Graphics ChipPartialHave not made it work on (K)ubuntu 14.04 with NVIDIA-proposed version 346.47. Instead using 331.113 with some issues - have not made CUDA work. Some issues with xrandr (also 14.04). Upgrading the kernel helped a lot with the xrandr issues.

Notes

You may have better luck with newer versions of the OS.

Summary

On (K)ubuntu 14.04 works out of the box but:
* Some issues utilising the NVIDIA accelerator.
* Some issues with xrandr and the Intel driver, seemingly mostly alleviated by installing Ubuntu mainline kernel.
* Some issues with the touchpad, seemingly mostly alleviated by installing a patched kernel module available from the bug report page.
