Linux Mint 18.3 Switch GPU between Intel and Nvidia

Post by rr92 » Mon Feb 26, 2018 6:48 pm

Hello all, I am trying to switch GPU between Nvidia and Intel but it doesn’t works. (I did on nvidia x server setting)
When I switch my GPU to Intel and try to reboot the laptop never shutdown. I added to the blacklist the nouveau.
Another thing that I try is updated kernel to 4.13

This is my inxi -Fxz output command:
