Wanna help me and the project?
Here's the way to make a donation, thank you.
This is a java program that provides a graphic interface that allows the user to:
Install the acpi_call kernel module (kernel would be recompiled automatically after each update);
Deactivate discrete GPU;
Automatically deactivate discrete GPU on every boot.

- Fedora since version 15
- Frugalware 1.5+

Ubuntu user? See here: acpi_call_GUI
after downloading the program, enter the directory acpi_call_GUI_systemd and launch
if you have downloaded the program in your home directory (for example typing
git clone https://github.com/marcoDallas/acpi_call_GUI_systemd.git), you only need to type in a terminal:
cd acpi_call_GUI_systemd sudo chmod +x install.sh sudo ./install.sh
Make sure you have all the packages needed to recompile the kernel! For example gcc, kernel-headers, kernel-devel etc.
Search the program in yuor dash and click on the icon, or type in a terminal:
sudo java -jar /usr/local/bin/acpi_call_GUI_systemd/acpi_call_GUI_systemd.jar
See here for a video guide: Video tutorial acpi_call_GUI
(the installation commands are different because the video was made in ubuntu, but the usage of the program is the same)
acpi_call module should be used with caution. I reccomend you to take a look to the readme of the acpi_call module: https://github.com/mkottman/acpi_call
Since version 1.4 you can try to automatically find a deactivation code!
Here you can read eventual outputs or errors:
