I installed netrunner arch using the non free driver option. After installation on checking the nVidia settings I get the following error:
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.
I noticed that changing the screen brightness would be buggy. I had the same trouble with Ubuntu based distributions but I would then install nvidia drivers from the xorg edgers ppa and it would be fixed. Here is the lspci dump:

My system is surely up to date. I also updated the Linux kernel to 3.15 (perhaps irrelevant, but wanted to stress that I updated everythin). As far as settings, could you guide me a but further. I need more details as I’m fairly new to arch/manjaro/netrunner. Attached is a screenshot of my manjaro settings manager @ hardware detection…
You need both the video-Intel and the video-nvidia diver installed for the video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-bumblebee you have activated to work, unfortunately it looks like the video-nvidia driver is not installed on your system.
Hit the install Auto-Install Proprietary Driver button at the top, let it do it’s thing and reboot when it’s finished.
