    Suggestion for System76 Driver

    The package mesa-utils no longer ships in Ubuntu 12.10 by default. Consequently, the details page under System Settings displays Intel graphics as "unknown." If this package was installed via the "Install Drivers" feature, it would be beneficial to System76 products since the majority of them use Intel products.

    We've actually looked at this before, but since that's the only problem caused by missing mesa-utils, it's been pretty low on the priority list.

    I would imagine this not being too important. Just a suggestion. I thought it might improve user experience--"IvyBridge" is nicer to look at than "Unknown." However, the package can easily be installed if one so desires.
