I had the same problem. It seems you have to replace all hyphens with underscores in KernelDriver=nvidia-346-updates in /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf. So it should be KernelDriver=nvidia_346_updates

For anyone out there who still is in this situation, I upgraded to Ubuntu 15.04 and it looks lots better. I still haven't set up full prime support, but I do have 1600x900 resolution again (couldn't get more than 1024x768 with 14.04 or 14.10.). --kevin

Run glxinfo |grep string If you get this OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc. Then, it looks like I had exactly the same problem: the intel cpu-integrated graphics didn't use intel drivers.

I think the problem is that current version of Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu does not support this card. You can try to install a newer version. Run in terminal. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-346 sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa Also it makes sense to upgrade kernel and graphical stack ...

I finally have this working in a repeatable way. I have the w540, ultra docking station and 3 displays (monitors are all the same brand). I have the DVI and VGA from the docking station, and then the VGA port on the laptop itself. The big change for me is that if I leave the lid open and then hit F7, it all works smoothly. If I close the lid it causes lag. ...

This might be just what you need: https://github.com/beidl/prime-indicator They say "Indicator applet for Ubuntu 14.04 laptop users with NVIDIA/Intel switchable graphics" but there is a good chance that it might also work for your version of Ubuntu.

Setting TurnCardOffAtExit to false in /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf fixes the issue. The card will not be turned off during shutdown.
