    Intel GMA X3100 not detected

    Hi,
    Today i installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my old Acer laptop that has an Intel GMA X3100 card.
    However Ubuntu says "Driver Unknown" in the Graphics section of System Information.
    I cannot get Wobbly Windows and other features to work because of this.

    How (and where from) do I install the Intel GMA driver?

    This comes up so often, I wish Canonical would simply REMOVE System Info from the distro ...

    Basically, it's unreliable. I'm using an onboard AMD HD graphics chip, and it says the same for me ...

    If you're seeing an actual desktop, not stuck in a textual command line interface, then you already HAVE the Linux Intel video drivers installed.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
