I have bought a laptop of asus f550c with i7-3537u and nvidia geforce gt720m. I have installed bumblebee https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee to enable optimus technology. I have two question: I cannot find the nvidia setting menu on system tools->administrator->nvidia-setting to configure the video board.
I have been wanting to install Linux on my laptop(my only PC for that matter). After playing around with a few live CD's and doing some research I have run into a dilema with my graphics card. I have the Nvidia GeForce 540m with optimus technology.
I had a asus u30jc laptop with dual video NVIDIA OPTIMUS features (Built-in Intel and Nvidia geforce 310M), I just wondering if someone already figure out how the official nvidia driver works, or any tweaks inorder to use the nvidia card, Ive been using this laptop for more than a year now, and i cant figure out or find a tutorials that work (when i try installed any nvidia driver it rende
I'm running 12.04 Precise 64bit and have the dreaded dual video situation that for whatever reason Dell used in the XPS 15z. (I know, in Windoze it supposedly exists for better power management.)
Has anyone been successful at getting Optimus to work short of using Bumblebee?
I plan to buy a customized laptop in a week. My main OS on the system would the latest version of ubuntu. Almost all the laptops I am interested in, seem to come with Nvidia optimus and I am well aware that optimus and ubuntu don't play nice with each other.
