Recently I tried to Game, however two issues have been getting in my way.

One was the Steam libraries that has been documented elsewhere. The second problem I haven’t been able to overcome. It seems to be an issue with nvidia-utils/nvidia drivers.

System: MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K
Graphics: Nvidia 870M with Bumblebee / Optimus and proprietary nvidia drivers.

Games: Any steam game


primus: fatal: failed to load any of the libraries: /usr/lib/nvidia/
/usr/lib/nvidia/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Optirun complains about other things, but it is not that helpful for debugging.

Ok, so lets checkout that directory:

 > tree /usr/lib/nvidia/ | sift libGL      Wed 15 Jun 2016 09:13:29 PM CDT

Mhhhh :/

Ok, so this next part is aweful since I just wanted to play.

 > sudo cp /usr/lib/nvidia/ /usr/lib/nvidia/

And it works! Ok, so how can I make myself not cringe so much at the fix? Should I have linked it instead of copying it?
