[Bug 1268771] Re: NVIDIA Prime fails with Linux 3.13


I've got a Nvidia Geforce gtx 860M discrete gpu. I've installed the drivers by running in the terminal:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-343 nvidia-settings nvidia-prime    
But when I select NVIDIA card in the nvidia-settings I cannot get the login screen anymore when I reboot, and I have to change my gpu to the integrated one, by running in tty1:
    sudo prime-nvidia intel    

I have tried all kinds of solutions, like getting an older and a newer
kernel, but I've still got the problem with those kernels. My current
version of the kernel is: `3.13.0-37`. Has anyone fixed the problem?
