Hi all, I'm using a clean install of Xubuntu 12.10 and I'm also using Play on Linux 4.2 and I'd like to know if it's possible to have some games run with primus and some games without. In other words to run play on linux with no optirun or primusrun prefix and then be able to add primusrun as a prefix for certain games. My laptop is a samsung NP700Z5C, optimus of course. Let me know if you need further info. Thanks in advance.

Every prefix that you have, is completely separated from the others. Anything thing you use or install in a prefix, will not bleed over into the other ones.

We tried to integrate optirun (primusrun is most probably very similar) and failed, it's not really compatible with the way we start Wine.
So you can start the whole playonlinux program with or without primusrun, but that's all for now.
