I recently installed bumblebee in order to use my discrete graphics card instead of the Intel integrated one. Now I'm left with a machine booting into a black screen. I unmistakeable bumblebee again but that did no good.

The weird thing is that there are no errors in that log file.



Anyone got an idea?

Please rename your Xorg.conf. Bumblebee has his own xorg.config, in /etc/bumblebee/ as far as I know named xorg.conf.nvidia So you overwrite it. Have you edit the /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf ?

## Section with nvidia driver specific options, only parsed if Driver=nvidia
# Module name to load, defaults to Driver if empty or unset
# colon-separated path to the nvidia libraries
# comma-separated path of the directory containing nvidia_drv.so and the
# default Xorg modules path

For the xxx you mußt write the instalt Version.

Example (352 oder 340-updates)

Reboot. I hope I could explain it well and it works.
