Step-by step menginstall Bumblebee 3.0 “Tumbleweed”.

(read this until the end before you install Bumblebee 3.0)

(Pengalaman dengan ASUS N43SL-i7-GT540M-8GB-640GB)


a. driver nvidia belum terinstall. Bila driver nvidia sudah di install maka harus di remove terlebih dahulu.

$> sudo apt-get –purge remove nvidia*

delete juga file xorg.conf yang ada di /etc/X11/

$> sudo rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf

1. Add a PPA containing recent drivers as the one in the Natty repository is outdated:

$> sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates

2. Add the Stable Bumblebee Releases PPA and install Bumblebee using the proprietary NVIDIA driver:

$> sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable

$> sudo apt-get update

$> sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia

3. If you have 32-bit applications like Wine, and run 11.10 Oneiric or later, you will need extra libraries:

$> sudo apt-get install virtualgl-libs:i386

4. Allow yourself to use Bumblebee by adding yourself to the ‘bumblebee’ group. (replace $USER by your username)

$> sudo usermod -a -G bumblebee $USER

misalkan usernya adalah setyanto. : sudo usermod -a -G bumblebee setyanto

untuk mengecek user : ketikkan $> id (enter) akan terlihat id pada laptop anda.

5. Now to get the most up to date Nvidia driver package to rebuild a driver that works with your latest Xorg and kernel, create a new directory* to hold the Nvidia package sources and change into it, and type:

$> sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall -y

$> sudo apt-get build-dep nvidia-current -y

$> apt-get source nvidia-current

ini akan mendownload graphic driver nvidia yang nvidia-current, bila anda mau yang update, bisa dibuat nvidia-current-updates.

*create directory will done automatically.

6. Now with the source downloaded and all dependencies installed, we can build a new driver and install it:

$> cd nvidia-graphics-drivers*

$> dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -nc

$> cd ..

$> sudo dpkg -i nvidia-current*.deb

7. If all went well, you have your new Nvidia driver instaled. Lets see if it loads Ok:

$> sudo modprobe nvidia_current

If you get no error, then we can go to the next step.

8. Edit /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia

replace DFP by CRT-0 in the line with ConnectedMonitor

8. The Bumblebee configuration must be modified to work with all this cutting edge stuff, so lets start by turning off the

Bumblebee service:

$> sudo stop bumblebeed

9. Open bumblebee.conf

$> sudo gedit /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf

10. In the [bumblebeed] section, set Driver=nvidia

11. In the [driver-nvidia] section, set KernelDriver=nvidia_current and in both LibraryPath

Save the file after all the changes have been complete, (:wq) and start the bumblebee service again:

$> sudo start bumblebeed

12. reboot now.

13. while reboot ……pray and pray dan pray….

14. test bumblebe using :

$> optirun glxgears

(pada waktu eksekusi nya akan diam sejenak, jangan khawatir). lihat perbedaannya dengan

$> glxgears

Have a nice fun with bumblebee…!!!
