Hello,

I've installed Ubuntu 15.04 64 Bits to this ASUS ROG G750JM Laptop.

Installation went fine and I'm using it 2 weeks already.

The PROBLEM is I cant seems to setup the NVIDIA card, wich is a 850M, Ive tried this:


Nouveau Drivers, they work fine, but of course no 3D acceleration, sucks
NVIDIA Drivers tested from Ubuntu, works, only with 1 monitor, when I plug my other 2 monitors, no video, black screen, Ive followed this tutorial, is the only one that works: http://vxlabs.com/2015/02/05/solving-the-ubuntu-14-04-nvidia-346-nvidia-prime-black-screen-issue/
Drivers From Nvidia.com, doesnt work at all.


So the 2nd option is good, but how can I setup the configuration for 2 more monitors?

Xorg.con is this:

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reply.

I tried this tutorial.

http://mylinuxexplore.blogspot.ro/2014/03/solved-nvidia-cant-access-secondary-gpu.html

Apparently works, but the obtained FPS by glxgears is only 60fps, same as the Intel video card via nouveau.

Any clues?

Finally i got it working properly, following this tutorial:
