View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ironhide on Asus N53Sv - problem

Hi all, first post... I've been using Ubuntu for a few weeks now, had a play with it back at 7.04 but only just started using it again. I'm enjoying it, have it behaving quite how I like it, but I'm having some problems with ironhide.

I have a new N53Sv which I did a WUBI install of 11.10 on for a week or so, all good. Ironhide installed ok although I had trouble with the indicator. I decided I liked Ubuntu and would stick with it so I recently formatted and am now dual booting 11.10 and Win7. I installed ironhide again, but I had the same problems with the indicator crashing.

I found this bug and fix (https://github.com/MrMEEE/ironhide/issues/77) so I followed the steps here. I was still having problems and thought I'd stuffed up, so I decided to try to remove ironhide and reinstall. I did this through ppa-purge but it didn't seem to work properly. I found this guide to installing Ironhide (http://www.ivegotavirus.com/blog/2011/09/01/how-to-set-up-intel-optimus-graphics-on-ubuntu-save-battery-life/) so I followed the steps for removing the nVidia libraries and bumblebee figuring that it would work for ironhide and it seemed to - on the autoremove step ironhide was removed.

Now I am running into some problems. When I run
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings acpi-call-dkms I got the message "No candidate for acpi-call-dkms." Installing the two nvidia packages by themselves worked, and I found these instructions (http://linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspot.com/2010/07/using-acpicall-module-to-switch-onoff.html) on installing acpi-call a diffferent way, so I did that. On the last step I get
:~/acpi_call$ sudo ./test_off.sh
Trying \_SB.PCI0.P0P1.VGA._OFF: failed
Trying \_SB.PCI0.P0P2.VGA._OFF: failed
Trying \_SB_.PCI0.OVGA.ATPX: failed
Trying \_SB_.PCI0.OVGA.XTPX: failed
Trying \_SB.PCI0.P0P3.PEGP._OFF: failed
Trying \_SB.PCI0.P0P2.PEGP._OFF: failed
Trying \_SB.PCI0.P0P1.PEGP._OFF: failed
Trying \_SB.PCI0.MXR0.MXM0._OFF: failed
Trying \_SB.PCI0.PEG1.GFX0._OFF: failed
Trying \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.GFX0.DOFF: works!

So the last one seems to have worked. Unplugging my AC adapter now tells me I've got an extra 45 minutes or so but the figure is still low (2:45 from full charge).

So now I try to install ironhide
sudo apt-get install ironhide and I get
E: Unable to locate package ironhide I have run and rerun
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mj-casalogic/ironhide and
sudo apt-get update then retried but with no success. The PPA has files in /var/apt/lists and the file ppa.launchpad.net_mj-casalogic_ironhide_ubuntu_dists_oneiric_main_binar y-amd64_Packages contains an ironhide entry.

So I'm pretty much stuck for ideas, can anyone help me?

EDIT: I should mention that now if I try to run
sudo apt-get install acpi_call_dkms I get the same error as ironhide, and I don't get the candidate error anymore. *I know I already install acpi_call through a different method but I thought that information might be relevant...

Thanks in advance


EDIT: I have run
apt-get clean I have used purge-ppa to remove the ironhide repository and then re-added and tried to install, I have run
apt-get upgradeand
apt-get update-distand none of it works... :(

Hi again, I have since installed pyJupiter.. I'm not sure if it's relevant but after a reboot it doesn't seem to do anything.. changing modes makes no difference to the battery life estimate. In fact, after installing Jupiter the battery life from a full charge has dropped from 2:45 to 1:50..

You did not install Jupiter, please don't confuse the two. pyJupiter is likely to be pulled upstream, but for now they are two completely different products.

@fuduntu - thankyou for pointing out my 2-letter typo. While I've got you here, do you have any suggestions about my actual problem?

Hi Dan. I have the same laptop as you and have IRONHIDE working. What I recommend is starting the install again and follow this tutorial http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11318882

Take note of reply 3 by Croo before attempting it as he corrects an error made by the original poster.

Also, for part 6 of the tutorial, as explained in part 5, you will need to change part of the command to include your laptop type. so where you see ".lenovo.ThinkPadT420" you need to replace it with ".asus.N53Sv"

I hope this helps.

NP, It's unfortunate that this applet is out there because it's being pulled upstream (the author is a new team member). On topic though, check and make sure that the the 'jupiter' group is at the very bottom of /etc/sudoers.

I don't think they have shifted to /etc/sudoers.d yet but I could be wrong.

So I removed the files referring to mj-casalogic from /etc/apt/sources.list.d and re-added the repo, and it worked. ironhide installed and running glxgears gave me 60fps, optirun glxgears gave me messages about enabling/disabling the card and 1200fps.

BUT now after a reboot, optirun glxgears gives me no messages about the nvidia card and 60fps. The only terminal output is the 'synchronized to refresh rate' message. optirun just won't work.

Launching the ironhide indicator applet shows the card as OFF, running glxgears from this menu doesn't switch the card on. Trying to run 'configure apps' or the Application Settings menu item both do nothing, which is the issue I was trying to fix in the first place...

Battery life has not changed, watching the battery rate it is hovering around 30,000mw steady which is no change from before.

This is starting to get really frustrating, what am I doing wrong?



EDIT: After another reboot, optirun command is now working again... *sigh* some consistency would be nice.

I'm sorry I can't be of much more help. I never use the graphics card with Ubuntu so I never really test it to be on or off. I just know it was being turned off as before it I got battery life of like an hour, where as after it I was getting up to 3:30 fully charged and idling.

How much battery life do you get fully charged?
