I'm fairly new to Linux and I'm currently running Linux Mint 13 (based on Ubuntu 12.04). I'm trying to install Bumblebee with preferably the latest stable Nvidia 319 drivers on my Asus R505CB (this specs, but with GT740M instead of the GT635M).
I've been trying a lot of things the past two days without succes. With Nouveau only the integrated graphics are working and when I install any version of the nVidia driver (both via the nVidia website and PPA's) Cinnamon can't start and I get this error when I start NVIDIA X Server Settings:
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run
nvidia-xconfigas root), and restart the X server.
Now, trying to install Bumblebee once again I see I apparently overlooked this line on this wiki:
If on 12.04.3, replace linux-headers-generic with linux-headers-generic-lts-raring.
How do I do this? I have currently installed the 3.12 Linux kernel (had 3.2, which was default).
1) I guess I have to use this 3.8 kernel instead of the 3.12 version to make bumblebee work?
2) When I tried installing it, it installed these packages:
But it doesn't place a .bin file in the /boot folder so when i run sudo update-grub it wouldn't detect this 3.8 kernel and I'm still using the 3.2 version with which I can't get the Bumblebee daemon started.
What to do?
I'm sure I forgot to say something... :p
Thanks in advance,
