View Full Version : 12.04 Ubuntu no drivers for SiS Mirage 3 Graphic

August 1st, 2013, 07:02 AM

I have a FS Esprimo Mobile 5515 with SiS Mirage 3+ Graphic graphics and lack of drivers.

ted@ted-ESPRIMO-Mobile-V5515:/$ xrandr -q
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 61.0*
800x600 61.0
640x480 60.0

Where can I find drivers for the graphics and how to install them?
I am new to Ubuntu. Could you please help step by step?

check that xserver-xorg-video-sis package is well installed.
if that driver does not support your card/chipset, then you need to compile it

Perhaps you could explain what the problem is. If you can run programs, perhaps you do not need a specific driver for the video adapter. Not having a driver is not, by itself, a problem.

OK, check your advice and write as I went.
