@snqlby I see this issue when using the lightdm display manager, but not on GDM.

Looks like it doesn't work correctly. I used sudo systemctl enable switcheroo-control but I need to activate this manually every boot.

With this package installed on systems with dual-GPU, you can right-click on apps (while it's not running) in GNOME Shell's Activities Overview and choose "Launch using Dedicated Graphics Card" option.

Fedora 25 and later installs switcheroo-control by default.

Please, vote +1 to push this package into official repository.

Thanks

Installing base-devel, as https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Getting_started recommends, will also get rid of that error.

I don't know how to test it, but it should be pushed into official repository since Gnome shell 3.24 will depend (partially?) on this for the feature:
