How to use dgpu for some apps

i just install davinci resolve in garuda linux and the app not opening in integrated graphics so i switch the graphic to hybrid but still davinci resolve not opening, Its only opening when i switch graphic to nvidia but i want both integrated and dgpu working same time.

you need to switch to nvidia to boot in optimus manager then it should work

Its not possible to run both igpu and dpu at same time?

are you using nvidia?
have you got optimus manager enabled?
if so set settings to startup nvidia?

Yeah i set to nvidia and its working but now what about igpu?

IIRC, only one GPU can work at a time.

Just keep it in hybrid mode and execute any program you want to run with the dgpu with prime-run [program-executable-here]? That's the default on garuda linux, you don't have to mess around with optimus manager.

He already did that and even said that's not what he wants? :thinking:

That's just not true.


It doesn't work on my PC (not Notebook) with intel iGPU and Nvidia GPU.
But you know, nothing works on my PC's :smiley:

Sorry i miss read

That wouldnt work with the 16xx version lots of problems with it so had to always clean boot into nvidia. Not sure if 17xx version got fixed though.

I use it every day and haven't had any problems ever on 2 different laptops. I'm also the person who made it (the mhwd config), so take that with a grain of salt :stuck_out_tongue:
