Install Bumblebee 3.0 – “Tumbleweed” in Ubuntu 10.04.4 – EeePC 1215N

Currently, you need to open your terminal and enter the commands below.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable

If you are on Ubuntu 11.04 or older and want newer drivers (recommended) than the ones available in the official repos, run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update

To install Bumblebee using the proprietary nvidia driver:

sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia
sudo usermod -a -G bumblebee $USER

(change $USER to your username) and reboot or re-login.
If you intend to run 32-bit programs like Wine and using Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric or later, install 32-bit libraries with:

sudo apt-get install virtualgl-libs:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libc6:i386
