comment Open cl in intel
Thanks. Offhand, update-alternatives seems helpful, and note it seems jockey isn't used any more as of 14.04. But I also wonder how this question fits into the whole ICD concept. I just ran across this, but I still don't know how (or if) these things fit together. More Criticism Comes Towards Intel's Beignet OpenCL - Phoronix

comment What has Jockey been replaced with in 14.04?
Thanks for keeping 14.04 in there Oli. I assume that it is common for tags to mark the first of a string of releases that a question is relevant for.

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?

comment Do I really need the “Source Code” in my repository list?
Why is the "source code" option a dash, not a check? I can't get mine to be a check....
