Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Intel Graphics Card Working G31 / 33
Oct 21, 2010
Just spent about 4 hours upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 thinking it would fix my graphics problems. Basically I have no 3d acceleration of any kind, is there any way i can load the intel drivers? Because what I'm using now is really crappy.
Can i just change something in my xorg to intel and it will load that driver ? I've tried the "hardware drivers" thing but it does not show anything.
Just fitted an Inno3D (I-7300LE-G4E3) graphics card and I get a distorted boot up screen, a virtually unreadble boot menu (lots of extra white bits all over the screen) and when the system is booting the black screen with "booting from .." and the underscore at the end, is covered with white commas (?!), then the login screen pops up for a fraction of a second, then get a blank screen and no signal-cant get anything after this (or from the vga port on the pc)-I ve tried logging in even though I cant see anything, but no music , nothing.
Thought I might have to download drievers AFTER I d installed it, but as I had this problem, I removed it and tried to download driers before installation. Not sure which of the 4 to try, but tried 2 and neither works-GDebi is offered as an app to open them but nothing happens, nothing happens if I just click on them and when I try and install them from a terminal with the script from the nVidia site, it says unable to open them.
I am unable to get the hdmi audio for from my graphics card to work. I do not have any speakers to test the other two, and redundant, sound cards .My graphics card is the Nvidia gtx 285, I auto installed the drivers via ubuntu. It does not show up in the hardware tab of "sound preferences". It's not muted, I can't find anything relating to sound in nvidia-settings.but here is my aplay -l:Quote:
I would like to know if I will be able to work on my laptop with 11.4 , someone knows if something changed with hang/freeze issues? Currently I have installed 11.1 but since repositories were removed no updates or new software for me so I'm considering installing something new.
I'm a Fedora 12 user on an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop. I'm currently using kernel 188.8.131.52-99.fc12.x86_64, graphics driver xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.9.1-1.fc12.x86_64, and mesa 7.7-4. My graphics card is an Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07).
I've been having some problems getting my 3D acceleration to work. Although it worked correctly in Fedora 11, I have not been able to get it to work yet in Fedora 12.
The output of glxinfo shows:
Running glxinfo with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose shows:
I found a similar message here: [url]
However, I'm not sure if this is the same problem I have. What does the drm_intel_bo_busy message mean?
I have a Dell Dimension 3000 with an integrated Intel 865g graphics card that I am trying to use in X on Centos 5.4 i386. The "810" driver (what Centos configures by default) works, but will not display at 1600x900. Strangely enough, it will actually work at higher resolutions such as 1600x1200, but 1600x900 fails, even with 915resolution and 855resolution. The "intel" xorg driver (included with Centos) locks up the entire machine when starting X, so thats a no go as well.
The "fbdev" driver works but, once again, won't display 1600x900, because that resolution doesn't work properly with the version of the intelfb kernel module that Centos bundles. Fedora Core 12 works perfectly fine at 1600x900 on the machine. I think that if I could get a newer xorg installation (or perhaps just a driver) going under Centos, it might fix the problem. I couldn't find any 3rd party repos containing such packages. I'd really rather run Centos on the machine, due to the package stability (yes, I see the irony here).
I have just reinstalled testing on a Samsung Q30 and I cant get X to start. I am just left with a blank screen and ctrl+alt+Fn does nothing. I had a previous install of testing that worked fine but it might have been running a previous version of the kernel, or I had installed a bug fix to do with 915resoultion that I can't remember about. Booting off a Slax live cd works fine but I have had similar problems with Knoppix and Ubuntu.
I am running LXDE but I previously tried Gnome and had the same problem. Running xander displays cant open display Running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg returns nothing, as does Xfree86 -configure There is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf or installed by default, I have tried running startx with a custom xorg.conf and the automatically generated one from -configure. The automatic one did not include any resolutions and was configured for a dual head set up although there was only one monitor connected.
I thought it may be the same problem as this:[url]
But I have tried following the bug fixes on that site and I have had no luck.
I am running kubuntu 9.10 on a dell inspiron 14 with an intel GM45 graphics card. When I run 3d games like Nexuiz, openarena and tremulous I get really random performance. Sometimes things are totally playable with somewhere between 50-80 fps and other times I get maybe 4 fps and everything takes forever to load. These effects persists between logouts, X restarts and reboots! I get no errors when I run things in console either.I never really play games much but when something doesn't work...
i'm trying since ubuntu karmic to set up a xorg.conf for a special purpose. I've a htpc connected to my tv. Intel GMA 4500, DVI->HDMI-cable connected, Lucid Lynx installed. When the machine boots with the TV powered on, everything is perfect. xrandr reports all valid modes on output "DP2". Without the TV powerd on, Lucid starts in the low graphics mode, with the funny zenity-message. So far, i managed to disable all useless outputs (VGA1, HDMI1, DP1, HDMI2), leaving DP2 enabled. I managed this by assigning outputs to monitors and adding Option "Ignore" "True" to the corresponding monitor-sections. My only remaining problem is, that the intel-driver reports no connected monitor on output DP2. The TV is connected, but shut off. Has anyone got a hint to tell the driver to ignore the presence of a monitor?
After 2 months without any problems, my second screen plugged on my laptop has stopped working. It works on my windows partition. When I start the computer, I see the login screen on both screens. When I enter the password, both screen turn to black. If I unplug the extra monitor, the laptop start normally.I'm on Ubuntu Natty, my laptop is a Thinkpad E420s with Intel HD graphics, i5 cpu, 4gb ram.
I recently installed openSUSE on a new Toshiba and i'm getting very choppy video while watching videos on ....., justin.tv, etc. The video is fine as long as I don't full screen. However, when I try to fullscreen a stream on justin.tv or a ..... video, it instantly becomes choppy and video is extremely delayed in relation to the sound. The sound still continues at it's regular pace, however the video lags behind and is just choppy in general.Also, not sure if this helps, but i'm running an i3 2310M.
