Enable Nvidia Optimus XUbuntu 13.10

Enabling Nvidia Optimus on XUbuntu 13.10 is really simple.

Just install this packages:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 nvidia-prime

And then edit the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, nvidia prime seems to replace the default value of the greeter-session variable with unity-greeter (default in ubuntu) instead of lightdm-gtk-greeter.

The conf file should look like this:


[SeatDefaults]
greeter-session=lightdm-gtk-greeter
user-session=ubuntu
display-setup-script=/sbin/hybrid-power
