Why do you think you need to install the driver? –  Mitch Aug 23 '13 at 18:51
    
@Mitch it's a common Windows migration paradigm - users always assume that you have to install drivers on Linux because they're so used to doing it on Windows, I originally self-compiled apps when I started out in Linux back in '07 because the concept of a package management system was alien to me. –  Craig Watson Aug 23 '13 at 18:54
    
@CraigWatson That's why I wanted to know, if there was anything wrong with the installation:) –  Mitch Aug 23 '13 at 18:56

You won't have to install drivers for most devices because unlike Windows, Ubuntu ships with a comprehensive set of drivers built right into the operating system.

Is there anything actually wrong with your PC? Is the display resolution incorrect, do you have bad colour depth, can you not enable 3D effects?

If the answer to all of the above questions is no, you don't have to worry about installing drivers.

To download the graphics driver for your system, download the Intel Linux Graphics Installer version 1.0.2. Make sure that you choose the right file, either the 32bit or 64bit Ubuntu driver.
