    Default the inverse NVIDIA problem

    Hi everyone.

    I have the "inverse" nvidia" problem. glxinfo, glxgears, glxspheres64 run with optimus but they do not without it:

    Code:
    mimis@goldberg:~$ glxgears
    Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
    Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
    but


    Code:
    mimis@goldberg:~$ optirun glxgears
    3907 frames in 5.0 seconds = 781.251 FPS
    3920 frames in 5.0 seconds = 783.966 FPS
    3824 frames in 5.0 seconds = 764.614 FPS
    Other information:

    Code:
    mimis@goldberg:~$ uname -a
    Linux goldberg.site 3.13.6-1.g4727218-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Mar 7 07:30:35 UTC 2014 (4727218) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    /var/log/nvidia-installer.log says:
    Code:
    -> 'NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64' (version: 334.21) appears to be installed correctly.
    The problem also shows up here:

    My problem is that whenever I run the Dassault/DraftSight (graphics vector drawing) with optirun the machine freezes very quickly (impossible to work).

    Any ideas to work this around ?

    P.S. I followed the steps in
    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...ght=GPU+driver
    for the installation (with some minor modifications)
