Review of Linux Compatibility

The Acer Aspire E1-772G is a 17 inch notebook with Intel Core i5 processor. The notebook has good Linux support and is even provided by some retailers with Linux pre-installed.

If Linux is installed by hand on the E1-772G the graphic driver is a small hurdle that needs to be mastered. The notebook is equipped with two graphic chipsets, i.e. an Intel chipset and the NVIDIA GeForce 802M:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
 Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device 0821
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] (rev ff)

The system can switch between the two chipsets depending on the needed performance and envisaged power consumtion. This feature needs the installation of Bumblebee, which can be installed since Ubuntu 13.01 quite simple with the help of the package management system:

sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia bbswitch-dkms primus
