comment Open cl in intel
Thanks again. While some developers will want to be able to switch libraries easily, they'll be able to figure that out much better than the larger number of people that just want to be able to use applications that require OpenCL. So I'd vote for packaging that makes that easy, and look for a day when lots more apps are enabled to use GPUs.

comment Open cl in intel
Aha - now I see that the README.txt for beignet explains that it is an alternative to Intel's OpenCL SDK, which does indeed support the HD 4000. Thank you!! Note that folks do have to actually run make also.... Is the need to run ldconfig evidence of a problem with the package?

Thanks, but according to Intel they don't support OpenCL on the HD 4000 for Linux: OpenCL SDK 1.2 for Linux, without Xeon?. What kind of performance are you getting?

comment How to add a “Show desktop” icon to the launcher?
It looks like myunity was never an officially supported package, and is not available for trusty. The answer by @fossfreedom works out-of-the-box.

comment How do I revert Alt-tab behavior to switch between windows on the current workspace?
The "Warning" post suggests that the goal as of 12/04 was to reduce the need for CCSM by merging in support for the things folks really want. Given the massive popularity of this (and my continuing state of massive frustration with how the default switcher in trusty works), is any progress being made on at least making a less-scary and better-supported tweak available for switching to the static application switcher?

comment What exactly is TLP doing that default system config wouldn't?
Thanks. But we're still interested in why it isn't already part of Ubuntu. Have you asked / gotten feedback from the Ubuntu developers?

Why is the "source code" option a dash, not a check? I can't get mine to be a check....

Zbunjeni you're a scholar and a gentleman - too bad the person you were giving tech support to for free didn't give you credit! I want to buy one of these at best buy, and I guess it still isn't clear how much of a hassle it would be to keep this version of the Intel Wireless 7260 device working smoothly on ubuntu 14.04

comment Ubuntu sometimes starts swapping like crazy for no reason
I'm seeing this right now on precise. The consistent standout on iotop is compiz. Other standout is Chrome GPU process. Killing GPU process doesn't help. Background: I run lots of browser tabs (so frustrating how every web page demands app-level memory and cpu resources now!). But only rarely does compiz seem to thrash like this. Frustrating.
