At https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee

I did steps 1 to 3. However, instead of doing step 4, I did: sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends bumblebee linux-headers-generic?

If one day, I wanted to install the proprietary drivers instead. How would I undo this? Will running sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia linux-headers-generic do it, or would I need to do other things first?

--no-install-recommends prevent certain packages from being installed, mainly the nvidia driver. If you have bumblebee already installed, it is sufficient to run:

sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia linux-headers-generic

And what if it was the other way around? i.e. I installed bumblebee-nvidia first via sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia linux-headers-generic and wanted to revert. Is it enough to run: sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends bumblebee linux-headers-generic? –  Christian Fazzini Jan 15 '13 at 18:49
    
@ChristianFazzini I don't know a method which I tested, but maybe askubuntu.com/q/39579/6969 is of help for you? –  Lekensteyn Jan 15 '13 at 20:59
