    Info on Addtional Drivers vs. System Settings -> Details

    Has anyone else noticed that the Graphics details in System Settings -> Details is not available, while its easily available from the Additional Drivers window?



    As far as I know, the System Settings -> Details application is controlled by Gnome. I haven't checked this screen with open source drivers enabled, but I assume it works for them. It'd be nice to see Ubuntu patch this so that the proprietary drivers are "recognized" as well since its clearly possible as seen in Additional Drivers.

    Try installing mesa-utils. It works for me with my Intel SandyBrigde.

    Unfortunately not, at least not with my Radeon HD6450 card using the open source driver. I get the same details window as in your screenshot.

    To post a screenshot, you need to use the advanced editor, then scroll down to Manage Attachments, or use one of the many picture hosting web sites, and use the link that they provide.
