Problem with bumblebee (NVIDIA Optimus on Linux)
I am having problems starting the game with primusrun (and optirun) through Steam by specifying the parameters: "primusrun %command%". I can hear the music, mouse pointer changes to in-game one, but the screen turns either solid white, solid black or sometimes semi-transparent, so I can still see my desktop. Other games run fine with this method.

The funny thing is that if I go to the game directory and type "primusrun ./ns2_linux32" (while Steam is running), it works just fine, so I know it is able to. It it just annoying that it cannot be started through Steam. Any ideas?

I am running Debian Sid 64-bit with NVIDIA driver 331.49 as packaged by Debian.

Anybody? I honestly do not think it is primus, but rather a problem with Steam. Though I cannot test the game without primus, because it refuses to start on Intel graphics.

I'm using optirun with this command:
optirun -b primus

seems to work quite well
