Re: Acer Timeline 4810TG on Jaunty - ATI Driver
Hi vgdev, it's been a long time, but if you are still interested:
- Radeon HD graphics-driver doesn't work properly: if nobody has news it will never really work properly. You should stick with the open drivers, which works quite well.
- adjusting brightness? You should open terminal and write:
# just put this:
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
and it will work after a restart.
Switching between the two gpu is not possible, but look for "switcharoo" on google and you'll find something. Usually you can turn off the ATI card to achieve better battery life.
Too much power consumtion? Look at the switcharoo, 'cause the ATI card is one of the problems, notably the biggest one.
