What graphics drivers are you using?

July 4th, 2012, 06:10 PM
I dont think i have any graphics. I am using close to stalk hp.
Minecraft does work on windows 7

Are you able to enable restricted drivers?

How would I enable restricted drivers. Im new to this

OK click the dash and type "settings" and open "System Settings", then click "Restricted Drivers".

All computers have graphics with the exception of servers. To find out what type of graphics chip you have:

lspci | grep VGA

when i look at additional drivers it says no proprietary drivers are in use on this system. how do i add them?
And it says i have an integrated hp graphics card

That could be the source of your problem. Because the card is integrated, there won't be any proprietary drivers available. How much memory does your card have?

Thats the info on it.

Apparently it works, but without 3D acceleration... maybe this is what is affecting you?

So what can i do to get minecraft running?

go into the software center and type "i915" and make sure the driver is installed, it should be by default but you never know. I know on mine it is but there is another on for debugging symbols which I am pretty sure does not fix your problem.

I had that problem using Sun Java. Moving to OpenJDK fixed it. Try it out! (delete sun java first)

This is a bug in Minecraft

You need to download the following zip:

Extract it to ~/.minecraft.
If you're not sure where to place them exactly, all of those files should overwrite already existing files.
