  2. [ubuntu] Re: [Unity] menu-bar and launcher defaults

  10. [SOLVED] Screen resolution not remembered on login

    For a long time I had a problem being stuck in Unity 2D. I found out that it was because of the Optimus driver, so I disabled it through the BIOS menu. However that made my GPU continually overheat....

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Gonna buy a new laptop, how will ubuntu fare on it

    I just thought I would add that I agree with the other people who have said that it is best to just disable Optimus, if possible. If that is still an option in the Asus BIOS, I highly recommend...
