Hi, could you provide some compilation instructions (even better: packages!) for the less adept among us? Thanks a lot.

What system are you on?
Usually it's
mkdir build && cd build;
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr;
make
sudo make install

I'm planning deep changes for the application (including primus and bumblebee support).

Thanks! I use Kubuntu right now, and it installed fine after I installed libpci-dev.

How does Switchable Graphics work regarding power consumption? Can it/does it turn off the card that is not being used, or does it run both at all times? The biggest benefit for me would be to have a GUI for switcheroo. Or, does it require both cards to be activated, and what it does is just to set which is going to be active?

One more question: Is left-click on the icon in the system tray supposed to do anything?

Thanks a lot.

The unused card is kept off.

You can switch card with right click and logout.

Is there a KDED4 crash? Could you open an issue with the backtrace?

I'll do a PKGBUILD, ebuild for gentoo and maybe a deb when i'll be sure it's rock stable.
