comment ubuntu 15.10 update broke USB ports
If you can get to the grub menu (which may require holding the left Shift key while booting) and go to "Advanced options", you'll see a list of the installed kernels. Or you can run dpkg-log-summary to see which packages were installed/uninstalled/upgraded recently.

I've just tested and the Left Alt key also works for that purpose, so yes: just Alt.

Either Alt key works.

Most keyboards I've seen mark the right Alt key as AltGr. Apparently some just have two Alt keys.

Followed your steps and got both modes to work: low-consumption with the intel drivers worked right away, while high-performance with the modesetting + NVIDIA drivers required a configuring a display-setup-script in lightdm running xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0 && xrandr --auto. Unfortunately the flickering is still there in both modes.

Sorry, ignore the question. Had not read through to your reference to the graphics-drivers ppa. I'll try your recipe during this weekend. Thanks a lot.

Is this the driver you're referring to? (I can't find any reference to "short-lived branch"): nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/90393/en-us

I don't have any "unknown display" in the Display Settings :--( Thanks anyway for the hint.

After a lot of tinkering, I managed to get NVIDIA GPU to work together with the Intel card (via xrandr --setprovideroutputsource). It works awsomely (GLXgears at 12500 FPS at default size, or 2900 FPS full screen).... But the flickering is still there :-(

Didn't help. Clarification, in case it matters: the flickering lines appear even before logging in (I believe compiz has not kicked in yet at that point, right?).
