eeepc-1015PN vga helper scripts

PPA description

The packages provided in this PPA are GUI helper scripts to select the used GPU on the Asus EeePC 1015PN for ubuntu (Supported Releases: precise - trusty)

You can either choose 'exclusive VGA Modes' for the Intel GMA3150 GPU (embedded in the Atom CPU) and the Nvidia GT218 chip or run in 'Optimus Mode' to use the Intel GPU as default and start applications using the nvidia chip on demand. (via bumblebee)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mtron/eee1015pn
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install eee1015pn-acpitools

To initialize the acpi GPU state you need to reboot after the install completed. Now set the default GPU & switch VGA Modes by using the 'Vga Selector' Gui (it's in the 'System Tools' menu section).
