Getting to the point; On the version of Manjaro KDE that I’m running, when I choose to use hybrid graphics with NVIDIA-prime render offloading (named ‘video-hybrid-Intel-nvidia-prime’), MHWD doesn’t generate a file in xorg.conf.d with anything in it, meaning i don’t know how too properly write out my desired settings.
I’ve tried via trial and error to find a usable configuration but everything either results in a black screen or display pass-through which doesn’t really help me, at this point I suspect some kernel parameter somewhere needs to be flicked on or off but I have no way of knowing since all I’ve had to work with so far is a black screen and i have no idea how to format a xorg.conf for NVIDIA-Prime.
Though to be clear, NVIDIA-Prime itself functions just fine, I just can’t add, for example, Options “Coolbits” “8” to a .conf and have it stick.
To give some background, what I’m attempting to do is use NVIDIA-prime render offloading as a means of utilizing the card on the host when it’s not bound to vfio and used for GPU pass-through, essentially it’d mean I wouldn’t have to fiddle with cables every time i passed the GPU around, since i only have and want to have one monitor with one HDMI input.
I should probably also mention I have a dummy HDMI plug which I use for virtualization purposes when the card is passed to the guest, it wasn’t ever plugged in while I was trying xorg configs but I’m pretty sure it’s something I’d have to consider when I finally get a working .conf with settings i can change and have apply.
