My notebook (ASUS A40J Series) comes with hybrid graphics: nVIDIA GF310M and Intel.

I can't use the nVIDIA card in my machine and am using Ubuntu 10.04.

How can I get this work?

Try disabling optimus from BIOS if bumblebee doesn´t work. I solved that way, and installed nvidia-current from x-swat updates repository, because regular repo driver crashed when it was installed.

Try looking at my setup for a Dell XPS17 L702x. It should work for you acer. Look here... enter link description here.

If it works please let me know.
