optirun glxgears gives following:

X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  152 (GLX)

journalctl output at the start moment:

The same thing is going on with any other package, though it shows it runs from dGPU, but I don’t know if it’s true.

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:

Hi, are these errors new ? Or were they it already there when you installed the driver ? Have you changed anything that might be related to these errors ?

Actually they are old. It’s weird because optirun seems to run normally, but it still throws error’s in journalctl.

Everything I’ve changed is I created custom config for tearing fix.


Jesus I think there are no words which can describe HOW I HATE NVIDIA

So it appears to be a bug in libglvnd.

Workaround is exporting specific env value: export __GLVND_DISALLOW_PATCHING=1

Now optirun glxgears work and it’s running on NVIDIA card.

Be not lazy and check your PC/Laptop for the same issue because the issue affects libglvnd library and it won’t crash bumblebee or nvidia module, and if apps have no graphics they will run with your intel card and you won’t be able to even notice the issue (except low frame-rate).
