    Installing Intel Graphics driver for Ubuntu Lucid

    How do I install Intel Graphics driver for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid):


    $ sudo lshw -C video
    *-display UNCLAIMED
    description: VGA compatible controller
    product: Intel Corporation
    vendor: Intel Corporation
    physical id: 2
    bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0

    Model


    $ lspci | grep VGA

    Kernel


    $ uname -r

    I know my Ubuntu version is very old, but there are some reasons that I cannot upgrade, so is there still a solution for this?

    My main goal is to increase the resolution of my laptop to 1280x800 which is the resolution I get when running Windows OS on it.

    May we know the reasons due to which you can't upgrade? Maybe solving those problems could be easier than working on an outdated system.

    By the way, most Intel cards are supported by i915 driver, so please post back the outputs of :
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep VGA
    modinfo i915
    Varun
