Hi! Thanks a lot for your work on egpu support on tb2/tb1 mac like mine

I have successfully get it works with purge-wrangler / purge-nvda

My setup is: Macbook Retina 15 late 13 with 750m dGpu / Sonnet breakaway 350 with Aorus rx580 / Mojave 10.14.3

I use this setup as the home workstation, but usually, I need to take my laptop elsewhere, on my job. So each time when I plug/unplug eGpu, I need to run purge-nvda in the terminal to install / uninstall dGpu. Otherwise, if I will not turn on nvidia-drivers back, such things as brightness and sleep mode in a clamshell will not work.

So I'm wondering if there any simple solution to optimize these processes. Like maybe some Automator script on thunderbolt connection which will runs purge-nvda on plug in, and uninstall it back on egpu disconnection?



Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
