I intsall Bumblebee on ubuntu 12.10 by this articale and try to run some programs but it just stuck on terminal screen and i have to use ^Z to stop it. No glxgears and no glxspheres work. Here is some information maybe needed:

:~$ sudo cat /proc/acpi/bbswitch
0000:01:00.0 ON
:~$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 540M] (rev a1)

Also i change Driver= to Driver=nvidia and KernelDriver=nvidia-current to KernelDriver=nvidia in /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf and try again, it does not work yet. I'd be very grateful if someone can help me.
