Ubuntu: GLX on NVIDIA Optimus, Ubuntu 12.04



Question:

I have a laptop that has an NVIDIA Optimus graphic card setup. I have tried running Minecraft on that laptop, and the game crashes after login, with the following error:

org.lwjgl.LWJGLException: Could not init GLX  

I tried to update my drivers, but no driver update was available. I searched for people asking the same question and I found none, hence the following question:

Is it possible to enable GLX on NVIDIA Optimus? If yes, how to?

Thank you in advance.

Edit:
More information about the graphic card

Solution:1

Your video card based on the Intel chips.
I suggest you refer to Bumblebee project support:

Ubuntu Wiki: Bumblebee
Bumblebee project page: Installing Bumblebee 3.0
