    ​Ubuntu has nvidia-prime support directly, why dont you use the packaged versions? Bumblebee is crap, slow as hell.
    bumblebee is crap? nvidia-prime with horrible tearing is not a solution, with bumblebee i don't have any tearing.

      Its correct, until the PRIME patches from Nvidia are integrated you have got tearing. But tell me please which game runs faster with bumblebee than without. Preferred with benchmarks.

        who cares about if it's fast or not? if is impossible to gaming with the tearing and lack of vsync, ugly ugly tearing and even when we have a 100 fps against 60 from bumblebee the game looks much better with only 60 or 50

          Plus, I don't see the point in prime. You can just use the nvidia card, it's not like there's a world of difference in power consumption.

          No you can't.

          In order do shave off 2$-3$ of manufacturing costs, the vast majority of notebooks do not have the hardware capability to switch in bios from igp to dgpu.
          They are 'hardwired' for optimus and there's nothing you can do about it, except use bumblebee which is an experimental pile of crap.

          The vast majority of people use 'gaming' notebooks not desktops and they can't 'switch' to the dgpu.

              Yeah, that sucks. My guess this is done because of the $2-3, but to cut down on support costs. The BIOS is one of the primary reasons I hate laptops.
              But what I meant is set the Nvidia driver to prefer rendering using the Nvidia card.

                Debian Sid: Umm, with libglvnd+nvidia, Unigine Valley works but Steam does not start... back to the drawing board.

                  There is a bug in libglvnd + __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS=1, see:
                  https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Dota-2/issues/756 for a fix.

                    Yeah saw that already although that's about games on Steam and not the Steam client itself, I'll reinstall to test asap.

                    /LE:
                    Code:
                    __GLVND_DISALLOW_PATCHING=1 exe
                    fixes Steam and compton

                      Is that the one where the SDDM splash screen overlays the Plasma 5 Desktop. Or the black screen of doom?? :-)
                      I presuming your taking about the Qt5 libraries built with egl / gles2 support - in place of desktop gl?

                      Ahhh, you've got to love Plasma 5 - whilst you hurriedly look for an alternative desktop...
