  Acer Aspire E1-571G (Acer Aspire 5750G)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Works perfectly but some minor changes in Intel graphic when using Nvidia proprietary drivers . Backlight function did not work properly in freshly installed Mint.
i have to do some minor changing after installing Nvidia proprietary graphics driver. changes are given below and works only when i select Intel graphic card From Nvidia X server settings.

sudo touch /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

and adding these lines in 20-intel.conf

Section "Device"
Identifier "card0"
Driver "intel"
Option "Backlight" "intel_backlight"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection



and save the file .then after rebooting .brightness and hardware function key works perfectly

.but this changes do not work to Nvidia Gpu when i select Nvidia from Nvidia X server settings. backlight only works with intel after rebooting or logout session from x server

What doesn't work:

Nvidia Graphic card backlight does not work when using Nvidia Gpu from Nvidia X server settings
