When I run optirun, I get "[ERROR]The Bumblebee daemon has not been started yet or the socket path /var/run/bumblebee.socket was incorrect." [ERROR]Could not connect to bumblebee daemon - is it running?

I am a linux noob, so please be patient. Really need the help.

Have you started bumblebeed daemon?

`sudo sudo systemctl start bumblebeed` and `sudo systemctl enable bumblebeed` for enabling it at every reboot

Yes I did. I just tried and I still get the same error. Is there a log file of what happened to the service?

I believe I must update my system with dnf. Happens because I freshly installed FC24 KDE. Will post again when update is finished. Thanx for the help
