Problems and Solutions

  • Problem (at 2011.10.29): screen brightness cannot be changed
  • Solution: add 'acpi_backlight=vendor' in /etc/default/grub after 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash' and run 'sudo update-grub' afterwards.
  • This problem appears to be solved in kernel versions since 3.8.8. Correct this if its wrong.

Very recently bought a 5750G with i7-2670QM with switchable integrated Intel HD 3000 and Optimus driven Nvidia GT 630M discrete graphics card.
Installed Ubuntu 12.04 and works out of the box. Installed Bumblebee 3.02 additionally and now works with the GT 630M as well.
