    The Intel graphics drivers are built in to Ubuntu, you're already using them.

    The new intel graphics driver package is not yet available for your version of Ubuntu.

    As I said in my earlier post, you're already using the latest Intel driver.

    The version in the standard 13.04 repositories is 2.21.6, which is actually a newer version than the 2.21.3 that is available from the Intel site.

    If you're asking when is Intel going to write NEW drivers for that chipset, the answer most likely is -- never.

    That is a very old chipset and the drivers that are out there now are all there are going to be.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
