Hello, I am having problems with bumblebee, on my installation of Mint 14. Previously, everything worked exactly as it should. I had bumblebee, as well as primus, and they worked well. (I do some GPU programming) However, bumblebee wouldn't start on boot, so I had to start it with
In my attempt to fix this (I'm not sure of everything I did), I seem to have broken bumblebee beyond repair. If I run the above command, I get a report saying bumblebee has started:
$ sudo service bumblebeed start
, however, if I then try to use it:
bumblebeed start/running, process 20882
And if I try to run just
$ optirun glxgears

It claims no video card exists. I have however, not changed my drivers at all from when it worked. I have tried multiple reinstalls of bumblebee, bumblebee-nvidia, my linux headers, but nothing seems to have any impact. Any ideas?
