I'm new on Ubuntu 14.04, and I was trying to find out how to run primusrun command (Bumblebee) on Steam for Windows games simulated with Wine 1.6.2. I have searched many forums and could not find the answer. My computer is a L502x with Optimus Nvidia Technology.

I Hope someone can help me, I will wait for the answers.

I thought it is look alike Wine command, not Bumblebee. – swift Jul 1 '14 at 7:31

You may have a Steam shortcut on your desktop. If so, you can right click on that shortcut, select Properties, and modify the command to include primusrun. You should insert it just before the wine command, with a space to either side of primusrun

Configure Steam to use primusrun
