Config Details for i3 Manjaro
Persisting Nvidia Graphic Card Settings
My excellent GeForce GTX 980, still going strong after a number of years, uses the
non-free drivers on Manjaro.
The issue with Manjaro out of the box seems to be that the
nvidia-settings app doesn't save the monitor config you set, and when you reboot you end up with the default settings.
To solve this issue:
sudo nvidia-settingsfrom a terminal.
- Make the desired configuration changes under the
X Server Display Configurationtab, and click the
Save to X Configuration Filebutton.
- Name the file
20-nvidia.confand save it to
- Reboot and the settings should persist.

Enabling the AUR
Go to the GUI package manager settings and find the checkbox that enables the AUR. Just don't fight with the command-line package manager kid.
