Yes, by all means download the latest Linux Graphics Installer from Intel, and see what it recommends: 01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads

Q: What is your physical host's video hardware? Did you install a corresponding Linux drver? The screen resolution of your Unity guest? What OS is your physical host running?

comment What is causing PuTTy to not connect to Raspberry Pi?
To summarize: 1) the reason you're getting "connection refused" is because you're pointing to the wrong IP. You need to "Putty" in to your Raspberry Pi: you can get the IP from "ifconfig" (at an RP command prompt), or from the boot screen. You might also need to run "raspi-config" (from an RP command prompt) to get sshd working. 2) Even though you can run RP "headless" after you've configured it ... you're probably going to need to connect a monitor and keyboard in order to configure it.

Strong suggestion: I'd really urge you to attach a monitor and keyboard, at least for initial setup.

1) It sounds like you want to talk to your boss or your professor, 2) it sounds like maybe root privileges should be revoked for all uses, and 3) it sounds like you want to take frequent backups ;)

comment submitting jobs to a Linux workstation
Unfortunately, "screen" probably won't help the OP if he wants to kill his terminal session. I believe "nohup" is the command he's looking for. IMHO...

comment submitting jobs to a Linux workstation
Absolutely correct :). You know about the "&" part (to run the program in the background). "nohup" keeps your program from getting killed when you log off your terminal session. Finally, you might also wish to redirect output to a file you can read later: nohup mpirun -np 20 ./a 200 1000000 2>&1 mylog.txt &

comment How can I fix a computer that is infested with malware and is extremely unresponsive?
@nerdwaller - a year or so ago I had a client with a similar problem (some stupid "Optimize your PC" malware got in and brought the PC to it's knees). The PC had a fully up-to-date version of Norton A/V. Norton did nothing to protect the PC, and nothing to fix it. MalwareBytes, however, worked like a charm. Malwarebytes is definitely a good recommendation!

comment How to disable jusched.exe on Windows 7 64-bit?
\Program files*\java\..\bin\javacpl works if you only have one version of the JRE, and can find it easily. Otherwise, run msconfig and uncheck "Java Updates" from the [Startup] tab.

comment bash screen title usage (screen -t “something”)
One other suggestion: ls -laR /var/run/screen/ PS: I thought "screen -ls" did list the titles. Sorry. I agree with you about "illogical" ;). Please let us know if the "ls /var/run/screen" works for you.
