When will Ubuntu (or a Linux kernel) have native nvidia Optimus support? Estimates? Weeks/months/years?
"Native nvidia optimus support" as in when I run a graphically-demanding application, my nvidia graphics card will automatically kick in (like in Windows). Or at least a way that I could click some button to turn my GPU on for when I want to run any game.
I heard somewhere that Manjaro allegedly had native optimus support; is this true? If so, is there a way to implement this in Ubuntu?
I'm running Bumblebee right now, yes I know what it is and what it does, but it's extremely impractical. I can't game on Linux with this. You have to start applications via command line/terminal, and usually most modern games aren't just one function (ie: when you call on the "game", it's really just a loader/splash screen, that calls upon other functions; and when the secondary functions are called, they're not optirun'ed).
