Intel Graphic Controller driver

Postby nomko on Mon Dec 03, 2012 6:20 am

Hi everyone,

On my "old" desktop system i want to replace Lubuntu with Mint 13 + MATE. This is very much possible considering the spec's of the deskop system:

Intel P4 - 3.0 GHz
2.0 GB RAM
Intel 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller
Intel N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller
Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5752 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (ethernet controller)
1x HDD WDC WD800 JD-60LS
1x HDD Samsung HD154UI

But my main question is: is there a Linux driver available for the 82945G/GZ Graphic Controller? The only location i can find is here: ... ss+chipset. But is there an PPA available? Anyone here with the same Intel Grpahic Controller who can provide me with some solutions? Many thanks in advance!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

the current driver not enough :?:
I think you didn't need installing any driver for intel 945G
Intel driver usually use Mesa DRI for GLX Renderer.

But if you are curious you can see :

Bleeding edge PPA (not recommended) :
