I installed Ubuntu to try it in my computer and I'm in love with it, but it doesn´t recognize my Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family Integrated, I need help to do this, because I'm new to this OS.

I tried to find drivers using Additional Drivers, and

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel

This tells me I already have the lastest version.

Can somebody help me to install this driver?

have You chcked on the Intel website if there are binary drivers for linux? – Misery Jan 25 '12 at 10:45
can you clarify what you mean by "doesnt recognise"... what isnt recognised? please add the output of /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p to your question. – fossfreedom Jan 25 '12 at 11:36

The Intel driver is already installed by default in Ubuntu; I have the same chipset and, at the moment, I can't run Unity 3D with it. I just can run flawlessly Unity 2D, choosing it at the login screen. If you want hardware acceleration, you could possibily try to add Xord Edgers PPA, but it's risky cause you could mess up your computer and I don't advice it, also because I don't know if with the updated driver you can succeed in using hardware acceleration and runnning Unity 3D.
