    Not to be rude or anything, but I think this thread is called "ASUS u36sd support thread" for a reason... It is because just this thread is about just ASUS u36sd.

    Try starting one for just your model, or search to see if anyone else already done it.

    I will buy a hdmi/dvi cable in this week, but for now I can only confirm that with bumblebee installed the vga connector works like a charm using both the intel and the nvidia gpu.

    • USB 2.0 ports
    • Ethernet port

    Re: ASUS u36sd support thread

    Has anybody come up with a fix for the fn-keys yet? Many of them seem to work but I cant get the volume ones to do!

    Also, am I supposed to install the nvidia restricted drivers and then bumblee, or just bumblee straight away?

    Thank you!

    Working
    • “ZZ” Icon (F1): Places the Notebook PC in suspend mode.
    • Radio Tower (F2): Toggles theinternal wireless LAN on.
    • Sun Down Icon (F5): Decreases the display brightness.
    • Sun Up Icon (F6): Increases the display brightness.
    • LCD Icon (F7): Toggles the display panel on and off.
    • LCD/Monitor Icons (F8): Toggles between the Notebook PC’s LCD display and an external monitor.
    • Num Lk (Ins): Toggles the numeric keypad on and off.



    Not Working
    • Crossed-out Touchpad (F9)
    • Crossed Speaker Icons (F10)
    • Speaker Down Icon (F11)
    • Speaker Up Icon (F12)
    • Stop (Up Arrow)
    • Play/Pause (Down Arrow)
    • Next (Right Arrow)
    • Previous (Left Arrow)


    Not Tested (yet)
    • Scr Lk (Del)


    observe that this is with an out of the box setup. Ubuntu 11.04, x86.
    Scroll Lock works. At least it shows up in when running "xev" -- none of the other non-working keys do.

    Doesn't anyone know how to fix them, or how to start at least? 'Twould be nice to get at least the volume keys to work.

    My biggest issues atm are:
    1. That the fn-key for disabling the touchpad does not work
    2. And that the media fn-keys does not work.
    3. Also that the web camera is upside down


    for more details, see my previous posts: here for example. I also recommend you to read through the whole thread.

    Thank you!
    First, read this.

    then add this ppa: Stable Bumblebee releases

    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bumblebee
    then, restart.

    to switch between the internal gpu and the nvidia gpu:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git
    Code:
    git clone git@github.com:mkottman/acpi_call.git
    cd acpi_call
    make
    sudo insmod acpi_call.ko
    I do not know if the following steps are really neccesary actually, but just to be shure:

    then first make a script executable:
    Code:
    chmod +x ./test_off.sh
    Now run this script:
    Code:
    ./test_off.sh

    to turn off the discrete graphics card:
    Code:
    echo '\_SB.PCI0.PEG0.GFX0.DOFF' > /proc/acpi/call
    to turn it back on:
    Code:
    echo '\_SB.PCI0.PEG0.GFX0.DON' > /proc/acpi/call
    I got this information from the following place: a linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspot.com post

    This should fix the fn-key issues

    Code:
    git clone git://git.iksaif.net/acpi4asus-dkms.git
    cd acpi4asus-dkms
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe asus-nb-wmi
    Though I have a diff. hardware (Asus U41S), the post has helped to get the ALL the fn-keys working even right up to 'xev'

    Good luck
