Description Andrey Ponomarenko 2015-05-22 14:36:21 MSD
Description of problem:

The NVIDIA Display Settings application doesn't work on computers with Optimus.

The command:

optirun /usr/lib64/nvidia346/bin/nvidia-settings

shows error message: "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver".

However, bumblebee successfully switches graphics in applications (games, etc.) from integrated to discrete card.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R5

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install proprietary NVIDIA driver via XFdrake
2. Try to open NVIDIA Display Settings

Comment 2 Andrey Ponomarenko 2015-06-01 08:48:00 MSD
The nvidia-settings can be successfully run by this command:

optirun -b none /usr/lib64/nvidia346/bin/nvidia-settings -c :8
Comment 3 Andrey Ponomarenko 2015-06-01 08:50:08 MSD
Why /usr/bin/nvidia-settings is not installed by x11-driver-video-nvidia346?
Comment 4 Eugene Shatokhin 2015-06-01 12:22:43 MSD
(In reply to comment #3)
/usr/bin/nvidia-settings is provided by x11-driver-video-nvidia346. The question is, why it is removed or fails to install.
