    How to update Intel Graphics driver

    I *need* to update my driver, even though everything seems to work just fine. I got Diablo 3 for my birthday (yay!) and managed to install it using PlayOnLinux. BUT the game won't run, tells me my graphics driver is out of date.
    According to the little plastic sticker on my laptop I've an Intel Core i5-480M processor and the grapics card is just presented as Intel Hd Graphics. I don't know if that helps any. I run 11.10.

    I kept the pre-installed windows, just repartitioned it when I installed ubuntu, and on my windows boot I was able to install and run the game after updating the driver. I would prefer to run it in ubuntu, though.

    Okay, let's get started! You should be able to simply go to System Settings, then Additional Drivers. Should be a proprietary driver in there that you can use.

    "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system."
    There's nothing there.

    Okay, let's see what graphics card you have with:
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep VGA
    Post the output here.

    Now I believe you can get the driver from Intel's website. Run the following:

    Code:
    lspci -v | perl -ne '/VGA/../^$/ and /VGA|Kern/ and print'
    Then:
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    Post the entire output within [CODE] tags by pressing the "#" button in the message box.

    Re: How to update Intel Graphics driver

    I was wondering how to do those handsome output frames...

    lspci -v | perl -ne '/VGA/../^$/ and /VGA|Kern/ and print'
    Code:
    Kernel driver in use: i915
    Kernel modules: i915
    lsb_release -a
    Code:
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
    Description:	Ubuntu 11.10
    Release:	11.10
    Codename:	oneiric

    Hmm...having a hard time tracking down the drivers you need from Intel. Could you go into System Settings, Details and check what it says for the Graphics section?

    Re: How to update Intel Graphics driver

    I went to System Settings, System Info, Graphics; is that what you wanted?
    Anyway, It says: Driver: Intel® Ironlake Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 Experience: Standard

    ETA: I'm really grateful for the time and effort

    Yupp, you got it! Odd, I'm not finding anything about Intel Ironlake Mobile from the Intel website.
