Let me start off by saying I'm completely new to Linux. I'm learning quickly, but still have a long way to go. I've done a fair bit of searching, but can't seem to find the answer to my question. I have a Toshiba Satellite A105 with an Intel 950 graphics adapter. I've installed Mint (which is really cool, btw) with basically no problems. I don't *think* that I've got the right video driver (are they called "drivers" in linux?) installed.
The reason I say this is because in the "hardware drivers" section there are no proprietary drivers listed. It seems like my video works fine (fancy desktop switching effects and all), but the highest resolution I can select is 1024x800. It seems to me if I had the right drivers I should be able to select a higher resolution - no?
So I suppose I have two questions:
1) How do I tell if I've got the right driver installed
2) If I don't have the right driver, how should I go about installing the correct one.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
