Hello everyone, I am new to Linux and just installed the OS (Ubuntu specifically if it might help).
As the title says I need some help getting the set up of the hybrid graphics right.

These are the parameters my laptop (Lenovo Legion Y520 80WK) has:

Device-1: Intel HD Graphics 630 driver: i915 v: kernel

Device-3: Bison EasyCamera driver: uvcvideo type: USB
Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 21.1.11 with: Xwayland v: 23.2.6 driver: X:
loaded: modesetting,nvidia unloaded: fbdev,nouveau,vesa dri: iris gpu: i915
resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz
API: EGL v: 1.5 drivers: iris,nvidia,swrast

API: OpenGL v: 4.6.0 compat-v: 4.5 vendor: intel mesa v: 24.0.5-1ubuntu1

Additionally, the Arch Wiki its a diamond mine for all things Linux, even if you're not using Arch Linux yourself; as all Linux distro's share mutual fundamentals.

Most of what your inquiring about has already been provided via the Arch Wiki and no doubt within the Ubuntu Community.

Hope you find this useful.
