I have just installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64bit, and I'll first attempt to install bumblebee with ubuntu's ppa (pehaps try 2 intel driver ppas, such as x-org edgers and x-swat).
All launchpad / ubuntu.
On debian I had bumblebee working in the wheezy/sid (testing/unstable) version with http://suwako.nomanga.net/
repository. It works on stable(debian released) kernels, ev en sid, but not with liquorix kernel, also had several bugs regarding kernel modules/drivers (mounting ntfs, virtualbox errors, optirun crash on drawing a triangle in inkscape
Also gave it a shot in crunchbang (debian wheezy based) same issues.
Debian stable is verry out of date, old DE, old kernel and so on, thus kind of laggy on newer hardware. I'd highly recommend it for a server but not for gaming/webdesign/graphics/laptops. So installing the stable version, and manually installing bumblebee is kind of useless.
Back to the issue, if the launchpad ppas method fails, i'll be back with some other ways of installing bumblebee (and also a newer kernel, 3.6 or 3.7 hopefully stable).
