Configuring Environment for OpenCL on Ubuntu with Optimus

05

First of All, My machine is as follows: Dell Inspiron notebook N5110 Core i5 with Nvidia GT 525M with optimus technology,

This optimus technology is simply the device have two graphics cards, one Intel and the other is the Nvidia one.

This is used to save laptop's battery by disabling the Nvidia card that is relying on GPUs when low graphics processing is needed and doing that on the intel one, and when high performance is needed the work is done on the Nvidia GPUs are redirected to the intel one after being done.

So it's FCIS third year, ha?!!

Ok, let me see..

First, FCIS third year is not hard at all, it is very interesting and you'll learn so much from it if you wish just try to really free yourself from anything except your studies to enjoy it.

Second, the best thing to learn from during this year in some subjects will be the projects you do, so try to start in those projects as early as possible to give each project enough time and innovate..

Third, what I am going to write next depends mostly on my knowledge and experience that might be outdated as I was in this place may be three years a go and it depends on my way of thinking and opinions.

So, lets see the subjects you do have in it

 

Happy 2 Ubuntu years..

Hello, Nearly two years have  passed since my move to Ubuntu gotta say, It's an interesting BSOD-less experience :P Of course I won't claim it's perfectly stable but for me it's way more stable than windows. kind of I had some problems most are solved, others needed workarounds, but mostly what i need to do is done at the end thanks to ALLAH The continues problem was that my surrounding colleagues are not Ubuntu familiar/users and I'm working on that problem right now ;D Anyway, I'll list now the apps I found useful during those 2 years and I use them frequently. First, for archiving purposes, this is my current desktop screenshot

my internship was as Testing Software Engineer, writing unit tests on JUnit framework, of course with JAVA for the CHS project. kind of i was pretty amazed by that product and the system that was followed there, very organized company indeed. plus i was working with ZIZO on the same team, and seen how effective he was (fact) and how early does he come to work :D !!

Helper Apps

Al Salamu 3alykom Wa Ra7matULLAH Wa Barakato

here are some apps i frequently use which does help daily lowering the number of my clicks and buttons pressing

1. AutoKey

This App.

lets u assign shortcuts to some text, as i always write ":SA" and it replaces it automatically with "Al Salamu 3alykom Wa Ra7matULLAH Wa Barakato" and u can add shortcuts as much as u want, and it replaces text anywhere u r using the shortcut note. this is a Linux App that already exist in the repository, for windows there was an App called Texter

Ubuntu Code Names

i just wanted to know the meanings of the complicated names of the Ubuntu releases, maybe it's complicated for me, i've never heard such words before "intrepid , Jaunty , Ibex,...." so i did some search to find them, and here are the meanings first all the code names are composed of 2 words an adjective and an animal, both starting with the same character where releases are sorted alphabetically except the first two releases
