You are sure the both vgas are working on linux? If you can i will give my Latitude 3540 to you! hahaha
By the f***** Dynamic Mode switchable graphics and the impossibility to turn the intel adapter off by bios settings, Its impossible to turn on the Venus Pro Radeon - HD 8850m on ubuntu!

Hello,
this laptop, Dell Latitude 3540 was certified with pre-installed Ubuntu only, it may not work well with other stock images.

If your AMD graphic controller switching is not working as expected, you could try to install the proprietary video driver for it. Or download the latest driver from AMD[1] directly and give it a try.
And if you're not satisified with any part of it, open a bug to help it to go further will be great.

Regards.
