I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and I have an Intel GPU and an Nvidia GPU. Previously I had installed the latest Nvidia driver for my Nvidia GPU, however, my computer was only using that GPU and ignoring the other. I am using
cuda to run neural network projects and when training some large networks I ran into a lack of memory issue with the GPU. So to remedy this I thought Bumblebee would allow me to have more control over how I use my GPU's. HUGE MISTAKE
I followed the guide on Ubuntu wiki to install Bumblebee from this following the steps:
Enable the Universe and Multiverse repositories in order to allow the bumblebee and Nvidia packages to be installed:
sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia primus linux-headers-generic
However after rebooting my screen was black. I could still hear the login sound that it makes when the login screen shows up.
Luckily I am dual booting windows on this computer, so I still have half a computer, that is how I am writing this question.
At this point, I do not care about Bumblebee anymore and I would just like to uninstall it so that I can use Ubuntu again. How can I do that if my screen is black?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
