• Bumblebee optirun problems

    Hello, i’m new in the community.
    I tried to install bumblebee, but when i try to run

     optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8

    i get those errors:

    [  209.533987] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) Screen 1 deleted because of no matching config section.
    [  209.534027] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.

    My Xorg logs are:

    The loaded graphic drivers modules are:
    lsmod | grep -E ‘nvidia|intel|nouveau’

    How can i resolve those issues?
    Thanks for the help

  • When I installed Bumblebee several months ago, I used this documentation and everything works fine:


    Maybe it helps you.


  • @FiloSvR , hi and welcome to our community. :+1:
    There s a tutorial in our Wiki. Does it help?

  • I followed both tutorials, but i had the same problems.
    I tried to blacklist the intel graphic card in order to use only the nvidia one, but it didn’t work. I think that the laptop cant recognize the external card, but i don’t know why.
    Do you know which log can i watch?

  • @FiloSvR
    Are you sure you have uninstalled nouveau? Also remember to block it (just in case).


  • Doing

    Lsmod | grep nouveau 

    Nothing appear and I have the minimal configuration under
    and I don’t have

    Id like to test the pc only with Nvidia card, but I don’t know how to do it
