Nvidia Optimus - Alert / Warning - Bumblebee
Hi All,

i saw many instances where people have installed Nvidia drivers without bumblebee and have broken their system.

Do you believe a warning / alert for optimus graphics cards under Additional drivers in Ubuntu / Mint or perhaps even in Steam will help in user awareness and prevent breakage of system.

It could also indicate the availability of bumblebee with a necessary caveat that it unofficially supports the optimus enabled cards.

P.S.

1. I shall put forth the idea in features requests / bugs, if there are many who consent this.
2. If you're a Mint user, you could support the idea here as well.
