    Intel Graphics Bug

    13.10 is reporting that my Toshiba Satellite C660-15R has got a VESA: intel Cantiga Graphics Card instead of a Mobile intel 4 Graphics Card and my resolution is locked at 1024x768 4:3 instead of 1366x768 16:9.

    Is there an easy way to fix it without having to do a re-install?

    Are you sure that there is a difference between the two?

    Before you call this a bug make sure that Details is not reading an ID from the graphic card that has only been changed on paper by Intel

    It used to show up as Mobile intel 4 Express Graphics and let me set the resolution to 1366x768 16:9 Widescreen I'm now forced to only use 1024x768 4:3 which has stretched everything to Widescreen which looks horrendous on a 1366x768 16:9 Widescreen display & my graphics card isn't listed on the link you provided.

    He won't find any optional drivers for intel because the proprietary and open source intel drivers are identical...that is why ubuntu doesn't offer any options (i have intel also so that is why i was aware of that)...
