Ubuntu 13.04

Models render funny in games and the graphics are non existent. This leaves me to believe the graphics card is not communicating with my OS, which means non existent driver. I have very little knowledge on terminal commands other than like sudo apt-get and so on.

My question is: how do I install graphics card drivers on Ubuntu 13.04?


Output of lspci | grep VGA:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

Output of lsb_release -a:

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 13.04
Release:    13.04
Codename:   raring

Output of uname -a:

Linux Acolyte 3.8.0-30-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 22 20:52:24 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

First it important to know what graphics driver you are using.. So I suggest you to give some more details about your system, and also the result of these commands: lspci | grep VGA, lsb_release -a and uname -a. Edit your question and paste the results of these commands. –  Saur.K Sep 10 '13 at 19:41
