    Unknown Graphic Card, Envelope Icon, Weird lens at dash home

    I'm soo soo noob at this system.

    So when you're answering, please keep it simple as you guys can.

    I loved ubuntu, I came to ubuntu from windows 7 and I'm not familier with using terminal and codes.

    So, here is my problem.

    After installing ubuntu, my graphic card is unknown as in the picture. I'm using casper laptop. How can I fix it?


    My second question is, after visiting few social sites like facebook twitter. It asked me to download or not add-ons etc. I figured out that they were unity-webapps.

    So, after installing few of them, this weird envelope icon appeard at my panel, and I dunno how to use unity web apps or what are they for? also a weird lens appeard at my dash home too.

    Here are the pictures...

    Thx for the helps.

    To get your video driver to be listed(this is a common problem), install mesa-utils.

    I thought an envelope was always on the panel.

    I don't know about extra lenses in the dash. I ignore any websites offer to do anything on my systems.

    In terms of the first problem, try running the 'Additional Drivers' program. You might need to install proprietary drivers.
