Intel Graphics Driver Problem


I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Beta on an Acer Aspire One ZG5 net book with a

Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chip-set Family card

I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 last year two days before the release of 11.10. Right after I installed the KDE Plasma Desktop, my graphics fell off a cliff.

My unity started putting me on 2D mode, Gnome on classic, and on KDE I had to use X render. Months after searching for graphics problems I found out when I checked "Details" in System Settings and on the list for graphics it showed NONE! I tried searching for Intel drivers, but that's like searching for Gold on a sidewalk.

Even When I do find some sort of driver, I can't find a way to use it. The Additional drivers list would not help either.

I have three other operating systems

-Windows 7

-Linux mint

-Pinguy OS

Those ones don't have any problems with my card

I upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 LTS beta in hope of Canonical including my card in their driver list, and again it didn't work.

I'd appreciate anyone's word on this.

Canonical put your video chip on a blacklist, so that you can not use the 3D desktop features, because of some incompatibilities. The old song: Instead of fixing problems they rather come up with shiny new things. One reason why I never recommend to use Ubuntu.

Hi, I think I've got the same problem but I'm not using linux mint unfortunately. Could you please tell me which precisely files were missing?

Please excuse my absent-mindedness in the previous posts. I guess I was over-excited.
