[ubuntu] How to get Optimus working on ASUS U45JC in using Bumblebee in Ubuntu 11.10view story

For best results, do this from a clean install, and do not opt to install restricted add-ons, as this will install the proprietary drivers. (Hardware)

http://serverfault.com – NOTE: I'm really looking for an SSH-y solution here, more than bash-y one. I need to execute a series of commands over ssh, programatically.
