Summary0007108: support for nvidia optimus and bumble bee configration

Hello Ishan, did you enable bumblebee on your laptop? What steps did you follow? There's a doc regarding installing nvidia drivers in Kali:, does that help?

@arnaudr hello, in this guide says that its not ment for optimus (notebook user with 2 graphics card) , and yes i have tried this but its not working in laptop, if its connected via hdmi both laptop and external monitor cant be used with nvidia optimus in kali , as it can be used in ubuntu based system , for using external monitor we need to create a xorg configration file which will disable the use of laptop screen. please find some resolve, i have tried everything that i try .

Thank You
