    Intel Graphics Card Issue

    Just loaded Ubuntu 15.04 onto a laptop with intel 852GM/855GM graphics card. For some reason, the proper driver is not being loaded (in my best judgement). The problem is precisely similar to the issue in this thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...+82852%2F855GM

    except of course for the distro version. I attempted the fix suggested, but ran into an error when I tried to add to the repositories. Question is, is this still appropriate? If so, can somebody please tweak the commands to make it work for me?

    Most likely not.
    Card is old, perhaps too old to run Ubuntu -proper.

    What driver is actually loaded.

    You will probably need to use a different DE, for example Xubuntu which uses XFCE or Lubuntu (LXDE), both of which are a lot lighter than unity in Ubuntu, which requires a good 3D graphic card to work at properly.
