gparted needs something else.

You mean this page:


Together we go over some of the websites that contain information about Nvidia.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/hybrid_graphics

https://arcolinux.com/category/arcolinu ... al/nvidia/

https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/drivers/

Together we select the correct package and download it.

Then we install

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers optimus-manager-qt

and so on?


But it says Hybrid graphic card!

Code: Select all

The procedure matters not the name.

Here is another article not for hybrid computer systems.

Sorry, this is no help to me! The videos are all in English, I can't translate them, but a manual, written as a command line for the console, can.
I'm afraid that's it for me with ArcoLinux!

See the article - it is all written out

The problem is Nvidia on Arch Linux and maybe on other Linux distros right now.

Hopefully better support will follow in 2021.

Glad I have an intel gpu. No issues.

Well, after 2 hours of searching, correcting the entries in the command line and starting the installation of the Nvidia driver, I finally got an error message that the driver installation failed!
That was it for me! In every Linux distri I have installed so far, even Arch based ones like Manjaro, the Nvidia driver has worked!
Unfortunately, this is a no-go for me. Many thanks for your help, in vain. Good by.
