i will try it once i got home, but just so you know, i am a real newbie in uBuntu/Linux, so it might take a while for me to research very deep before i start installing as i dont plan to screw anything haha
yes i do,
there are so many different version of how to install the Bumble bee, i am not sure which one is the best one? and the most proper way ?
like there are this one
then a couple of more on the net
which one you would recommend me to follow?
--- update ---
i tried the "git clone email@example.com:mkottman/acpi_call.git"
but i got this message:

not this one:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable
but this one:
- sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mj-casalogic/bumblebee
- sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bumblebee
anyway yeah. the "works!" appear
and im so happy!
just 1 question though
i use the Additional Driver from the Bumblebee, is that fine? i actually activate it ( the nVidia Experimental 3D support )
because it's from Bumblebee that is why i used it as you guys say not to install the nVidia one
however, when i restart the laptop, then i want to turn it off/on
it just say "bash: /proc/acpi/call: No such file or directory"
do i have to run the call again to turn it on? so basically whenever i turn off my laptop
i have to restart all these?
sudo insmod acpi_call.ko
chmod +x ./test_off.sh

"works!" means that acpi_call has found a way to shutdown your nvidia, not that bumblebee works. About losing the settings,I have the same problem here and from what I have read it looks like it's a file permission issue but I haven't figured it out...
so you're saying that the Bumblebee is still not working?
how so? because isn't Bumblebee the one making the switch? i dont get it.
Guys, a quick question for you all
are you guys experiencing any desktop crashes using 11.04 with your u36sd?
because i am starting to believe that the laptop is incompatible because i know 11.04 crashes a lot
but i revert back to 10.10, but i still get the same crash
i refuse to believe that it's hardware problem as using Win7 is fine
the random crash that will make your mouse cant even move, that kind of crash
i seen a lot of people with different crash with 11.04, but yea
are your 11.04's working fine on your laptop? because if it is, i might reconsider to return this latop and exchange with the new one
