First , I would like to say that I love the idea and principals behind Garuda Linux. I like the idea of using btrfs as the default. I really like having another gaming centric OS other than POP!_OS. Nothing against POP!_OS, I just want to see more that have a good gaming focus. There is a lot I like about Garuda. There is more I could say but I'll leave that for another topic.
My problem is that when I install the KDE ultimate edition 201205, my dual monitors work fine. I have a Alienware 17 R13 with the external graphic amp that has a GTX 1070. My second monitor is plugged into the 1070.
I did a full install yesterday. After I do a full upgrade with
pacman -Syu my second monitor stops working after I reboot. I noticed during the upgrade I got an error.
Failed to write file "/sys/module/pcie_aspm/parameters/policy": Operation not permitted error: command failed to execute correctly
Not sure if that has anything to do with it. So I tried to use the settings manager to auto install the video card drivers and I got this error.
Starting > Using config 'video-optimus-manager' for device: 0000:02:00.0 (0300:10de:1b81) Display controller nVidia Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1070] > Using config 'video-optimus-manager' for device: 0000:00:02.0 (0300:8086:191b) Display controller Intel Corporation HD Graphics 530 Error: config 'video-optimus-manager' conflicts with config(s): video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-dkms-prime-render-offloading Done ...
Alas I am at a loss of what to do next. I think it has something to do with the driver but not sure. This is my first laptop so I have never had to deal with the optimus stuff. I installed the optimus-manager and set
optimus-manager --switch nvidia which worked until I rebooted then it went back to the single screen.
Thanks for any help you can give.
