This is a repost of a questions i posted in another question thread that contained other questions. previous quetionI just pulled this out of that question.
System: Asus N43J Intel i5 2.53GHz Nvidia GeForce GT425m VRAM1GB Dual Boot Win7 & Ubuntu 12.04
I can't get the HDMI to work. I've read all kinds of posts, websites, suggestions for about 2 weeks now, ever since 12.04 came out. I can't find anything that works.
I'm using Bumblebee, following the wiki and several other websites, including this: askubuntu how well.... Bumblebee appears to be working when i use the optirun glxspheres or . However, the hdmi isn't working. When i plug it into the TV, nothing happens (like the desktop showing up on the TV). But, when i run, say "optirun totem", the screen goes black, like it is trying, but nothing is being transmitted. When i take out the cable, the little screensaver on the TV comes back.
I saw this video: Bumblebee NVidia Optimus hdmi support on KDE. He's using the (apparently) exact laptop I'm using. All seems to be working.
Any help here?
I can't get HDMI to work. Bumblebee seems to be doing fine, as i can optirun program just fine, and when i optirun VLC/totem, the above happens.
