Thanks to the RuneScape player Tzbob for telling me that primusrun lets RuneScape use the Nvidia GPU on Nvidia Optimus Linux PCs with working OpenGL.
After he mentioned this to me I started working with the rsu_primusrun.pm module which will make the runescape script automatically use "primusrun" if it is available on the system (if you told the script to use primusrun).

A full release is planned on Monday the 17th December, if you want to try it out beforehand you can find the beta here:
https://github.com/HikariKnight/rsu-client/archive/v3.9.6-BETA-nvidia-optimus-support.zip

Tests done by Tzbob shows that the Nvidia Optimus card gives better performance in runescape on Linux than on Windows!
