I have the Y510p with 755M/i7/8GB RAM and dual-booting Win 8.1/Ubuntu 13.10. I spent about 30 hours trying to get the Nvidia card working properly and finally I have uninstalled all drivers and I'm running only Intel card now. The only thing that worked properly for me was installing nvidia-331 nvidia-settings-331 and nvidia-prime and than purging bumblebee ...

Checkout my scripts to enable/disable external monitors: Installation: # You will need latest NVIDIA drivers installed. At the time of writing, version is 331.20. # On ubuntu 13.10, it looks like this: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-331 # Now we need to install bumblebee: sudo ...

I have the y510p. 12.04 was workable at best. Framerates were ok in glxgears and such. Bumblebee with the Nvidia and the Nouveau driver both worked, albeit fairly low framerates. The challenge at this stage of the game is the Nvidia linux support for the 755m card in the laptop.

I found out by trial that the bbswitch daemon alone can only turn the power on for the card. The driver is not loaded and card is not functional. Installing bumblebee is the solution. If uninstalling bbswitch manually doesn't work (using "purge bbswitch-dkms") bumblebee will uninstall it automatically. Other things I found out by experience: sometimes ...

I followed the instructions of Chris's answer, typing following commands (Just after having installed ubuntu): sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get purge nvidia sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable sudo add-apt-repository ...

You are installing nvidia twice. apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia pulls in the current nvidia package. Also, you only need to install one version of bumblebee, not both. Remove bumblebee. bumblebee-nvidia, and the nvidia driver, then run apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia primus. That should fix the issue.

Excellent question. I'm planning to update to 14.04 soon, and as far as I can tell right now, nvidia-prime is still a step backwards. Luckily, bumblebee is still available in the repo and the screenclone patch should be part of the regular driver.

Nvidia support for Linux is actually terrible, my first laptop with Nvidia optimus made me lose 1 week to properly install the first version of bumblebee. Bumblebee only runs a program if you ask it to, with the optirun or primusrun. You can uninstall bumblebee and install it easily again, but I don't think there is a way to disable it since you need to ...

I am not sure if this answers your question. But i find nvidia-prime could be a welcome relief to the crowd who have an nvidia card with optimus , and have no way to switch between an optimus setting/ non optimus setting like you can . In case of my laptop , which is the Dell XPS 15 L502X, i cannot switch modes in BIOS , and nvidia-prime let me use my ...

An answer to anyone also having this problem: install the nvidia-331 drivers! http://www.muktware.com/2013/12/install-nvidia-331-bumblebee-optimus-cards/18271 I'm running on Clevo W350ST/Sager NP7352, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS x64, with an Optimus Nvidia GTX 765M. It took me forever to figure this out, so hopefully this can help someone.

I would stay away from all drivers 319 version.Maybe you want to install latest drivers from Nvidia corporation for a change. These are a few links for drivers for your video card, GT 420m, which is a GeForce 400M series for Notebooks. These are the latest drivers for Linux 32bit: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/73965/en-us ...
