I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Beta on an Acer Aspire One ZG5 net book.
Card: Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chip-set Family card
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 last year, two days before the release of 11.10. After I installed the KDE Plasma Desktop, my graphics fell down the 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 my System Settings, on the list for graphics cards, it showed NONE! I tried searching for Intel drivers that work with my model, but that's like searching for gold on a sidewalk.
Even when I did find some sort of driver, I couldn'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.
EDIT: Sorry, I didn't realize the grammar, spelling, and punctuation were sloppy until now. I corrected the question.
