Bug Description

I think the menu should rather be a checkbox which pins/unpins using a dedicated card option. That way, people can always launch, for instance, their browser with nvidia hardware acceleration for instance.

Something to discuss upstream of course.

Upstream seems to show this was fixed, and I can see the fix is in 3.37.2 onward.
