Hello to everybody
I have an Asus with a NVIDIA GeForce 610M graphic card, working simultaneously with an Intel GPU (what they call "Optimus" or something similar). This system works properly under windows, but not under Linux. I've read a lot about this subject and I haven't found a solution yet. I'm trying to use the NVIDIA card on Linux Mint 14.
What I've done:
After installing and updating Linux Mint 14, Intel GPU is working and NVIDIA card is not detected, not even the proprietary drivers. Some programs I need don't work properly under Intel GPU and I need the NVIDIA card. I downloaded NVIDIA driver and installed it: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-disp ... river.html
After installing it, the resolution was set to the minimum and I couldn't change it. I ran the nvidia-xconfig to modify the xorg.conf and after that I restarted the X server, but the "Nvidia X server settings" still says that I'm not using the Nvidia graphic card, so I cannot change resolution and any other setting.
I've read about Bumblebee, but everything I read is previous to the release of the Nvidia driver I tried to install. I thought that this driver solved the problem of having two graphic cards, but probably I'm wrong.
Does anyone know how to fix the problem with this graphic card?
Thank you very much in advance.
