How well do laptops with Nvidia Optimus work?
I am new to Linux ("Ubuntu") and have been using Windows until now. I have decided to try Ubuntu out since version 11 however my laptop is a MSI with the GT540 Nvidia Optimus.
I have tried several methods to get the desktop use the Nvidia card but could never get it working. Finally, I decided to upgrade to 12.04. It works great but again I can't get the card to work 100%.
I have made headway though, using some how-to's, I can run glxspheres in with the optimus command but what do I do from here? The desktop does not work and I can't run glxgears. I have used the bumblebee way but don't know the version. Any help please?
