When I tried to run “sudo systemctl enable supergfxd.service --now” it said “Failed to enable unit: Unit file supergfxd.service does not exist.” so I downloaded the supergfxd.service file seperately and tried to move it to /usr/lib/systemd/system but I was prompted with “Error opening file “/usr/lib/systemd/system/supergfxd.service”: Permission denied”.
Anyone got a way to bypass this issue so I can my install? Help would be much appreciated.
In workshops using specialized linux software, many students ran into similar difficulties. In the workshops, we started spending the first two afternoons in a 2-week program introducing use of the linux command line with Linux Command. Another good introduction is Apple Command Line Primer:
Shell scripts are a fundamental part of the OS X programming environment. As a ubiquitous feature of UNIX and UNIX-like operating systems, they represent a way of writing certain types of command-line tools in a way that works on a fairly broad spectrum of computing platforms.
All linux distributions share a common core of command-line tools, so you may prefer documents available from other distributions in languages other than English. There are a few excellent on-line tutorials, but also many with dangerous omissions and mistakes.
I was able to transfer the file after some hard thinking but I’m still stuck with the same issue of running “sudo systemctl enable supergfxd.service --now” and getting “Failed to enable unit: Unit file supergfxd.service does not exist.”.
I think I just got a whole separate issue on my hands, maybe supergfxt is only for asus laptops while I have a HP Envy 13. I’m just trying to get the ability to switch my dGPU on or off to improve battery life.
