Installed bumblebee and primus following the fedora documentation here:

My intention is to run Steam games using discrete Graphics.

Testing optirun on glxspheres64, I have way better performance than using primusrun. However, Steam won't launch any games using optirun.

I think this is because I dont have installed optirun for 32bit. Documentation doesn't say how to do it. Also copr package repository only has x86_64. Any ideas?

Fixed. Added the repository mentioned here (manually)

add 32-bit repo: sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo

32-bit primus libs sudo dnf install primus-libs.i686

In any case, using primusrun for games is better (steam overlay works better, etc) and more stable

On steam game launcher properties do: primusrun %command%

Hi there! Can you please describe what you did to solve the issue? I'm facing the same issue, for steam to work properly, i need to install 32bit stuff. Thanks!!
