In ubuntu11.10 , I still need to use open source drive of ATI when using Switcheroo ? The 'addon driver' in system menu is about open drive or propriety driver ? Thanks

Switcheroo works for open-source drivers only (radeon, i915, nouveau). The Additional drivers program tries to install proprietary drivers which do not work with switcheroo.

In ubuntu 11.10, how to install open source drive of ati Radeon HD 3650? thanks – waterloo2005 Jan 27 '12 at 17:44
Uninstall the fglrx driver (and possibly reboot). The radeon driver should be installed by default. – Lekensteyn Jan 27 '12 at 18:23
