    [SOLVED] How can I Install/Activate Intel video driver?

    I'm running a Vostro 3460 with Ubuntu 11.10. I made a new fresh install and all the hardware works, except video that falls in VESA instead of Intel.
    This notebook have a Nvidia Optimus technology with two video boards: one Intel® HD Graphics and the other is GeForce GT630M.
    I managed to install Bumblebee with success, and through it I can get reasonable FPS, but the main video is running VESA instead of Intel.
    I made some research but have no idea how to activate the Intel video driver.

    Solved. Removing an unnecessary 'nomodeset' option in /boot/grub/grub.cfg solved the problem.
    The option was there because during first install it was necessary to get the video working.
