i'm a true newb with ubuntu. I've tried to find online how to get my graphics card up and running but all the places i check are way over my head. I've been a windows guy forever. Basically the graphics work on my laptop but won't do anything 3d right now. This makes me think i'm not using a correct driver. I've got no clue where to dl the from the ubuntu interface or what to do.
Anyway I used a workaround to get it working on my Toshiba Portege laptop. However from it stemmed slower graphics, no splash, et cetera. That didn't worry me too much. However, I am now at the stage where I am getting arrays of different issues (that don't necessarily relate) and I would like to just have a nice clean install. I have been upgrading since 8.something and I long for freshness. My files are allready off.
Has anyone patched the kernel or anything? I'm purely a newbish end user and have not been following launchpad or anything. I did the workaround the week of the release. any fixes floating around? If not, I'll go back to 9.10.
I recently installed the Intel 855GM Drivers and I m quite satisfied with my experience with the improved system perfrmance :] However. I am curious as to if there is a fix for the Compiz aspect. From my previous understanding as of about 3 weeks ago there weren't any available patched or fixes for that particular issue.
Just installed Ubuntu 11.04, and everything is perfect, except my video card. Ubuntu 11.04 refuses to run my labtops integrated Intel 855GM video card in OpenGL hardware accelerated mode. Everything is really slow/unresponsive compared to earlier versions, windows are rendering painfully slow etc. From what I can gather, problem is, 11.04/newest Compiz is OpenGL 1.4, and my video card only supports 1.3 (?). Now, I have tried downgrading Compiz following this link: [url]
No luck so far.. OpenGL is still software only. Do I need to edit some ini-file or xorg.conf, or am I missing something here?
After upgrade to Slackware 13.0 (then 13.1, then -current) I still have problems using the secondary video output on my old and trusted Toshiba Satellite (Intel chipset 852GM/855GM). This used to work with Slackware 12.x! The problem manifests itself by jumpiness on the secondary port. The jumps appear with any video update (eg. window focusing, but also with the updates from the Clock or the CPU graph).
This is very annoying, particularly because I use this machine to teach. In only one combination (with a NEC NP-100 projector) I can solve the problem by reprogramming the Framerate to 70 or 75 Hz. After reading many mails and references on the 'net, testing a lot of the solutions to no avail, I'm more confused than ever. And no visible improvement either. Here are a couple of the tests I did:
1) I added i915.modeset=1 to LILO. This helped in the sense that now, in text mode, the 2nd video output remains working, which is slightly useful. But no improvement after startx.
2) Xorg.0.log says:
(II) intel: Driver for Intel.....
then, continues with:
(II) VESA: driver for VESA chipsets: vesa
Why are both drivers signalled here? (solved this by generating a new config with Xorg -configure, but no difference)
3) The intel driver says (in Xorg.log): compiled for 1.7.6, while X -version says 1.7.7 (is this significant?)
4) After this, the line
(EE) intel(1): No kernel modesetting driver detected appears in the Xorg log. This wasn't there when no xorg.conf was present.
5) On the other hand, without an xorg.conf, there was a line complaining about a missing 'fbdev', this seems solved afterwards.
6) Just in case, tried software cursor on/off.
7) Maybe unrelated: After enabling modesetting (which should have been enabled by default),LCD brightness resumes correctly after 'sleep'(before, it would switch to low brightness every time).
When I installed Arch Linux on my Toshiba L10 Intel Centrino laptop, it detected my video card and monitors correctly "out-of-the box". Now that I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat", it has not.
How can I configure Ubuntu to use the correct Intel drivers with my Intel 82852/855GM graphics card?
I installed Maverick earlier today on a Dell XPS M1210, and everything works beautifully, except for one thing: the wireless card. It is an Intel 3945ABG wireless card, and I've tried searching around and have found nothing,
I am totally new to Ubuntu but have been tinkering for a week now. Can't say I have figured a thing out, thank God for Google, Linux is just not for the novice user. I guess thats where Windows comes in but I really like the stability of Linux and the fact it is Open Source and free. Wish I was a cool programmer or someone who has worked with the OS for a while, that would make things a lot easier. Where can I study up and get a little more educated about what I am doing? Anyway hopefully someone can answer the driver question. Lastly is there anyway to get Hardware Acceleration if using an Intel i5 system?
