I am in the process of installing Arch on my laptop . I have installed Arch previously using AMD graphics in my old laptop. However , I can not get myself on with my new laptop. When I invoked lspci I got the following result , the Intel VGA is at the top and the NVIDIA discrete GPU at the lower bottom.

After consulting with the Arch linux community on Google Plus , I decided to use bumblebee with the following configuration https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/bumblebee#Installing_Bumblebee_with_Intel.2FNVIDIA . unfortunately I could not progress further as can be seen when I invoked optirun with the following command optirun -vv glxgears -info

Any suggestions or ideas how to install both Intel VGA and NVIDIA GPU ? Thanks.
