My laptop is MSi GE620 DX and it has Nvidia Optimus technology. Intel and Nvidia gfx cards. However Ubuntu doesn´t even regonize my Intel HD 3000 at all!
I even tried Fedora 17 on my system and it did regonize Intel HD 3000 straight away. But not in Ubuntu. Can´t set the correct resolution, or run Gnome 3 for example. The card just isn´t regonized.
I tried install mesa-utils, but no, did not help.
I can´t use software that needs 3d in ubuntu, but in fedora, everything works.
