My laptop : HP pavilion G4-1212TX Proc : sandybridge Intel core i5 VGA :

  • Intel Integrated Graphic proc
  • AMD Radeon HD6470M ( discrete )

Dual OS Win 7 and Ubuntu 11.10.

No problem with Win 7, I can switch VGA ( Radeon or Intel ) via catalyst but no luck with Ubuntu 11.10.

  • I have to set "nomodeset" in grub to avoid black screen.
  • I can't switching VGA between intel/AMD or just use AMD for all application in ubuntu.
  • Brightness cannot adjustable.
  • I have try to install fgrlx and radeon propietary driver, but didn't worked.
