Can you please paste the output of the following command? lspci – Javier Gonzalez May 13 '12 at 16:54
My understanding is that there is no such thing as an Intel graphics adapter. All Intel graphics are integrated into the motherboard or, these days, onto the same die as the CPU. What problems are you having which prompted you to ask for a driver (?) for Intel integrated graphics? What Intel hardware are you using? – irrational John May 14 '12 at 6:40

Ubuntu is supporting any VGA cards,but sometime it doesn't list them in "system setting",
You should try to install mesa-utils.
From the Software Center :

Install via the software center

Or install it from terminal :

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

Or if this can't find in your repository list, go to and then choose your ubuntu version (or select the latest version in the list) according your OS Architecture (64bit/32bit{i836}). and type mesa-utils. Download the file and type on terminal :

sudo dpkg -i location-of-downloaded-file/Package-name.deb

And replace the bold text with the location and name of the downloaded file.

Get the latest drivers for your kernel from intel opensource projects website :

Get the linux installer, install it then run intel-linux-graphics-installer
