I'm at the end of my rope. I cannot get the drivers for the Intel GPU in my ThinkPad X40 working to save my life.
I tried the Glasen PPA Intel drivers on Oneirc with 3.0.0-12, 3.0.0-32, 3.2.40, and 3.3.7 kernels.
I tried updating to 12.04 LTS and installing the Intel open source drivers from Intel.
I've tried forcing the use of the intel driver in my xorg.conf.
I've tried wiping the disk and re-installing fresh.
The worst part is that at one point, right after I first installed 11.10 on this machine, I had it all working. System Settings reported an Intel GM graphics adapter, Compiz ran with all effects. So I know the GPU works, and that Compiz can run on this machine. Not sure what I did to break it, and I cannot figure out what combination of drivers, moon phase, and virgin sacrifices will get me back to that point.
