Features

  • Display the current video card in the system tray
  • Graphic menu for Optimus Manager configuration
  • Switching video cards using the context menu
  • Customizable tray icon
  • Optional extended Plasma support (you can compile it with or without Plasma dependencies, see below)

Third-party

Libraries

This project uses SingleApplication (prevents launch of multiple application instances), which will be downloaded automatically at configure time using the built-in CMake FetchContent module.

Icons

circle-flags icons are used for flags.

Masalla icon theme is bundled to provide fallback icons.

Installation

Arch Linux and derivatives

You can install optimus-manager-qt or optimus-manager-qt-git from AUR.

Note: If you are using Plasma, it is recommended to replace in the PKGBUILD _plasma=false with _plasma=true to use additional KDE API feautures (this also adds additional dependencies).

Manual building

You can build Optimus Manager Qt by using the following commands:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..
cmake --build .

If you want to build with extended Plasma support you need to define WITH_PLASMA (the same as _plasma=true in the PKGBUILD):

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -D WITH_PLASMA ..
cmake --build .

You will then get a binary named optimus-manager-qt.

Localization

To help with localization you can use Crowdin or translate files in data/translations with Qt Linguist directly. To add a new language, write me on the Crowdin project page or copy data/translations/optimus-manager.ts to data/translations/optimus-manager_<ISO 639-1 language code>_<ISO 3166-1 country code>.ts, translate it and send a pull request.
