Ubuntu 16.04 of course supports hybrid graphics solutions, especially notebooks that have intel graphics and NVIDIA graphics with Optimus support. Do NOT install bumblebee, it is not under development anymore, the latest version is from April 2013. The solution to switch between the two graphics today is nvidia-prime, which is available in the official ...
Maybe you don't need to install Bumblebee but just some propriatory graphics drivers to enable the Optimus technique for some supported computers. See this question with a link to the official Ubuntu wiki page.
The bumblebee version in the repos and the default nvidia-361 driver do not work. You either have to install an older nvidia driver and manually edit multiple config files or install bumblebee and nvidia drivers from ppa's and also manually edit files. The alternative is to use nvidia-prime to switch graphics drivers but this requires that you log out ...
I got it working after some trying (nvidia-364, from ubuntu graphics ppa). sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-364 sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia primus linux-headers-generic sudo systemctl enable bumblebeed After that sudo gedit /etc/modules and add 2 lines: i915 bbswitch ...
Still nothing on the vsync problem. We'll need kernel 4.5, xorg patch (1.19) and nvidia patch. You can follow up the thread here. https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/775691/linux/vsync-issue-nvidia-prime-ux32vd-with-gt620-m-/3
If anyone is coming here with Ubuntu 14.04 with Unity, one easy way to recreate your monitors.xml file is to just go to System Settings -> Displays -> click Apply
Bumblebee had no development since 2013 and is deprecated in 16.04, installation of nvidia-361 and nvidia-prime should take care of the bumblebee functionality. pilot6 gave the usage details here. Don't let the "it's broken" comment influence you. There were lots of improvements in the meantime.
You install wrong drivers. Remove the legacy driver and install the correct driver this way: sudo apt purge 'nvidia.*' sudo apt install nvidia-361 nvidia-prime Reboot.
Today I managed to install 3 screens (2 monitors + laptop screen0 by simply removing the bumblebee package and installing fresh version of Nvidia drivers 352.63 sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 One important thing: After reboot go to Display panel and line all monitors up so that the laptop is on left end (maybe it also works on the right end), anyway in ...
You have a very new GPU, so install and use the latest official stable NVIDIA drivers 361. Replace bumblebee with nvidia-prime to switch between the two graphics solutions. Uninstall every currently installed NVIDIA software and remove the bumblebee as well. Open a terminal and execute : sudo apt-get purge nvidia* '^bumblebee.*' sudo reboot ...
I tried to try your commands but I get a lot of "SCHED ERROR" and after all I could not open my computer. What Should I do now?
Use nvidia-prime instead of bumblebee and to make sure that everything works as expected, remove all NVIDIA software and the bumblebee packages as well. Because you have quite new graphics hardware, it might be a good idea to install the latest official stable NVIDIA drivers. Open a terminal and execute these commands : sudo apt-get purge nvidia* ...
