Neptune with nvidia bumblebee, PLEASE! - Rafa27 - 05-02-2018 04:05 PM

Hi, I'm Rafa Castro and I recently installed Neptune 5.1.
It's really a great OS with everything I've ever wanted gathered in a debian.
It would be perfect except for one reason: my NVDIA GEFORCE 930M with optimus technology.
Without the necessary drivers for it I'm having higher battery consumption in addition to screen instabilities when using KDE features like the 3D cube.
I do not understand why not allow the installation of bumblebee which is an open-source project.
Please, those who have fallen in love with neptune and need to use drivers for optimus technology cards like me, help me to ask providers to reconsider using nvidia bumblebee drivers.
If anyone knows an alternative to solve my problem, please answer me.
Thank you!

We are not blocking anything in particular. If you know what you do you can install it manually.
We can just not give support for it as it is a binary blob (a black box basically).
