i am not sure if it's a good place to post this, so feel free to move / copy this thread somewhere else if needed
i noticed that there are questions here about nvidia. i am pasting this for anybody who has a problem with running maia on linux aka.: black screen (it applies to other programs and games as well)
to get "RunMaia" starting correctly I use "primusrun" before it to use nvidia card instead of the integrated card ("primusrun" replaced "optirun" in bumblebee)
i wrote a short tutorial for linux mint community a while ago, that i am pasting here as well. hope it helps somebody!
note: this tutorial was originally written for for hybrid graphics, but it's possible it may help others... not sure.

install bumblebee-nvidia (the Manager will add a few dependecies - accept these as well)
From Driver Manager (accessible through Control Centre)
install recommended Nvidia 331 driver
To run software use i.e.:
