I have an Nvidia card, and a newer AMD video card.
I run Linux and Windows.
I’m having issues with Linux and the AMD card. But with the Nvidia card I don’t have any problems. Would it be possible to have both the Nvidia card and the AMD card in my system? Would I be able to have Linux exclusively use the Nvidia card, and Windows use the AMD card exclusively?
Just don’t install both drivers. Install only the nvidia driver on Linux and the AMD driver on Windows. Alternatively you can disable GPUs like @SgtAwesomesauce said, but what’s the point of having the driver installed for a component you don’t use anyway?
Fortunately, my days of being a Windows admin are gone, gone, GONE!
Agree that CUPS is awesome! Works wonders in an environment sprinkled with Macs as well.
You’re not lying about the Linux printing. I’ve installed Ubuntu 17.10 and my Epson WF connects immediately. On Debian Stretch and Fedora 25, 26 it was as simple as entering the IP of the printer.
I remember hacking drivers, years ago to get just one page to print! As long as you did one page, you were set. Multiple copies of a single page or a multi-page document? You’d better run downstairs before it catches fire…
