  7. Default Antergos repos only, in default order. No 3rd party repos.
  8. Max upgraded. Neither upgrades nor downgrades are available.
  9. The system is:
  10. - Dell XPS 17
  11. - pure Legacy BIOS, no UEFI. No video card(s) control - the most Bmb-friendly
  12. - NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M - classic Optimus (hybrid) video card
  13. Lately tested on:
  14. - Acer Aspire V5 573g
  15. - UEFI BIOS, switched to Legacy mode, Secure Boot disabled. No video card(s) control - the most Bmb-friendly
  16. - NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M - classic Optimus (hybrid) video card
  17. All results below refer to Dell XPS 17 with NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M. Results on Acer Aspire V5 573g with NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M are exactly the same.

  414. Wow! All my packages are installed! Another surprise.
  415. Well, soma were already installed, prior to Bumblebee. For example, xf86-video-intel. ArchWiki recommends to **reinstall** it along with Bumblebee, to rebuild dependencies. @karasu doesn't do it. Which is probably not good, though I'm not sure about it.
  416. Must take a look at my original Arch Bumblebee article. It was never published in Antergos. It has the motivation for every explicitely installed package.
  417. So, the immediate answer to the question "Why @karasu works?" is: because after fresh Antergos 17.1 installation and nvidia-installer's execution all **my** packages are installed.
  418. What will happen if a Bmb package is not installed neither by Cnchi, nor by nvidia-installer? Most probably Bumblebee will fail.
  419. That's why I will prefer my way for installing Bmb. For now. Those described in AnteWiki.
  420. I must study nvidia-installer's source on GitHub.
  421. Enough with packages for now. What about the USER's groups?
  422. Bmb user must be included in two groups:
  423. - bumblebee
  424. - video
  425. @karasu doesn't include a USER in the video group. But his Bumblebee works perfectly. Why?
  426. May it be because my USER is included in the wheel group?

  437. I nave no answer to this question.
  438. Finally, differences in configuration.
  439. Bmb creates and uses its own configuration files, and keeps them in /etc/bumblebee directory. They substitute the classic /etc/X11/xorg.conf and similar in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. Does Bmb folder exist?
  440. ```

  459. All Bmb dirs and files exist. I checked three .conf files content by hand, and it is correct. Three Bmb .conf files are:
  460. - xorg.conf.nvidia <-- Bmb for Nvidia prop driver
  461. - bumblebee.conf <-- general Bmb config
  462. - xorg.conf.nouveau <-- Bmb for Nouveau free driver
  463. nvidia-installer --test says it will create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf file:
  464. ```
  465. ┌──[just]─[alexatp]:~$
  466. └─> ls -lha /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
  467. ls: cannot access '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf': No such file or directory
  468. ┌──[just]─[alexatp]:~$
  469. └─>
  470. ```
  471. The file was not created. And it is good! I don't know what it serves for, and what @karasu wants to put in it. The file is not needed by Bmb, it's OK that it is missing.
  472. To conclude, about nvidia-settings utility. It is included in menu under the title "NVIDIA X Server Settings".
  473. The utility is never installed with correct Optimus settings. In no distro. It is always installed to be run on single-GPU, non-hybrid Nvidia cards. If not reconfigured, it returns the error on Optimus.
  474. So nvidia-settings is installed, but is not ready for immediate use. It will provocate additional users woes.
  475. All tests and checks are finished.
  476. Some subtle doubts about packages still remain. I'd prefer to explicitely install all **my** Bmb packages, and not to count on default Antergos installation.
  477. Regards
