NVIDIA card IS getting recognised and works on my Windows 7 partition. I just now have installed Kubuntu 16.04 LTS. Everything seems to work fine graphically. However by looking as
lspci I have checked and seen that NVIDIA is not being used (should show up for VGA right?).
I have NVIDIA Quadro M1000M with 2GB DDR5 and Intel Corporation Skylake Integrated Graphics cards.
If I do:
lspci -vnnn | perl -lne 'print if /^\d+\:.+(\[\S+\:\S+\])/' | grep VGA
VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Skylake Integrated Graphics [8086:191b] (rev 06) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
If I do:
lspci | grep NVIDIA
3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM107GLM [Quadro M1000M] (rev ff)
THIS PART SOLVED NOW (see comments):
I tried to activate this using bumblebee as in the instructions here : Link. Here it fails when I do the step
sudo service lightdm restart and gives the error:
Failed to restart lightdm.service: Unit lightdm.service not found.
