According to @Lone_Wolf at a reasoned comment in mesa-git that you should replace mesa-libgl with libgl / libegl / libgles or opengl-driver, this should allow us to use it with others mesa packages from AUR.

Patch file 0001-bb_mutebblogger.patch is deprecated. The patch contents have already been included in the main Bumblebee codebase. Please remove this patch.

I am seeing a problem with patch 0001, failed at Hunk #1 when trying to patch.

package are conflict with nvidia-utils

jwhendy commented on 2017-03-12 20:42

During upgrade today (perhaps due to mesa-libgl -> mesa?):

:: bumblebee-git and nvidia-utils are in conflict (nvidia-libgl). Remove nvidia-utils? [y/N]

I can install community/bumblebee, though. Following the dep chain, this requires nvidia, which requires nvidia-utils, and nvidia-utils provdies nvidia-libgl... but this package provides nvidia-libgl, so I think that's where the problem is.

Due to recent commits, this line is no longer necessary:

# Make bash_completion work
mv -v "${pkgdir}/etc/bash_completion.d/bumblebee" "${pkgdir}/etc/bash_completion.d/optirun"

In fact, it won't build with it.

Indeed, I don't think this line is useful anymore, I removed it and it works fine.

> echo "remove nvidia modprobe -r --ignore-remove nvidia-drm nvidia-modeset nvidia-uvm nvidia" >> "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modprobe.d/bumblebee.conf"

Is this still necessary after #762 was merged? If not, please revert that commit...

You could add the following line in the PKGBUILD file:
echo "remove nvidia modprobe -r --ignore-remove nvidia-drm nvidia-modeset nvidia-uvm nvidia" >> "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modprobe.d/bumblebee.conf"

echo "blacklist nvidia" > "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modprobe.d/bumblebee.conf"

Thus this package will work properly with bbswitch (
