    To help the op along a bit in his quest, there are no closed source Intel drivers, so looking in Additional Drivers, isn't going to help. The drivers you get included in the kernel are all there is.

    Re: KDE is buggy in Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit Beta 2

    Thank you for that bit of information.

    Why does Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit say that my graphics driver is unknown? When I used Ubuntu 12.04.1 64 bit LTS, it said Intel HD 4000.

    Could this be due to the fact that I am using Beta 2 or Release Candidate version?

    Please answer this question if possible. Thank you.

    sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

    Now, Ubuntu says that I have Intel Ivybridge Mobile and standard experience.

    I will test KDE soon.

    Installing mesa-utils seems to have solved my graphics problems in KDE. I am still testing it, but I am not seeing any of the same graphics glitches anymore after I installed mesa-utils and I rebooted my System76 PC.

    Are you fully up to date? I had to switch to xrender rather than opengl in the compositing settings to get rid of graphical corruption.

    I am using KDE 4.9.2 and QT 4.8.3. Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit Release Candidate is fully up to date to this minute. I use OpenGL compositing type and QT graphics system to native instead of render. This seems to have solved most of my graphics corruption issues so far. I am still testing KDE 4.9.2 so I will update this as I go along.

    You're using KDE installed on Ubuntu 12.10? You mjight be better off using Kubuntu 12.10 directly. I've just installed the latest daily myself, and have to say it's solid, solid, solid. Really great release I think. KDE is simply stunning, and Kubuntu does such an amazing job with it imho.

    I have to agree, Kubuntu 12.10's been working extremely well for me. I have an Nvidia card though, a GT218.

    Yeah me too. A 9800GT. All good. I had to go into system settings and set up Plymouth, otherwise I was just getting a low-res text backdrop when booting. Other than than, most impressive.
