[http://www.martin-juhl.dk/ Martin Juhl] started with the project and published under GPL v3 and now continues with [Ironhide] (deprecated). To improve co-operation, developers decided to fork the project into a team: [http://Bumblebee-Project/ Bumblebee-Project].

-
=== Installation ===
+
-
Bumblebee 2.4 and before was written in Bash and has now been superseded by Bumblebee 3.0, which is written in C.
+
-
Many distributions are supported, including Arch Linux, Debian, Mandriva and Ubuntu. For the latest installation
+
-
instructions, see http://wiki.bumblebee-project.org/Install-and-usage.
+
-
 
+
-
Ubuntu users (especially when upgrading) see [http://askubuntu.com/q/36930/6969 How well do laptops with Nvidia Optimus work?]
+
-
 
+
-
=== Testing ===
+
-
You can compare display performances with and without bumblebee :
+
-
<pre>glxgears
+
-
optirun glxgears</pre>
+
-
 
+
-
Note: when running just glxgears, if you see this message:
+
-
<pre>Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
+
-
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.</pre>
+
-
The FPS value will always be close to 60.  Instead you should do:
+
-
<pre>vblank_mode=0 glxgears</pre>
+
-
 
+
-
===Configure it===
+
-
On versions prior to 2.3, you had to run <tt>bumblebee-configuration</tt> to configure Bumblebee. Newer versions automatically detect the right version for you.
+
-
 
+
-
===Uninstalling===
+
-
If you've installed Bumblebee through your package manager, remove it using your package manager.
+
-
==== Source ====
+
-
If you're really using an old version (from MrMEEE, versions prior to 2.3), you are screwed.
+
-
If you have installed Bumblebee 2.4 from git, run `bumblebee-uninstall`.
+
-
Version 3.0 and later can be uninstalled from the source directory by running `make uninstall`.
+
-
 
+
-
===Reporting bugs===
+
-
Run '''bumblebee-bugreport''' and follow the instructions, bugs or feature requests can be reported at http://Bumblebee-Project.org/issues.