I activated my graphics card on Linux Mint which is Nvidia GEFORCE GT 130M. Now when I boot up, after bios the loading screen looks like in the picture (sorry its crappy quality). When it gets to the login screen and afterwards it is just blank, but i can tell its running underneath because i can shut down by doing ctrl alt backspace and then tab and enter. I tried entering recovery mode but it was the same. Atm im using a live cd.
I'm having a problem here with my graphics card. Until not very long ago I was using the controller Ubuntu downloaded for me. However I recently downloaded another one from the ATI page, called ati-driver-installer-11-3-x86.x86_64.run and installed it. So far, I've encountered two new problems:
1. The ATI Catalyst Control Center would not open after I setup the Tear Free Desktop.
2. The computer is running slow. Files take longer to open, minimizing and maximizing windows takes longer. Wi-fi connection takes longer to connect, etcetera. Overall, everything is going slow.
Are these problems related? I would like to uninstall the driver as the computer was working just fine before. In addition to this, I have firefox 4.0 and the colors on most of the images are darker than they should. The images look fine on other browsers except firefox. I read I had to do type "about:config" in the address bar, find "gfx.color_management.mode" and change the value from 2 to 0. What did I exactly do there? I took the advice from this thread: [URL]
I have a Dell Vostro 200 with the above wireless card in it and I cant get it to work. I have been on Intel's website and downloaded e1000-8.0.18 and installed as the instructions. But it is still greyed out on the Network Manager. I have just installed Ubuntu Desktop the latest current version.
I have a z9 volari Graphics card that opensuse 1.2 is recognising but the xgi driver is not present. I get the following when I startx:
auth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.4650
X.Org X Server 1.6.5 Release Date: 2009-10-11 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX
Perhaps my last post about this was too long and hence why nobody responded. So i will try and keep it simple and let the experts advise me.
I have tried installing an rpm that I got from rpm search. Namely xorg-x11-driver-video-xgi-1.5.0-6.1.i586 which seemed to install but when I did a query it said it was not installed, but when I tried to do an install again it said it was already installed ??
There is also a file called xserver-xorg-video-sis_0.9.3.orig.tar.gz which i got from this site. I have not managed to extract it properly yet but will look into that myself. It appears to have in it a makefile, so I presume it is source files and I could really do with some help in that.
Just got World of Warcraft Installed and when I start the game after I get past the 2 cinema's while I'm trying to click yes on the rules the screen seems to bee flashing over and over and over. I was thinking maybe the 3d accelerator isn't installed or maybe I need to install something because its Intel?
I have a new Thinkpad t510 laptop with an intel centrino wireless N card (no bluetooth). I installed ubuntu a couple weeks ago after I got another hard drive in the expansion bay. I have the drive partitioned into two sections, 250gb for file storage, and 250gb for the linux OS. Currently no other OS is installed on the other harddrive.
I have had everything perfect for the past couple weeks, but once i installed some updates today, my wireless fails to work now. Just some general info that you might ask me, lspci | grep Network, returns
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 06) 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 Furthermore, on the top right of my screen, my wireless is grey'd out and says no network devices available on hover.
Im trying to connect to my college wireless network. I have looked a thinkwiki and no one has posted any bugs. Any ideas on getting it working again?
! I'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intel� 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...
I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...
I've installed Suse linux 11.3 (kernel 184.108.40.206-0.5) on my brand new computer HP all in one 5130. Everything worked incredibly well : Wifi, wireless keyboard and mouse, sound, webcam.. There is only one remaining issue : I get a very poor resolution (1280x1024) instead of the 1920x1080 allowed by the screen. The graphic card is an intel chipset (HD graphics) integrated to an intel core i3 CPU. Here is (part of) the X11.org log :
Code: X.org X Server 1.8.0 Release Date: 2010-04-02 [ 15.124] X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 [ 15.124] Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX [ 15.124] Current Operating System: Linux linux-7xhd 220.127.116.11-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-10-25 08:40:12 +0200 x86_64 [Code]....
I have recently started using openshot to edit video and have found it very good. Previously I have been using Kino and openshot certainly seems more intuitive. Trouble is the more ambitious my productions the more juddery and prone to crashing the program becomes So I am thinking of an upgrade. At the moment I am using on board graphics. Or would more ram be the first thing to go for.
trying to get Ubuntu to work properly on a Del Dimension 2400. It has on board Intel Extreme graphics card. [URL] It installs and but runs slowly when the ubuntu GUI is up and running. The CPU is maxed out for quite small tasks. Selecting additional drivers gives nothing, so I guess it isn't running the graphics card in hardware acceleration - which is slowing down the system. I want to buy a graphics card to use on this Dell PC. It uses PCI expansion cards. I'm thinking of ebaying a second hand graphics card.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with an Intel 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller, and no sound output. I have both pulseaudio and ALSA installed. I have already checked with
Code: alsamixer that my sound isnt muted and aplay -l outputs this Code: xxxx@xxxx-ubuntu:~$ aplay -l
Okay first off I'm a noob with Ubuntu. I've been trying to get Warcraft 3 and WoW to run on ubuntu via Wine, so far I managed to get them installed and running but I always have problems with graphics (poor rendering as oposed to when I ran them on windows). So I figured that maybe the graphics card/driver aren't installed correctly.
On the terminal I got this information: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) I checked System > Administration > Additional Drivers When it finishes searching for drivers I get the message "No proprietary drives are in use on this system" (I have no idea what this means, I read elsewhere that I should check this) So um, I don't know If any of this is useful or necessary to fix my problem.
