    Default suse 13.1 + nVidia optimus + external displays

    Hi,

    Have not found similar topics. Please move/kill if I double post by accident.

    I have a question regarding the nVidia setup with Optimus technology

    So the setup:
    MSI GT 60 20D notebook: iCore 7, 32 gb RAM, nVidia 780m, Intel HD4600, SuSe 13.1 (fresh install)
    Code:
    # /sbin/lspci -vnn 
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0416] (rev 06) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) 
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GK104M [GeForce GTX 780M] [10de:119f] (rev ff) (prog-if ff)
    So it is Optimus and I have installed Bumblebee following http://smithfarm-thebrain.blogspot.d...bumblebee.html
    The system works ... BUT I cannot connect any external monitors to the notebook, the system does not see them.

    I've looked up https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project...-monitor-setup but it's a bit over my level of knowledge/confidence ...

    Goal: I want to have a KDE running extended on the external monitors (or the internal one, when nothing is connected). I do not care about power consumption, so if the nVidia card would be working all the time - its fine.

    I would very much appreciate step-by-step instructions. I'll post the output of anything, just say what is needed (Sorry, I'm really newby in these issues).
    Thanks

    I do not care about power consumption, so if the nVidia card would be working all the time - its fine.
    Then, what about just doing a "one click install" of the proprietary nvidia driver that runs only the nvidia cards all the time and forgets about the intel integrated gpu....?

    In Yast, you can manage the repositories and select the official nvidia repository for official nvidia drivers that should manage external display. Then, just install the G03 driver and install it. Maybe installing nvdock, from packman repository i think, could help you fine tuning your configuration.
