#StackBounty: #16.04 #mouse #keyboard-layout #udev #logitech Can't remap keys from g600 mouse

Bounty: 100

I’ve followed the most useful guide I’ve found on how to remap keys from a mouse that also pretends to be a keyboard faithfully, but the bit where I use udev to remap the keys isn’t working, so the later steps mean I remap important keyboard keys with xbindkeys. My /etc/udev/hwdb.d/70-g600mouse.hwdb is:

evdev:input:b0003v046DpC24A*  
KEYBOARD_KEY_7004c=zenkakuhankaku  
KEYBOARD_KEY_7001f=katakanahiragana

Any clues on what is wrong?

#StackBounty: #16.04 #suspend #screen #macbook Macbook screen turns back on after suspend

Bounty: 50

I decided to switch to Ubuntu from mac os and it mostly works fine, but one problem appeared:

When I press ‘Suspend’ or close the lid of my macbook, the screen turns black (like it should) and after around 3-5 seconds the screen turns on again with the login screen.

I’m sorry if anyone already asked this question, but I didn’t find a similar problem with a google search.

Edit: Model Number is A 1502 EMC 2835

#StackBounty: #16.04 #drivers #nvidia #intel-graphics #nvidia-prime Switching to Intel HD graphics 530 from NVIDIA GTX 950M

Bounty: 50

Let me state this first, I know that questions related to this have already been asked; but I’m still posting this question because none of the available information could solve the problem.

My laptop is msi gl 62 6qd, i7 6700HQ with intel HD graphics 530 and nvidia GTX 950M. I’m using ubuntu 16.04.2. I had to do the nouveau.modeset=0 stuff to get the display working after first boot and install the proprietary nvidia drivers. The power consumption of the nvidia card is quite high though, compared to the intel card. Also there is screen tearing when scrolling fast or watching videos (like vsync problem). So what I want to do is switch to the intel card.

What I have tried so far:
1. Use the nvidia xserver settings application to switch to intel prime profile. Result: It asks to log out and in for the profile switch. If I do that, I can use the intel card. But if I reboot pc, as soon as I login, everything freezes. And I mean absolutely everything, can’t even toggle caps lock or num lock. I have to hard reboot, go to tty session, login there and switch back to nvidia prime profile (using prime-select), do another hard reboot before I can use the laptop properly again.
2. I originally asked this for 16.10 where nvidia drivers weren’t updated to nvidia-375 and I added a graphics ppa to try to solve it then. In 16.04.2 they are updated, but same problems remain.
3. I have tried looking to see if there is any way to remove the proprietary drivers and then switch to intel graphics. But it appears that the switching technology (something like prime) is only provided by the proprietary drivers.

And no, there is no way of switching between the cards in my BIOS. Any help with regards to this is appreciated.

Edit: If there is a way to remove any drivers related to nvidia and use intel graphics instead, that is fine too. In Windows, the nvidia settings say that the display is connected to the intel card. I don’t understand why then ubuntu chooses the nvidia card by default.

Edit2: As suggested by eyoung100, I have installed bumblebee and configured as follows. I set the correct values for driver, kernal-driver, library paths and PMMethod (I tried both auto and bbswitch) in /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf. The conf file says that changes to this file need a server restart (I’m not sure what they mean by server), so I restarted laptop. Then started sudo bumblebeed --daemon. The state of the card is supposed to be changeable after that using sudo tee /proc/acpi/bbswitch <<<OFF. But its producing error saying device 0000:01:00.0 is in use by driver 'nvidia', refusing OFF. The wiki says that the driver needs to be unloaded if this happens. Now I’m not sure how to do that and whether I actually need to do that OR I have done something wrong before this thats leading to the error.

#StackBounty: #16.04 #network-manager #dell #power-management network interface of Dell XPS 13 9360 consumes too much power

Bounty: 50

On a Dell XPS 13 9360, running Ubuntu 16.04 and kernel 4.7.01, battery life is dismal. Powertop indicates power usage of Network interface: wlp58s0 (ath10k_pci) of sometimes 20w.

This -combined with a recurring issue with pulseaudio- really kills the battery life. Any tips on how to bring this down? I have already tried different kernels.
