Hi,
I just installed KDE Neon and GPU driver for my NVidia GT 820M.. I installed the nvidia-driver-390 - distro non-free recommended.
Why does it show just an intel driver?. Should I try to reinstall the system or what do you recommend? I know that I allowed secure boot by mistake, but then I disabled it, purged nvidia drivers and installed it again...

I reinstalled the system, but it still didn't work..

Now, problem is solved :-)
So I switchet to Debian with XFCE and installed drivers with Bumblebee and everything works fine, link here: https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee
The problem probably could be solved in KDE Neon too, with this article: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee.
Bye KDE, maybe later :-) I love you
