Ubuntu – How to install Nvidia 319.12 driver on an optimus system


I have a Samsung NP550 system with Nvidia Geforce GT650M. I have installed bumblebee 3.2.1 and "nvidia-304, 304.88, 3.8.0-19-generic" drivers are loaded for me. However I would like to update to latest 319.12 driver. I heard that this supports optimus natively here.

How can I install this driver? Do I have to remove bumblebee and install it or install it along bumblebee?

Try installing the new beta version of Nvidia 319.12 with bumblebee.

sudo apt-get remove bumblebee-nvidia nvidia-current nvidia-settings

sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319
