Optirun <application> not showing erros on logs but also not appearing in the external monitor #362
Distro: Kali Linux (Kali GNU/Linux 1.0 \n \l)
BumbleBee Version: optirun (Bumblebee) 3.0.1
Then I've installed BumbleBee successfully using the guidelines from here: http://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee
I'm able to run optirun and it uses my nVidia card as displayed in the output (shortened) from the command: optirun glxgears -info:
GL_RENDERER = GeForce GT 540M/PCIe/SSE2
I don't want nVidia to start in boot time, I just need to open applications in my external monitor, so I did everything from here (extra screen part) https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee/wiki/Multi-monitor-setup
Then, it seems to run fine, I do "optirun true", then export the DISPLAY to :8 as said in the link above but... nothing appears in my external monitor.
Here's the optirun output:
I'm asking your help because my problem seems different. I don't have any error message in any logs so it's complicated to debug. And my problem didn't seems to fit in any "problem report" that I have read.
Please help me.
