I use an HP Zbook 14 G2 as my daily driver. It has an intel i5-5200U processor with hybrid graphics (Integrated Intel HD 5500 Broadwell GT2 and discrete radeon R7 m260 Opal Pro).
I used Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 with Gnome 3.24, and it had support for hybrid graphics, such that on the application menu I could pop out the menu and select "Launch using dedicated graphics card". In this way, I could easily launch applications such as gimp or vmware player using my discrete GPU.
However, I noticed that, when I did a fresh install for Ubuntu 17.10 (now using Gnome 3.26), I can no longer see that option when I right-click an application in the applications menu.
I am using vanilla gnome, not the modified version of Canonical***
Right here it is a post by OMG Ubuntu, through which I first knew about this option on Gnome 3.24 back then: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/03/top-features-in-gnome-3-24
My question is: Is Gnome 3.26 still supporting this option, or is it just that Ubuntu folks disabled it for any reason? How can I get that option back or is there any alternative way to use my discrete GPU for my needed applications?
