I am new to Ubuntu and Linux. I have a HP Envy 17'' laptop and it comes with an i7-4710HQ processor with integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4600. I have Ubuntu 15.04 installed and I also installed the recently released Intel graphic drivers for the system.
The problem is that the graphics quality is very poor (with the original Ubuntu 15.04 drivers and also after the update). The screen continuously flickers with netflix videos and especially even very light games, like supertux2. I dual boot with windows 7 and I have no problems when in windows.
Before this Ubuntu installation I had Linux Mint 17.2 and I am pretty sure that the graphics performance was better, even though Mint 17 is based on Ubuntu 14.04... Not 100% sure, though.
Any ideas to improve this? If you need more data, please let me know how to get it. Again, I am new to Linux.
Thanks in advance,
