Change default video card to nvidia

Postby clasicus » 2019-09-03 06:42

Hello! I have a laptop with two graphics cards: intel, nvidia. When I used ubuntu, in the update settings, I chose: install the driver for nvidia, after which I rebooted the laptop and in the parameters in the device description, the nvidia video card was selected in the line of the graphics. Now on debian 10 I try to do the same, but it doesn’t work. As far as I understand, in ubuntu the "prime" program, which is being developed for ubuntu, plays a key role in this matter. It’s impossible to find information on the Internet, is it possible to install prime in debian (is this really possible?). Therefore, I installed bumblebee and the driver for nvidia according to this article Using the optirun nvidia-settings -c: 8 command, nvidia x server starts up for me. However, as before, intel appears in the system description. For this reason, I can’t connect an external monitor via hdmi (there were no problems on ubuntu). Please tell me how to be? Thank you in advance!

The Arch wiki has a troubleshooting section on Bumblebee that might help with your external monitor issue.
