comment Ubuntu 13.04 Multi Monitor Dell precision m4600 nvidia optimus
It depends on the laptop. I don't have a dock, so I can't check your specific issue on my m4600 (Quadro 1000M). Disabling optimus doesn't affect video connections (vga, hdmi or dp) in my case

comment ethernet disconnected, shows up in ifconfig

comment Is there a tool to manage dash lenses?
It'd be great if the tool could also sort them. Even better if it could allow you to modify the Ctrl+tab shortcut (for switching lenses) and add shortcut to open a particular lens.

at that moment, it was when I was clicking on the link. I tried converting the file I linked in my question and it didn't work (document looks different from original).

It opens too on my end, but it's missing the figures and the formatting is completely different than what I see in skydrive
