Bumblebee doesn't recognizes my graphic card,

$ lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 630M] (rev a1)

I have tried installing Bumblebee with the nouveau driver:

sudo apt-get install bumblebee primus

And with the nvidia driver, but i have always the same error:

sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia primus

I have also installed the linux-headers:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

And fore the ACPI mode in the grub, but the error still:

$ optirun blender
[  769.988591] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) No devices detected.
[  769.988627] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.

$ optirun -vv blender
