    anyway, yeah, i am just more curious about my question for the Nvidia part

    so do i have to remove the Nvidia driver on the Additional driver before i do any of those steps?
    Yes, you need to remove the Nvidia restricted driver before installing bumblebee or Ironhide. Let me know how bumblebee works because I might be switching to it from ironhide.

    twefoju@Wils:~/acpi_call$ sudo insmod acpi_call.ko

    twefoju@Wils:~/acpi_call$ chmod +x ./test_off.sh

    twefoju@Wils:~/acpi_call$
    although i use the latest Bumblebee

    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

    from

    http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/06/b...ing-to-ubuntu/

    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?

    cd acpi_call
    make
    sudo insmod acpi_call.ko

    chmod +x ./test_off.sh

    ./test_off.sh

    Hello TweJofu,
    "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...

    Re: ASUS u36sd support thread

    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.

    Re: ASUS u36sd support thread

    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
