @Askannz ?

optimus-manager-amd-git is now obsolete and could then be deleted. Thanks again !

Cheers !

EDIT Thank you very much !

The feature branch has been merged into master in the upstream repo. Therefore I've deleted my fork.

The optimus-manager-git package is not yet updated, I suppose @Askannz will soon do so though. Once that is done, everbody can just install that one, optimus-manager-amd-git will be uninstalled automatically due to the provides/conflicts mechanics.

Thank you again @t1meshift for publishing this package and maintaing so far.

@uno20001 Yes, someone needs to update this PKBUILD.

I think there are still problems with the PKGBUILD file. There isn't a scripts folder since https://github.com/Askannz/optimus-manager/commit/180480037464f12a06cd4067723360efd651e55c but the PKGBUILD file still wants to use the files in it.

Hey @t1meshift, thank you for packaging this !

I was planning to submit a pull request to the upstream project after integrating a custom setting to globally choose an iGPU vendor. So the user would have 3 (igpu, nvidia and hybrid) available modes, rather than 5 ({,hybrid-}intel, {,hybrid-}amd and nvidia), since generally you have either an Intel iGPU or an AMD one.

Unfortunately, I haven't yet managed to work on this b/c of real life priorities. Since the current state is stable (I'm using it on a Ryzen 5 + GTX 1050 laptop since >2 months w/o any kind of issues), I'm happy to see it packaged for the AUR though for the time being.

Cheers !

@michaldybczak There was something wrong with the pkgver(), it's fixed now.

Something is wrong with versioning in this PKGBUILD because after update system still things there is the package to update.
