I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Beta on an Acer Aspire One ZG5 net book with a Mobile Intel 945 Express Chip-set Family card.
I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 last year two days before the release of 11.10. Right after I installed the KDE Plasma Desktop, my graphics fell off a cliff.
Unity started putting me on 2D mode, Gnome on classic, and on KDE I had to use X render. Months after searching for graphics problems I found out that when I went to "Details" in System Settings, the list for graphics showed NONE! I tried searching for Intel drivers, but that's like searching for Gold on a sidewalk.
Even when I do find some sort of driver, I can't find a way to use it. The Additional drivers list would not help either.
I have three other operating systems:
- Windows 7
- Linux Mint
- Pinguy OS
Those ones don't have any problems with my card. I upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 LTS beta in hope of Canonical including my card in their driver list, and again it didn't work.
I'd appreciate anyone's word on this.