I had to send my laptop back for repairs, so I have an older Dell 1720 laptop that I threw the Hard Drive into, similar specs, just the wireless card is different. So what i need to do is somehow activate the driver for the Intel 3945 wireless card in this dell laptop.
A recent update made my intel 830 unusable with kernel modesetting enabled, so I disabled it. However, I get "No kernel modesetting driver detected" errors when I start X with the intel driver. Is there a way to make the intel driver not require KMS?
Having trouble with video and windows/links/applications etc on 10.10, just came from windows 7 with everything fine. had 10.04 on my desktop with nvidia card, was easy to get that driver installed, but intel i cant find the correct information. on a laptop, compaq presario cq56. can anyone help out?
Feel stuck between Debian and BSD worlds - not sure where to turn.
Running GNU/kFreeBSD debian 8.1-1-amd64 and base system working. Can not get X or xrandr to co-operate and use proper resolution of 1680x1050. I believe the basis of this is that it using the VESA drivers and instead should be using the INTEL drivers.
I have no 'pkg_add' for ports, plus obviously no Debian repos will help for this .... unless there are some specific kFreeBSD repos I dont know about? I can post more details on the system, but am hoping that there are other options besides compiling. I can do that if need be, but not even sure which one to use. Will these work on this system?

I have a new netbook, a Lenovo Z360 and everything except one thing works "out-of-the-box". The one thing is the brightness control. I think it's the same bug like in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/538256 But I don't get anything in dmesg, it's just not working. setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=?? don't work, too. nomodeset acpi_backlight=vendor don't work, too. I'm using Fedora 14 with KDE, 18.104.22.168-83.fc14.i686 and the intel drivers. Maybe somebody knows a workaround, usually brightness control works very well in the newer distributions. I had like 4 notebooks all with Fedora installed and brightness works, especially with the open source intel drivers I didn't expect any difficulties.
I made a kernel module package for opensuse 11.2, kernel 2.6.31-12 (latest update at time of writing). It supports opengl (glxgears has 2000 frames in 5 s), 2D is faster than by using vesa only. But compiz/kwin effects dont work. Open Arena works but is not as fast as under windows xp. I think its a xorg.conf issue.
need to upgrade my intel graphics drivers for Compiz Fusion (3d desktop effects) suse linux 11.1 kernel:- 22.214.171.124-9-pae my hardware configuration is as follows intel dg41rq motherboard 2gb kingston ram intel dual core cpu 2.5 ghz current graphics drivers:- 4 series chipset integrated graphics controllers
So I decided that I would swap over to Slackware on my HP dv2000 notebook as Linux mint wasn't encouraging me to use the command line too much and I decided to get thrown in the deep end with the scripting side of things.
Basically I can't work out how to install WCID off the Slackware DVD, I have gotten as far as extracting it (extracted to /home/ but I am unsure how to execute it, I have read the install docs and can't make much sense of it, could someone possibly help out and pass on the code to install.
Are Intel wireless cards compatible with non-intel-based laptops? In my case I wish to upgrade the current Atheros-based mini pci express wifi card with the Intel 4965agn. It is an Asus 4520 with an AMD Athlon X2 processor and nvidia nForce chipset.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts server on my Intel "fakeraid" (software raid) (2x250 sata).To test my RAID 1 I turned off one HD and start the system.The first screen (Intel software screen) show Status = Degraded, but the system starts normally with just one HD.Then I turned off the system and turned on the HD again, so the first screen (Intel software screen) shows Status = Rebuild. If I enter in the software raid panel the folowing message is showed: "Volumes with "Rebuild" status will be rebuilt within the operating system"The system starts normally... but this message status stays permanently even I restart the system 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 126.96.36.199-0.5) 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 :

I have been using ubuntu for quite a long time, and for the first time, I am now unable to set nvidia drivers to work. I have just install ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on an AMD 64 athlong X2 with a GEForce 6500 nvidia card.
The only reason I need the proprietary drivers is to use two monitors.
I am going crazy, I have tested everything I have found on the web. I have tried all the nvidia drivers version, I have tried envyng, ... but nvidia do not work!!
I am trying Xinerama with nv, but it does not work either!!!
Here is my xorg.conf file in which I have tried to use nv driver to set dual monitor. X fails to load and it says that screen 0 is deleted, that devices are found but there are no matches in the config file. Any clue?
