    Unhappy Optimus install problems.

    I've been trying to get Kali and my laptop (with an Nvidia Optimus GPU) to work together but I can not figure it out.

    I have Kali 64bit installed on a partition and dual booted with Windows.

    List of guides I have tried:
    These ones seem the most promising and they are the ones that I am currently using:
    PHP Code:

    https://forums.kali.org/showthread.php?20006-How-to-install-Nvidia-driver-on-Kali-1-0-6and-solve-ERROR-Unable-to-build-the-Unifin&p=30487#post30487 
    Also tried:
    PHP Code:

    http://santhecoder.blogspot.com/2013/08/install-nvidia-proprietary-driver-in.html 
    I have also tried the ".run" files from nvidia and the ".run" for CUDA.

    I installed the latest drivers using "apt-get install nvidia-drivers" (Nvidia meta file, installes everything) and I installed bumblebee using "apt-get install bumblebee" and "apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia."

    If I configure xorg.conf, I go to the terminal that happens when gdm3 isn't running and can't "service gdm3 start"

    Bumblebee gives this error when I try something like:
    Code:
    root@kali:~# optirun pyrit list_cores
    
    [   52.047678] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver
    
    [   52.047736] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.
    Can someone please help me get my optimus gpu working please?
