Another trouble with HybridGraphics. I didn't find an issue for the moment. I read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HybridGraphics but no way. I would like to be as precise as possible to describe the trouble and my searches

Tanks for your help because I'm lost for 10 days.

Computer : Dell Inspiron 5559, Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz

OS : LinuxMint 17.2 based on Ubuntu 14.04

Kernel : 4.2.3

What is the meaning of NON RECLAME ?

Why FAILED appears ?

lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 1916 (rev 07)

Only Intel appears but not Amd

grep -i switcheroo /boot/config-*

Switcheroo is enabled but /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch is missing

Xorg.conf file is missing in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/

At boot, i've seen radeon 0000:01:00.0: VCE init error (-22)

xserver-xorg-video-ati v 1:7.3.0 (open driver) is running instead of fglrx-updates v 2:15.200 or fglrx v 2:15.200 (the computer freezes if i use these 2 last drivers)

Thanks for your Help. I hope that LinuxMint 17.3 will fix this trouble.

  • There is a bug in kernel 4.2 preventing the init of the radeon driver. Good starting point would be bisect the kernel to find out last good kernel version which works with the graphic switch. – kukulo Dec 8 '15 at 17:17

had the same problem with a similar radeon graphic card.

i installed the mainline kernel version 4.6 from here:


Here is a guide for the installation:


After booting the new kernel, i tested the card with the following command, and the changing to the radeon graphic card was working:

$ DRI_PRIME=1 glxgears -info

(have posted this hint there too: 16.04 - Radeon R7 M260 errors)
