For the life of me I cannot get Bumblee to work with my graphics card. I attempted to follow this thread to no avail, along with every other thread you get when you google "bumblebee GT 750M". Has anyone found away to use it with the GT 750M?

I don't so much have a problem with my graphics performance but with the power suck. I have tried to just load bbswitch, but after I make the file, and attempt to use modprobe I get this back:

ERROR: could not insert 'bbswitch': No such device

I am running Ubuntu 13.04 on an Asus nv550jv Does anyone have any solution? Or any way to toggle my graphics card's power state? Thanks.

May be you can elaborate on what did not work in the thread that you followed. – nik90 Nov 7 '13 at 12:17
I followed it, and I continued to get the exact same error described initially. – mrpick95 Nov 7 '13 at 12:39
