Request: Bring back optimus manager

Or rather allow users to choose from prime or optimus on fresh install/garuda settings.

Having performance issues with prime making games run like crap or just unplayable, with optimus i had none of these issues. For average users it is also easier and more intuitive to use.

Also i cannot get optimus GUI installed on my system no matter what guide i use.

If none of these work for you, you may have other problems to solve. Please fully describe what you have tried so far...

$ pacman -Ss optimus
