My motherboard model is ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 and built in graphics card is Intel GMA950. Unfortunately, Ubuntu 12.04 is not detecting on board graphics card. Display option under settings menu is showing unknown hardware, therefore, default resolution is always 1024*768 and fonts are not clear and sometimes fuzzy. My question is, how can I install driver for Intel GMA 950 manually? So that I can fix screen resolution. Thank you in anticipation.

as far as i know support in linux for this card is very dodgy at best, i have a few netbooks with it and this is why they do not have ubuntu on them.

you can try taking a look at this ppa https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa

Thanks for your reply. I did not get the link. There are lot of packages. Which one should I try?

I too have this card on one of my PC and its a huge PITA. You can try this workaround (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11503588&postcount=4).
