Primus is a shared library that provides OpenGL and GLX APIs and implements low-overhead local-only client-side OpenGL offloading via GLX forking, similar to VirtualGL. It intercepts GLX calls and redirects GL rendering to a secondary X display, presumably driven by a faster GPU. On swapping buffers, rendered contents are read back using a PBO and copied onto the drawable it was supposed to be rendered on in the first place.

$ primusrun glxspheres primus: fatal: failed to load any of the libraries: /usr/$LIB/nvidia/ /usr/$LIB/nvidia/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

replacing the simple quotes by double quotes fixed it (in the commented out parts, singne quotes needs to be replaced too).
