Can't run steam with primusrun steam

Hi all. I have a laptop with bumblebee; it is running and i am using it setting the launch options in steam games

 primusrun %command%. 
[root@du du]# pacman -Qs nvidia-*

But i can't run civilization 6 with both launch options primusrun and LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libfreetype.so so i am trying to running steam with

primusrun steam-runtime

but a little steam window with the text glxchooseVisual Error appears and in the shell:

EDIT:
I can run steam with dedicated nvidia graphic car with

optirun -b primus steam-runtime

i checked that by

[root@du GameGuide]# cat /proc/acpi/bbswitch 
0000:01:00.0 ON

but civilization 6 wants to run only with intel graphic card (the options menu let choose which graphic card choose and only intel is present. Also,game performance are not corresponding to a 860M graphic card

Re: Can't run steam with primusrun steam

Have you tried switching the order between the two launch options?

Re: Can't run steam with primusrun steam

Hi,
I just bought the game and I have the same issue :

I can run the game with the "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libfreetype.so" trick. The game works fine but seems to be using the integrated INTEL graphics. In the options, I can't select anything else than the integrated graphics (the only option).
I launch steam with "primusrun steam" and the other games use my nvidia card correctly.

Re: Can't run steam with primusrun steam

try:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libfreetype.so exec primusrun %command%

IDK if it will work at all, but its worth a try and I typically find options like that have to go first followed by 'exec primusrun'

The game launches but it's still not possible to choose anything else than integrated graphics when changing video settings in game :'( .

Re: Can't run steam with primusrun steam

Yes this is technically normal. Your game only "sees" the intel card, because that's where the display is. If the primusrun command actually works the rendering should be done by the nvidia card.

Re: Can't run steam with primusrun steam

Yay you are actually right !
Running 'nvidia-smi' while playing the game actually show a process running on the gpu : './GameGuide/Civ6' !
