If you followed catkin's instructions, look in /tmp (not in your home directory!)

If you followed my instructions, it will be directly in your home directory (or in /root (not in your home dir), if you ran the command as root).

Mtk358, Things are a little edgy here today. I am just getting back to using both win xp and ubuntu 9.xxx. Plus a few familyt problems that have been brewing to long. I will get back to you ASAP, but meanwhile it is probably best to let things rest for a day or two.
I did follow catkins directions to get the results and as soon as I get straightened around I will get back to you. Right now I am in windblows trying to get a win xp Blood pressure analyser program to work and it does.

OK! I just rechecked Catkins instructions and found out using LQ869142 or LQ889142 or LQ809142 with a txt suffix got the same results. They all came back as a directory. HUH! How can that be? That should be impossible. I think that /tmp is a directory and folowing that would be the name of the file. So the LQxxxxxx.txt can't be a directory. But it comes back that way no matter what I put there for the file mame. Methinks I need a drink.

Forget about my and catkin's previous posts and run this:

Code:
dpkg -l '*xf86-video*' > /tmp/drivers.txt

Does this make any sense at all? I got it by opening the file in gedit which seemed to easy.

Code:
lspci | grep VGA
?

I tried this command both plain and as sudo and got the same results. Invalid operation xf86-video-intel-legacy. Which is what we came up with the last time I tried to get this driver. I remember it now. I just can not get it on this machine.

Code:
apt-cache search intel
I don't really know if these commands are right, as I don't use a Debian-based distro.

Also note the "&" before the ">".
