    Bumblebee 3.1 is not wokring properly, 12.04

    Hellou,

    I read now a lot of threads concerning bumblebee, but unfortunately
    nothing helped me so far.

    The problem:

    optirun -vv glxspheres causes
    Code:
    [ 3027.301326] [DEBUG]Reading file: /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf
    [ 3027.301899] [ERROR]The Bumblebee daemon has not been started yet or the socket path /var/run/bumblebee.socket was incorrect.
    [ 3027.301936] [DEBUG]Socket closed.
    [ 3027.301966] [ERROR]Could not connect to bumblebee daemon - is it running?
    .

    What I did prior:

    • installing nvidia-current from x-swat ppa
    • installing linux-headers-generic
    • installing bumblebee, bumblebee-nvidia, bbswitch


    One time, version 3.1 did work, when
    1. purge bbswitch
    2. reinstall nvidia-current
    3. install bbswitch

    I had to add me to the bumblebee group, which I never had to do
    before, but it was working to the next reboot.

    Before, bumblebee 3.0 was working on 12.10 and 12.04 perfect.

    I'm thankful for any advice.

    Update:
    It is now working, when I start the bumblebee service manually.

    Code:
    sudo start bumblebeed
    I played a lot around before I stumbled upon this solution posted
    in the bumblebee-wiki. (https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project...bee/issues/335)
    But I mainly repeated all the steps I did before again, and again..
    I really hate fans.

    But now its working. Manually.
