Description: After upgrading to nvidia-361.16-1 / nvidia-utils-361.16-1 / lib32-nvidia-utils-361.16-1 using primus to run glxgears or glxgears64 produces the following error:

primus: fatal: failed to load any of the libraries: /usr/lib/nvidia/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have checked the system and is present. Downgrading to 358.16-3 fixes the error.

Steps to reproduce:

Upgrade to nvidia-361.16-1 in testing, reboot and run primusrun glxgears. Running optirun glxgears works however.
This task depends upon

nvidia-libgl-361.16-1 included in that mix?

Edit, nevermind, I see we're talking bumblebee.

It's actually quite simple to fix, it's just a library path issue:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nvidia

Then it works fine.

I guess the packager simply needs to edit the default "primusrun" bash script, and uncomment and change the following line:

# PRIMUS_libGL=${PRIMUS_libGL}:/usr/lib/nvidia-current:/usr/lib32/nvidia-current

Seems to work.

I spoke too soon, it works for 64bit apps, but not 32bits one.

EDIT: You've put lib-32 instead of lib32 in the path.

Oh dear, fixed.

Thank you and sorry for the slow response, I've been afk. Tested 64 and 32 bit, all seems to work well now. Has anyone else noted that after you run optirun or primus that bbswitch fails to turn off their nvidia card and issuing # echo OFF > /proc/acpi/bbswitch doesn't work anymore?
