    The Mesa-demo package needs to be installed for glxinfo utility IIRC. Anyway, since you mention laptop you'll need to pursue Bumblebee installation.

    BTW, the following 'how to' might also be of interest to you

    It discusses using nvidia-prime as an alternative to bumblebee. I'll leave it to you to evaluate, but just wanted you to be aware of it.

    OK

    Code:
    windsoarer@linux-wi19:~> glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer"
    OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile
    So I'll get my hands dirty as gogalthorp said, and will install the bumblebee or nvidia-prime solutions.

    Thanks
