I've found the way to disable my hybrid card GT 540M on Asus K53SV at: https://launchpad.net/~hybrid-graphics-linux

That's great, but I need those commands to be executed automatically at startup. So I followed the instructions here.

Actually, I copy the bash file instead of creating link in /etc/init.d/

However, it doesn't work at all. My script is:

echo "start my own acpi_call"
cd acpi_call
insmod acpi_call.ko
echo "finished.Thank you"

I tried both using "sudo insmod" and "insmod" only but still no effect. What's wrong with it?

  • Did you read this ? It's a previous post here in AU to run init.d scripts on startup. It says look at man insserv – Nitin Venkatesh Jun 21 '11 at 2:12
  • yes. I did. but I didn't know where to put that command "insserv" – Duc Tran Jun 21 '11 at 5:31

another option is to install bumblebee and copy the install-files/bumblebee-disablecard-on-powerup into /usr/local/bin with your OFF method.
