    Right now my laptop is running on battery and temp is 40 celsius.

    Fyi, my grub line is:
    quiet splash pcie_aspm=force drm.vblankoffdelay=1 i915.semaphores=1

    I also believe the grub-parameters do add some battery-time, no huge amounts but still. I use the same parameters.

    How is the temperature on your laptop? Mine is idling at around 60-65C with AC and I think it is a bit lower running on battery. I usually check the sensors command a couple of times per day.

    I'm not really sure whether or not that is normal, I'd really like it to be lower so that the fans could shutdown now and then.

    I have read a couple of forum posts both regarding Ubuntu and Arch and it seems that in some cases the UX32VD can go as low as 7-8W in consumption and thus also lowering the temperature to somewhere around 50C.

    Any ideas?
    I just did a sensors test here, and on AC its the following:

    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +53.0C (crit = +108.0C)

    asus-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    temp1: +53.0C

    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Physical id 0: +56.0C (high = +87.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    Core 0: +54.0C (high = +87.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    Core 1: +55.0C (high = +87.0C, crit = +105.0C)

    Battery:

    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +51.0C (crit = +108.0C)

    asus-isa-0000

    Well the problem with my laptop freezing when re-plugging the power left me no choice. I ditched the xorg-edgers ppa.

    I went back to kernel 3.5.0-22 and I must say that I am glad because now the only thing not working are the brightness keys.

    What is working is:
    • No more banding
    • primusrun & optirun running like a charm
    • usb devices working with power plugged in and on battery
    • connecting detaching external monitor via mini vga with no problems
    • longer battery life 5-6 hours
    • no problem connecting power when computer is running (with kernel 3.7 everytime a kernel panic)


    And for what's not working (the brightness keys) a workable sollution. I am running Gnome Shell and I added the following extension:
    https://extensions.gnome.org/extensi...tness-control/

    I enabled Intel SNA acceleration:
    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/how-t...ration-in.html

    I also installed Bumblebee and Primus and the Nvidia Experimental drivers 310:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee
    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/11/primu...search-results
    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/use-n...ivers-310.html

    So for now I am a happy camper.
    Hi... I am using Ubuntu 12.10 with my UX32VD without problems using kernel 3.5.0-18. After ubuntu updated the kernel my modules are not loaded automatically anymore. If I manually choose kernel 3.5.0-18 it works quite all right as you describe, but only with this kernel.

    Is there anything I might have missed to get it working in newer versions of Ubuntu kernel?

    Thanks in advance

    Re: Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A and UX32VD

    I can't get bumbelbee working with kernels above 3.6 (which are raring) The reason to install raring kernel is to get Fn keys working. The full log is here http://pastebin.com/8vf77BUc
    The main problem focused on missed apport module
    Code:
     File "/usr/share/apport/package-hooks/dkms_packages.py", line 22, in <module>
        import apport
    ImportError: No module named apport
    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.7.0-030700-generic (x86_64)

    It works great for me, when using the current xorg-edgers kernel.

    Re: Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A and UX32VD

    Do you mean this one ?

    http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/xorg-edgers

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa 
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install <package name>
    How about Bumblebee did you touch some settings ?
    It still not work for me on 3.8
    Code:
     uname -r
    3.8.0-030800-generic
    dem@dem-UX32VD:~$ optirun firefox
    [   64.813612] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver

    (which I got through xorg-edgers)

    The reason your installation of bumblebee doesn't work is probably because it can't load the 'nvidia' module

    try to do a
    Code:
    dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-current
    DKMS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic...Module_Support) will then try to recompile the module (or least some abstraction layer, as the module itself is closed-source, don't pin me down here ) for your current kernel. If it fails with some kind of 'not supported' message DKMS does not support you current kernel (the case on most mainline kernels, correct me if wrong). The xorg-edgers kernelmodule should compile fine though.

    Then retry

    Re: Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A and UX32VD

    peter_rus,
    It based on information from xorg-edgers repository where kernel has been removed. If you still able to install from there, how is it possible ?
    Ok, I got Bumbelbee working on 3.6.3 quantal mainline kernel
    Code:
    dem@dem-UX32VD:~$ uname -r
    3.6.3-030603-generic
    dem@dem-UX32VD:~$ optirun glxgears
    3297 frames in 5.0 seconds = 659.367 FPS
    3318 frames in 5.0 seconds = 663.464 FPS
    3326 frames in 5.0 seconds = 665.136 FPS
    3327 frames in 5.0 seconds = 665.310 FPS
    So, I have also screen brightness control working, but not keyboard backlight. I may swith off it like so -
    Code:
     echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/asus\:\:kbd_backlight/brightness
    Solution to get it working by installing this http://www.linlap.com/asus_ux32vd (comment from Alec) -
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dkms
    sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/asus-wmi-dkms_0.2_all.deb
    sudo reboot
    Just cause volume control not operational.
