After that I noticed that kde effects doesn't work. glxgears throw error (that I don't remember now), but under optirun glxgears run (and gave about 600 fps - I have dell q15r with nvidia gt525m).
    After that I saw link to this thread. I thought that if I already have nvidia drivers, next step will be "Fix the Intel/Mesa driver", so I did that. After reboot I have kde rotated 180 and mirror effect ;p I googled for that and there are hundred lines of text on bug trackers, forums etc. I don't want to waste time for reading all this So my question is - is there any simple way to get rid of this problem? For now, i'm tired of this and I go to sleep. Any help will be appreciated.

    OK, I fixed this by removing drivers from nvidia installer. I copied scripts for my laptop:
    Code:
    dell:/usr/bin # cp /usr/share/doc/packages/bumblebee/examples/bumblebee-enablecard.dell.InspironN5110.XPSL702X bumblebee-enablecard
    dell:/usr/bin # cp /usr/share/doc/packages/bumblebee/examples/bumblebee-disablecard.dell.InspironN5110.XPSL702X bumblebee-disablecard
    But I can run something under optirun only once. For second time I get:
    Code:
    coolmax@dell:~> optirun glxinfo
    _PS0 Enabling nVidia card succeeded.                                                                                          
    FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/3.1.9-1.4-desktop/weak-updates/updates/nvidia.ko): No such device

    _PS3 Disabling nVidia card succeeded.
    I have yet to test it.

    Wow!!!! Really great how to and this addition from frostmyname, swyear and futadict really helped a lot. In fact, it makes it works like a charm.

    Here's the output I have :

    Hi guys, first of all I want to thank thermalgrease for posting such a great guide. It helped me a lot and now I can use openSUSE in my Acer Aspire 5750G and have all the nvidia geforce capabilities.

    I want to ask too what if I keep nvidia repository active and it installs a new version of the nvidia driver? Last time it did i couldn't get bumblebee to work again, glxinfo returned me missing display message (or something like that, I can't remember it well right now) on bot glxinfo and optirun glxinfo, so I formatted and reinstalled openSUSE, installed bumblebee and disabled nvidia repository

    So, what can I if i want to upgrade my nvidia drivers to not crash bumblebee again?

    Thanks a lot and my apologies for my poor English because it's not my native language

    This worked for me! Thx a lot!
    But I had to change somethings: instead of moved, i copied. And some folder were differents.

    Check below.

    Code:
    mkdir -p /usr/lib64/nvidia/xorg/modules/updates/extensions
    cp /usr/X11R6/lib64-nvidia/libGL* /usr/lib64/nvidia/
    cp /usr/lib64/xorg-nvidia/modules/updates/extensions/libglx* /usr/lib64/nvidia/xorg/modules/updates/extensions/
    mkdir -p /usr/lib/nvidia
    cp /usr/X11R6/lib-nvidia/libGL* /usr/lib/nvidia
    Another error: the /usr/bin/bumblebee-enablecard script returns a problem at line 35. I edited it and removed the "-current" it was there.

    Thanks that was very helpful
    once the nvidia part did not work (optirun glxinfo | grep OpenGL)
    But it did after reconfiguring

    bumblebee-configuration

    The post from other forums did not work but your's did.
    Thanks Once Again!

    Thank you for this, I didn't even have a concept that Optimus existed, and was trying to figure out why I couldn't get my graphics to work. Iadded the repo and installed bumblebee, and it seems to be working until I got to here:

    optirun glxinfo | grep OpenGL
    Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual

    I've got a new ASUS N75S with a GeForce GT555M in it. I've gone through the /usr/lib64/nvidia/ steps, and gotten the glx part to work, but this part still eludes me. There wasn't any errors in the Xorg.8.log either. Any suggestions?

    Sorry, it's late for me. I meant there aren't any errors, and upon closer inspection, I did find a warning:
    [ 1512.689] (WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display device DFP-0's EDID; cannot compute DPI
    [ 1512.689] (WW) NVIDIA(0): from DFP-0's EDID.


    I suspected that wasn't relevant since there isn't an actual display we're sending this too, but just in case I wanted to paste it.

    I don't know if that's the case, but whenever I update drivers, first install gets display not found or not displays found when I run the test, and I need to force drivers to reinstall to get it to work, maybe you need to do it too
