       optirun - run programs on the discrete video card


       optirun [OPTION]... command [command options...]


       Run an application using the discrete video card.

              run a program even if the nvidia card is unavailable

              do not run a program if the nvidia card is unavailable

              do not start secondary X server (implies -b none)

       -b, --bridge METHOD
              acceleration/displaying bridge to use. Valid values are auto, virtualgl and primus.
              The --vgl-* options only make sense when using  the  virtualgl  bridge,  while  the
              --primus-*  options  apply  only when using the primus bridge.  Additionally, value
              none is recognized, and  its  effect  is  to  add  paths  to  driver  libraries  to
              LD_LIBRARY_PATH (useful for nvidia-settings and CUDA applications)

       -c, --vgl-compress METHOD
              image  compression  or transport to use with VirtualGL. Valid values for METHOD are
              proxy, jpeg, rgb, xv and yuv. Changing this setting  may  affect  performance,  CPU
              usage and image quality

       --vgl-options OPTS
              a  space-separated  list  of  command  options  to  be passed to vglrun. Useful for
              debugging virtualgl by passing options to it like  +tr.  These  OPTS  override  the
              settings from optirun so be careful with setting it

       --primus-ldpath PATH
              a colon-separated list of paths which are searched for the primus

       -q, --quiet, --silent
              suppresses all logging messages

       -v, --verbose
              increase  the  verbosity level of log messages. It can be specified up to two times
              (or five if --quiet is used)

              show all logging messages by setting the verbosity level to the maximum

       -C, --config FILE
              retrieve settings for Bumblebee from FILE

       -d, --display VDISPLAY
              find the Bumblebee X server on VDISPLAY.  Do  not  confuse  this  option  with  the
              DISPLAY environment variable. By default, PATH is queried from the daemon

       -l, --ldpath PATH
              libraries  like  are  searched in PATH (useful for the nvidia driver). By
              default, PATH is queried from the

       -s, --socket FILENAME
              use FILENAME for communication with the daemon

       -h, --help
              display this help and exit

              output version information and exit


       optirun glxspheres
              Runs the graphics demo supplied with Virtual GL.

       optirun -c yuv glxspheres
              Runs a program with the yuv transport method for better performance.

       optirun firefox
              Run a program with arguments.
