I think it also has something to do with being online. My laptop has Intel graphics but it was initially listed as unknown graphics under System Info. However, after running updates one day the graphics were noticeably more responsive and were also listed correctly under System Info. – user33970 Nov 15 '11 at 12:27
This panel tells me that my graphics is unknown :( – Mika A. Nov 15 '11 at 13:03
OK maybe it will be added after some updated – Mika A. Nov 15 '11 at 13:04
yeah may be also mine wasnt detected in the LIVE version be it from cd or liveusb, after installation it shows up – sarveshlad Nov 15 '11 at 18:06

Go to the intel linux webpage :

Get the Intel(R) Graphics Installer for Linux* 1.0.x and install the package. Once installed, run sudo intel-linux-graphics-installer and follow the steps of the graphical installer
