I'm running an optimus enabled laptop. I installed bumblebee and everything seems to work great. However I'm confused what i should do next. Should i install the nvidia drivers for my computer or would that screw everything up?

Thanks for your help!

No, the drivers are already installed as a dependency of Bumblebee, no more drivers should be installed after that.

Then how do i configure nvidia settings? Or are those settings defined by bumblebee? – Fawkes5 Oct 29 '11 at 22:44
Have a look at all this post, i believe its the best information around about bumblebee and it clearlly says to not install the driver after bumblebee. gl – Bruno Pereira Oct 29 '11 at 22:55
