Integrated graphics acceleration not working after uninstalling Bumblebee

Hi :)

I was successfully using Fedora 22 on an Optimus laptop with Bumblebee/proprietary drivers set up as described in the wiki :

Everything was working fine until I did a regular system upgrade, which broke Bumblebee. I know Optimus support on linux is experimental so I can live without my nvidia GPU, and I can turn it off in the BIOS. So I uninstalled Bumblebee packages and turned my GPU off but I think I lost my integrated intel graphics chipset. Everything seems to be done on the CPU and it's very slow (web-browsing, even launching emacs is slower) !

I tried to remove/re-install xorg-x11-server-Xorg and xorg-x11-drv-intel and the kernel but it did not work.

Any idea ? Thanks.

Try seeing if you have a left over /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Make a backup of the file, delete it, then reboot. Also check the output of glxinfo | grep direct and glxinfo | grep -i opengl. This will let us see if you have direct rendering or not.

Thanks but the issue was resolved by the next update I did... I think I will live without Bumblebee for now it's too unstable.

Try setting up bumblebee this way.
This works well on my laptop and I see a lot of people are getting stuck with setting up bumblebee. So, I wrote this blog to help others. :)

Edit 1: Here's a sequel to the original post: Sequel

would be nice to add to your blog some simple command which user can test that it works (sure he did that for some purpose but u know ...)
