what i need is to enable the lamest hardware acceleration to get gnome-shell or unity 3d working.
- i know about bumblebee/ironhide/bumblebee-project. but i didn't
understand how to use it directly with x11 server to enable the use
of those advanced environment.
- i don't care about what card will give me gnome-shell/unity3d working. i wonder if there is a way to use only intel (but accellerated!)
- i really don't care about power save
i'm tired to be reverted to gnome-session-fallback or unity 2d.
please tell me if there is a way or if i will be stuck with gnome 2.* until i'll buy another laptop.
Yeah! I figured out how to get the hardware acceleration of the Intel graphic hd 3000 to enable unity 3d and gnome-shell.
It seems that ubuntu tries to install drivers for both intel hd 3000 and nvidia-optimus card. result? a mess. X11 server can't decide what driver to use and revert to VESA.
So the solution is really simple:
plus remove all other display driver xserver-xorg-video-* except xserver-xorg-video-intel. reboot the computer and tadan! at least you can enjoy a little acceleration!
