I have installed bumblebee on my Asus laptop U36SG with a 610m Nvidia dedicated graphic card and a Intel integrated one.
When I open System Settings -> Details -> Graphics, Ubuntu 12.04 64bit won't detect my video driver. "Driver Unknown".
I have made a test with optirun. This is the result.
$ optirun glxspheres Polygons in scene: 62464 Visual ID of window: 0x21 Context is Direct OpenGL Renderer: GeForce 610M/PCIe/SSE2 123.168638 frames/sec - 137.456199 Mpixels/sec 138.215647 frames/sec - 154.248662 Mpixels/sec 139.426502 frames/sec - 155.599976 Mpixels/sec 139.378692 frames/sec - 155.546620 Mpixels/sec 139.481144 frames/sec - 155.660957 Mpixels/sec 139.375521 frames/sec - 155.543082 Mpixels/sec
After this I have found on the command optirun nvidia-settings -c :8 Here I can see that the It is working. I am new to Ubuntu, I have used it for 2 weeks on this settings and it worked fine, in my opinion.
Can I set Ubuntu to display my graphic card? It is recommended to install Nvidia Additional Driver? Thanks.
