Question related to linux mint 17 on a DELL XPS

I'm going to install linux mint 17, but i have a dell xps 14 and it has an NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M and the Intel HD Graphics 4000. I was using ubuntu with the bumblebee development but now i want to change to linux mint. So i would like to know if it is necessary to install again the bumblebee development or i can install something else with the specific driver for those.

Thanks a lot.

Mint is based on Ubuntu so should not be that different from Ubuntu. Test out...

Mint is based on Ubuntu so should not be that different from Ubuntu. Test out Mint with a Live CD and if the video is OK go ahead and install. Once that's done you could install the bumblebee software or in Mint open "Driver Manager" and see what it suggests. It should offer the correct Nvidia proprietary driver.
