    change the configuration file /etc/eee1015pn/ds.conf with a text editor of your choice:

    Code:
    ## set the default GPU mode 
    ## Options: intel|nvidia|optimus
    defaultgpu=intel
    and reboot. You can find a detailed description of the other options here: http://mtron.co.nr/projects/eee1015pn

    Hello Mtron

    Are you able to watch youtube flash videos smoothly in 720p or 1080p?
    If so, how did you go about it?
    If not, what is the best we can expect and how to do it?

    Thanks for your help

    I just tested this:

    - boot to nvidia mode
    - install smplayer (mplayer frontend) and a recent mplayer build and configure it to use vdpau
    - use smplayers youtube browser (just press F11 in smplayer)
    - in the Youtube Browser settings I set it to use '720p mp4' streams
    - enter the url to the youtube video and hit search ( eg. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txRAL49PCYM )

    This works good for me.

    mplayer is installed and up to date
    installed smplayer
    changed the Output Driver to vdpau
    I can't find a youtube section and F11 does nothing

    do I have to install smtube?

    get it from smplayer's developer ppa https://launchpad.net/~rvm/+archive/smplayer

    Re: Asus Eee PC 1015PN - graphic cards: Optimus and ION

    Ah yes thanks
    I got it installed last night v0.8.6
    It would play fine at 720p but then the video would start to lag behind the audio until it was seconds out of sync

    I'm having trouble with video in general and all of a sudden.

    If you have any time please have a look at this thread

    I've since tried to start fresh but still with the same lagging/studdering video playback (my main concern is getting XBMC/vdpau to play nice)

    Do you plan on a hardware upgrade any time soon? the 1015pn has been good to me but only when I can squeeze max performance out of it.

    nice
    Is that your main pc now and is it running linux?
    Also, does that mean you are not supporting 1015pn anymore?

    Nope, it's a work laptop. At home i still prefer my workstation.

    I will defiantly release a last version with ubuntu 14.04 support, but this will be the last ubuntu release i support for the eee 1015pn. This hardware will reach end of life pretty soon and i doubt there are still may eee users out there in the wild.

    Hello!

    Unfortunately nvidias dualgpu implementation shipped with trusty & nvidia 331 does not support our eee's so i updated the scripts for ubuntu trusty. Hopefully this will be the last release because i expect that the nvidia devs add more platforms to their implementation soon.

    To install eee1015pn-acpitools Version 0.11.0 add the ppa to your system and install the eee1015pn-acpitools Package or run a system upgrade if you have already done so. To trigger such an upgrade now use
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Changelog:

    * added Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 support (Use the PPA to install!)
    * optimus: fixed detection of nvidia gpu power state
    * use unity-control-center for display management with intel on trusty

    Documentation /How to use:
    http://mtron.co.nr/projects/eee1015pn

    Distribution Upgrades:
    If you plan to upgrade to trusty make sure that you have min. 0.11.0 installed. After the upgrade completed run
    Code:
    sudo display-settings regenerate-glx
    and reboot.

    Release Notes:
    This release introduces Support for ubuntu trusty thar 14.04 LTS and works with the following nvidia drivers available via ubuntus Repositories: nvidia-current, nvidia-304, nvidia-310, nvidia-319, nvidia-331

    Have fun!
