 Installing AMD/Intel Hybrid Graphic System Drivers in Mint 16


Since i have combination of Radeon 6490M and Intel HD 3000 hybrid graphic system, i tested this.

In ubuntu 13.10, and so in Mint 16, hybrid graphics are now full supported.

I have few re-installation until i figured it out how to properly install drivers.

This is my steps:

sudo apt-get install fglrx

sudo reboot

After that drivers are installed. Now is necessary to install pxpress package that switch graphics:

sudo apt-get install fglrx-pxpress

You should now get message that discrete card is activated. Reboot system again.

After restart you can see that Radeon card is active with this:

inxi -G

Now we need AMD Catalyst Center for switching graphic cards:

sudo apt-get install fglrx-amdcccle

sudo reboot

After reboot start AMD Catalyst Center with this:

sudo amdcccle

And change graphic to Integrated to see if everything works.

Always start amdccle with sudo when switching graphic cards.

Everything works great for me now.

Everything in this worked but my battery draw was still high even though I switched to Intel graphics. What I did was run
sudo amdconfig --adapter=all --initial
which configured my xorg configuration and now my battery life is just like it was on Windows.

I am getting tired of this OS. I cannot get 2 screens working with internal and external card. (Intel and AMD Radeon)

Time after time I have to reinstall the complete OS with programs to get my 2 screens back alive. I like Linux Mint, but Windows has better options for that.......

The way this works in Linux Mint 17.2. I also use a hybrid VGA Intel HD 4000 and AMD Radeon HD 8670M.
