Briefly describe your issue below:
I’m using parrot from past few months now and have no clue if its using Nvidia graphics card, so how do I know that my parrot is using Nvidia graphics card over intel ?
Reason for this is sometimes my parrot take too long to boot up (sometimes take around 5 mins just to restart system) or run apps. So I was thinking if my graphics card might come in handy.
I have 8GB RAM with i7 8th Gen.
My laptop: Dell G3 3579
To install nvidia drivers I used this command and reboot the system after this:
sudo apt install nvidia-driver nvidia-smi nvidia-opencl-icd
Im sorry if it sounds like a silly post. Thanks in advance <3
