Useful plasmoid for someone with 2 gpus. But please keep kde-look and kde-apps separated. There is enough pollution by qt-apps here. Plasmoids should be presented on kde-look.org, and not cross posted

Strange. I posted on kde-look only. Maybe platforms communicate, that's why they are "polluted"

There's something wrong with vga_switcheroo. Does it work without the plasmoid? Is the path correct?

Switching cards in runlevel 3 using "ECHO DIS > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch" for discrete and "ECHO IGD > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch" for integrated graphics works fine.

Here is the content of my switch file:

0:IGD:+:Pwr:0000:00:02.0
1:DIS: :Off:0000:01:00.0

Nevertheless, Switchy crashes (even 1.0 release). Any suggestions?

Could you please post backtrace? It would really be useful here.

Also what distro are you using?

I am using openSUSE 11.4 64bit with KDE SC 4.6.3. My integrated graphics card is an Intel Arrandale chipset (uses free i915 driver) and the discrete adapter as an ATI MobilityRadeon 5650 (uses the free radeon driver). My XOrg stack is version 7.6_1.9.3.

Let me know wether you need any more information or contact me on Skype (andreas.demmer), ICQ (103924771) or Jabber (andreas.demmer.1977@googlemail.com).

The backtrace is following:

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
