I'm trying to get bumblebee to work running Ubuntu 15.04. I've followed this guide to get to the point I am now, but I'm getting an error that I couldn't even google the way out of it.

This is what I get from primusrun glxinfo | grep OpenGL:

demencia@demencia-laptop:~$ primusrun glxinfo | grep OpenGL
primus: fatal: Bumblebee daemon reported: error: [XORG] (EE) Failed to load module "mouse" (module does not exist, 0)

But I was told that that error is not really important that I should have a look at my /var/log/Xorg.8.log, where I found my dead end.

Here's my /var/log/Xorg.8.log file.

Any ideas?


Just edit the file /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia to include the following screen-section to make bumblebee work:

Section "Screen"
  Identifier "Default Screen"
  Device "DiscreteNvidia"

(To open the file for editing, run sudo gedit /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia )

After a restart of bumblebee, it works properly.

  • Thank you for taking your time for this answer, I hope it helps someone some time, I'm back on Arch and having no problems with hybrid graphics. – Ag Ponzio Jun 24 '16 at 14:22
