    SIS M760 graphics Driver

    I recently re-installed ubuntu because I became really really sick of windows.
    I have an old laptop (Siemens Amilo A1640) and it has a SiS M760 graphics card. With just OS instalation I have a good resolution and it's perfect screen quality, the problem is that I can't use desktop effects and I have some bugs in visualisation of some pop up screens like volume and stuff like that. How can I install the drivers?

    What drivers do you have to install?

    SiS doesn't support 3d Linux drivers, if u can Google SiS 3d drivers u will get thousands of post crying about SiS lack of Linux support

    Indeed, but I thought the OP had a driver (or perhaps many drivers), just didn't know how to install it.

    Hi, I've the same computer. I tried to run Live on CD Lubuntu 12.10 and Xubuntu 12.10, but none of them works. Which version did you install? Does it work fine? Thanks.

    "None of them works." Perhaps you could expand on this? "I did A and B and C, and expected X. However, Y happened instead."
