I am trying to make nvidia vulkan driver being detected, tried in zen, ck and lts kernels.
Already tried to remove vulkan-intel and lib32-vulkan-intel with no sucess, but when I'm with then installed my vulkan works (as a intel hardware)

Doing this snippet of code that is stated in wiki also didn't work.

export VK_ICD_FILENAMES=/usr/share/vulkan/icd.d/nvidia_icd.json

I tried to see if vulkan works using the game Talos Principle from steam, the game runs in opengl, but when I change to vulkan it crashs instantly.
I also tried to test if it was seen in vulkanCapsViewer, but when I don't have vulkan-intel installed I got an error "Could not enumarted device count" and then it not show my nvidia card as it should.

- nvidia-dkms 390.25-11
- vulkan-intel 17.3.4-1
- mesa 17.3.4-1
- xorg-server 1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-1
- xorg-xrandr 1.5.0-1
- linux-zen 4.15.5-1
- linux-ck 4.15.5-1

Steps to reproduce:
* Install and setup nvidia prime
* Try to run any vulkan software
This task depends upon

Nevermind, my card is not supported by nvidia vulkan. I'll never buy their trash again.
