Hybrid Graphics (DRI_PRIME)
Jennifer M. Morse
Posted 2017-10-09 12:09
I have a number of launchers with commands that look something like this:

"/home/user/.cxoffice/Rift/desktopdata/cxmenu/StartMenu.C^5E3A_users_Public_Start^2BMenu/Programs/Glyph/Glyph.lnk" %u

How/where do I add "DRI_PRIME=1"  so that I can use the more powerful half of my hybrid graphics setup?

Environment variables like "DRI_PRIME=1" are placed before the command itself, for instance:

DRI_PRIME=1 glxgears


So, I think you can put it in the beginning of the line you mentioned is in the laucher, OR you can edit the .lnk file itself, which contains an exec command and place it before the exec.

If I put it at the start of the launcher command I get an error message.

How do I edit the lnk?

You need to open up a terminal, then go to the folder with the .lnk file:

cd /home/user/.cxoffice/Rift/desktopdata/cxmenu/StartMenu.C^5E3A_users_Public_Start^2BMenu/Programs/Glyph/


Then you may use your favorite text editor (I use kate - I'm a KDE user), but I like mcedit when I'm on a text terminal. You may use the one that comes with your distro, like vi or nano:

nano glyph.lnk


or you can type the whole path together with the filename:

nano /home/user/.cxoffice/Rift/desktopdata/cxmenu/StartMenu.C^5E3A_users_Public_Start^2BMenu/Programs/Glyph/glyph.lnk
