Broke my graphics
after using Ubuntu (12.04 amd64) for about 5 months, I seem to finally broke it up to a point where I can't fix it myself.
I am using a Samsung 700Z7C notebook with an Intel HD 4000 onboard graphic and a Nvidia GT650M external with Optimus. That is, I can use the Intel graphics for most of the time for less power consumption and switch to Nvidia if I need more performance.
As far as I read, only the Intel card is used by default. To use the Nvidia one I tried to install Bumblebee which should enable Optimus support on Linux.
Well, that went not as well as I hoped. Basically, it says I have to install "nvidia-glx" first. That, however, is in conflict with "xserver-xorg-core" and removed or at least damaged that crucial package.
I reinstalled XServer after that (which again removed nvidia-glx).
Sadly, now my "task bar" to the left of Unity lost all its transparency. It's kind of hard to describe it. If needed, I will upload a screenshot.
The two things I need help with are
1. bring back my system to its old state so at least Unity looks normal again
2. install Bumblebee and all its dependencies so I can use Nvidia Optimus
Would be great if someone could help me :)
