I am trying to figure out if my integrated intel graphics are being used rather than my discrete GeforceEFORCE 210M. When I check "Additional Drivers" under settings, it does not show any proprietary drivers to be installed indicating that the system doesn't even detect the NVIDIA driver. However,
sudo lshw -c video gives me the result:
*-display description: VGA compatible controller product: GT218 [GeForce G210M] vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a2 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=nouveau latency=0 resources: irq:16 memory:fd000000-fdffffff memory:e0000000-efffffff memory:fa000000-fbffffff ioport:dc00(size=128) memory:fe980000-fe9fffff *-display description: Display controller product: Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 07 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: msi pm bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 resources: irq:46 memory:fcc00000-fcffffff memory:d0000000-dfffffff ioport:cc00(size=8)
but it doesn't tell me which of the two is currently being used... so how can I figure this out?
- I am on Ubuntu 12.04
- I have not installed any video drivers manually yet.
- I have no xorg.conf (I don't know if this helps or is important, just stating it)
- The hybrid graphics works fine on my Windows 7 partition.
