Hi, I am using a hybrid-graphics laptop:

$lspci|/usr/bin/grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 540M] (rev ff)

And I have also installed bumblebee (with the NVIDIA proprietary drivers)

$ rpm -qa|/usr/bin/grep bumblebee

optirun is working fine. Also, for games installed in the machine, i can run optirun <game-name>.

But I have no idea how to enable nvidia while playing a game from web (eg facebook games).

Kindly help.

I've never used optirun but I think you'll have to start whatever web browser you're using with optirun too, like you do with the games.
