Is there a known combination of Ubuntu 13.10 + NVidia driver + bumblebee that works with an Optimus NVidia laptop? I have a Dell Latitude E6530 laptop with an Intel i7 CPU + integrated GPU + NVidia NVS 5200M Optimus card.

I've tried a few combinations from various suggested repos but nothing works for me so far.

lspci -v outputs:

I cannot (E6430 here), but you can do a lspci -v and post more detail about your NVidia graphics card. –  Elliott Frisch Mar 26 at 14:52

Please edit your question to include that.... it'll help anyone with the same question and I think it'll help you get an answer faster (not everyone reads the comments). –  Elliott Frisch Mar 26 at 15:32

Dell Inspiron 15z: i7-3537U + Nvidia 630M + nvidia-304 + bumblebee-nvidia 3.2.1-3. Works great without needing further configuration! :D –  dadexix86 Mar 28 at 8:57
    
Have you just tried it? –  Braiam Mar 28 at 21:39
