I am quite interested in installing Bumblebee-UI in Ubuntu 12.04 after seeing this video on youtube. Link to video

Has anyone been able to install it successfully?

  • Install Git:

    sudo apt-get install git
  • Make a directory for git:

    mkdir git
    cd git
  • Check out the repository:

    git clone https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bumblebee-ui.git
    cd bumblebee-ui
    sudo ./INSTALL
  • Go to Startup Applications and add /usr/local/bin/bumblebee-indicator.

  • This won't work out of the box, because it doesn't follow python best practices for installation. – airtonix Mar 7 '15 at 1:22
  • The repository no longer exists, so unfortunately this doesn't work anymore. – RPiAwesomeness Apr 2 '16 at 20:27

sorry, but the answer is clear and simple


  • Have you done it successfully? – belacqua May 24 '12 at 22:50
