- add more filter to current config used and readapted xorg config editor for customized xorg.conf.
- reviewed xrandr config system and fixed it to be lighter.
- options in xorg file are useless and removed by default because with modesetting they are not reconize by the driver.
- introducing first modifications for next 'offload' setting. Read inside the script at 'go_offload' function if you want to help.
- default options conf file nvidia-drm set is by default set to 'none' (looks useless in most cases).
- WARNING: Do a 'sudo make install' this time and don't forget to make a backup of /etc/nvidia-prime.
( 2019/08/20 ) v0.9.19
- grub configuration tool updated, finally.
- many mistakes discovered and fixed. Including on previous update. (dev brain is not so well :s)
- check and test on my old laptop 610M with update 390.xx driver series, 390.129.
- HOW-TO : perform a new 'make install' if necessary.
- Save your libconfig file and custom xorg file if any.
- Exec 'nvidia-prime-select nvidia' by cmdline or GUI, reboot.

- don't forget to report in github issues section if anything goes wrong.

( 2018/04/24 ) v0.9.11
- Add a options config file editable by nvidia-prime-ui because some users seems to have big trouble with grub config. Options file default sample is send with comment.
- options are :
- delay: allow to add a user's session delay before launching xrandr command (default 5).
- intel_nodelay: start intel user's session without the configured delay (intel usually doesn't need it).
- cfg_grub: enable/disable check and config (default 1).
- cfg_modeset: enable/disable modeset config (if cfg_grub is set to 1) (default 1).
- nv_modeset: set nvidia modeset (grub section) to set (1) or unset (0) (default 1).
- font_style: nvidia-prime-ui brighness (dark/bright background.) (default 0)
- Rewrote grub config section to be more intuitive. It separatly add modeset and 'nouveau' blacklist. Modeset could be change to 0 or 1 thruough options config file (default is 1).
- Review xrandr auto config section to add offline displays at session manager start when nvidia option is set.
- Add a report.sample in markdown to fill in issue reports.
( 2018/04/22 ) v0.9.10
- Nvidia-prime-select was untested on multi display. It appeared that actual xrandr detection and sets failed, also display.prime was needed more delay before lauching because of xramdr monitors.xml file sets conflict.
- Above is fixed (hopefully), there's still a strange wallpaper behaviour diplayed in double on my laptop desktop. Please, report if you have the same issue.
- Just realize, I forgot to update /etc/modprobe.d to blacklist nouveau driver. Fixed (thanks to Tim).
- Note: laptop is not my default machine, and I can't figure out all possible issues by my self, or wait, like it actually the case, my PC's mother board to die to discover them.
( 2018/04/13 ) v0.9.9
- Importante change done. Look's more like a complete rewrite.
- NEW USER: nothing special, just type as superuser or admin : (sudo) make install.
- OLD USER:
- uninstall previous version first: (sudo) make unisntall.
- then reinstall as usualy: (sudo) make install.
- If your display settings are not done, do it first with your desktop display tool.
- execute nvidia-prime-select UI and select your display card.
- or by command line: nvidia-prime-select 'your_option'.
- Restart your session.
- An issue makes that session manager could take 30s to display correctly password field.
- You could also just reboot.
- After reboot/restart you may reconfigure your display setting and check if the xorg.conf fit your needs.
- POSSIBLE ISSUES:
- Session restart on gdm (gnome3) may cause result in a blank screen. In previous nvidia-prime-select, this issue was fix by inserting a delay waiting for full gdm start before insert xrandr command line. Try to uncomment 'sleep' function in /etc/nvidia-prime/xinitrc.prime and different delay. If it doesn't fix, think to change session manager to lightdm.
- In some case, xrandr display config (~.config/monitors.xml) could conflict with nvidia-prime-select xrandr auto conf function. First, remove ~.config/monitors.xml, and restart your session. If it doesn't fix, set your display again and disable nvidia-prime.desktop autostart (menu > system > pref > personal > autostart), then restart your session.
- At session restart login has a strange behaviour and could take 30/40s to display correctly. It maybe a polkit issue, but nt sure.
- Do not hesitate to send issue reports on Github page.
