    Have the Intel graphics drivers been fixed?

    I can't use KK because the intel graphics drivers won't work on my HP netbook. Have they upgraded these drivers for LL yet?

    I think it depends on what chipset you computer is running. Karmic works well for me, on my atom powered media center pc. The only thing I have a problem with is the default flash installed from the repositories, It brings the system to a stand still when playing full screen HD flash videos. My system has the 945 graphics chipset.

    That's a pretty vague question. What's your integrated graphics card model? What's the specific problem that prevented the drivers from working?

    Here's my Intel card, as an example:
    lspci|grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

    The problem I'm having is with the games. I get "trails" or "ghosting" when I move a card. Maybe other areas too, I first noticed it there.

    Other than that, its ok.

    Look at you home folder files ".xsession-errors", for any indication or problems.

    Intel graphics should work really well with GMA950. My nettop works fine.

    Have you tried another liveusb of it? Install doesn't work or liveusb?

    Either way to answer your question wait until late Thursday and alpha 3 will be out, and you can run the livecd/usb to see if you have same problem.

    Ask question in this thread Thursday and Friday and people will have more responses.

    That's not a graphics driver problem - it's a performance issue with the latest client-side window decoration code in GTK. There's about two or three threads discussing this already, with links to the bug report.
