I am running Ubuntu 15.10 and have a laptop with NVIDIA Optimus technology. As known by many, Optimus has yet to receive official support and has a lot of issues. Since I do not need the power of the graphics card for when I am on Ubuntu I would like to know if it is possible to completely disable the NVIDIA card altogether and only use the Intel on-board graphics. How would I go about doing this if possible?
I know of one solution which is using the NVIDIA PRIME and changing the profile to only use Intel, but the problem with this is that using the NVIDIA driver causes severe screen tearing which is annoying to deal with so this is not an option for me.
