How can I get a program like glxgears to run on my computer? I've tried installing nVidia proprietary drivers (which reduce the resolution to 640x480) and bumblebee to no avail.
When I run
optirun glxgears with bumblebee, bumblebee-nvidia, and nvidia-current installed it fails with:
[ 2654.015008] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver [ 2654.015090] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.
I've read many other questions that seem to relate to my issue, but none of the answers have worked for me. It seems like one of the most common answers was that it is impossible to switch graphics with this kind of card, so in that case how should I go about disabling it and relying on the intel card?
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on an HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 with an nVidia GeForce GT 630M and am not a very experienced ubuntu user, so if I'm missing any critical information please point it out and I will happily provide it.
