How well do laptops with Nvidia Optimus work?
I have NVIDIA GeForce 310M (Hybrid) Graphics in my Samsung QX 410s02 laptop. I installed Ubuntu 11.10. Before installing mesa-utils,in the section "System Info", the graphics driver was listed as unkown, but now it displays Intel® Ironlake Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 and the experience in Standard.
And I am not being able to use all the compiz or unity effects. The nvidia graphics card is based on optimus technology. I installed the proprietary softwares and configured the nvidia settings using
sudo nvidia-xconfig and when i restarted the computer, it got stuck somewhere an like anarc(h)........so i again installed Ubuntu 11.10. I searched for the problems, and they said that nvidia optimus is not supported.
Now, i want to know, is there any process to enable all the compiz and unity effects in my computer. Which graphics card should i use(nvidia or intel) and what is the process or commands do i need to follow?? please help me.....
