I have an Asus Laptop with hybrid graphic card. Several days ago I installed Nvidia driver and now for time to time I change my graphic card preference(by Nvidia-Prime) between Intel and Geforce. I want to see is there any other way to make this automatic to not spend so much time for selecting the graphic card?
I've tried Bumblebee, but I really have problem on working with it.
I've a laptop with an Nvidia optimus graphic card (GEForce GT 630m) with Ubuntu 12.04 installed. After a while of looking around, I found that the optimus controller for linus is bumblebee, so I installed it.
I would like to know whether is possible to perform GPU calculations using this driver, or Should I install the Nvidia driver?
I already installed ubuntu 14.04 I got Nvidia gt740m graphic card and I just installed nvidia-prime and driver nvidia-331. My issue is that ubuntu keeps freezing, while Im browsing some music pages or twitch ... it sometimes freeze so much so I have to Turn off the computer. I wasnt even on nvidia graphic but on integrated intel graphic card. Did I installed something wrong?
I'm using Sony Vaio VPCCW26FG (CW Series). It's graphic card is NVidia GeForce GT 330M. I use Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit as my operating system, dual boot with windows 7.
Recently I installed new driver from NVidia 256.53, but looks like this driver is not so stable on my notebook.
Sometimes the NVidia driver is successfully loaded, but sometimes its failed to load.
