Use the Installation guide. Make sure that Secure Boot is disabled in the BIOS. For video output on Xorg see the Xorg configuration section.



The Intel device needs to be specified in the Xorg config. Create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf with the following contents (or add it to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf).

Section "Device"
   Identifier "Intel Graphics"
   Driver "intel"
   BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
   Option "TearFree" # Not required but helpful


Bumblebee seems to work fine with the proprietary NVIDIA drivers. Follow the Bumblebee installation guide. You might need to set the PCI bus (showed in lspci) in /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia.


PRIME does not seem to be working properly. The 3D device shows use as the Quadro P500 but performance is the same as the Intel GPU. Not sure what's going on there.


Nvidia-xrun seems to be working properly, even with Bumblebee set up. To use it you just need go to other tty and run nvivia-xrun.

Smartcard reader

For the smartcard reader to work you need to install pcsclite. You can test it by running pcsc_scan as root (you need pcsc-tools installed).
