How can I install Intel HD3000 graphics drivers?

Postby Yazeed92 on Mon Mar 11, 2013 7:28 pm

Hello
I have tried to install Intel HD3000 graphics drivers but could not get that to work, the reason I am doing it is because the fonts are blurry and fuzzy which makes my eyes hurt.
I have downloaded the .deb file from here: https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads

anyway I could not install them, it says there are some broken dependencies. I have tried apt-get install -f which it (the driver Installer) says in the error it gives me but that did not help.

Thanks
Y-


PS: I am using a 24 display through connected through VGA cable.

do not use that app in your system (because you are using 64bit) see here (in the comments) the issues http://www.webupd8.org/2013/03/intel-releases-linux-graphics-drivers.html

anyway, you have the correct drivers installed for your card
Code: Select all
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Desktop GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 9.0 Direct Rendering: Yes
do you have any issue that you can related to the graphics card?

Oops, I was hoping there is something wrong so by fixing I'd get rid of the fuzzy fonts.
as far as if I am having any issues yes, systems fonts are fuzzy/blurry not only in browsers but everywhere. what can I do?

yes, i missed this part, can you check with other monitor/connection? or the monitor settings? it's not the drivers, they are working properly.
