Im dual booting linux and windows on my Sony F1521KSNB (1.8GHz Intel Core 3rd Gen i5 processor, 4GB RAM,NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M ). I realized Ubuntu wasnt using my Nvidia chip and googled to find out more. Then I came across bumblebee. I did a fresh installation of Ubuntu 13.10 and then followed this https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee to install it. After rebooting i get this error after I type
[ 1040.265565] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver [ 1040.265688] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.
I then googled a lot followed a lot of answers in askubuntu and other sites but to no avail. Any working solution is appreacted .
Steps i took includes this and others.Nothing seems to work.
sudo gedit /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf
On the bottom of the first section you find Driver= change it to Driver=nvidia further down: ## Section with nvidia driver specific options, only parsed if Driver=nvidia [driver-nvidia] # Module name to load, defaults to Driver if empty or unset KernelDriver=nvidia-current ------> Change to KernelDriver=nvidia Module=nvidia PMMethod=auto
