do you ever managed to make this driver work in the ubuntu-based editions?
as far as i can see the comp you are using has Atom N2600/CedarTrail and unfortunately (for now with the kernel available in lmde) it doesn't work
one workaround is (probably) using liquorix

you will get newer and debian compatible kernels

or you can check this topic (more work involved) http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=78157

on mint cinnamon\mate\kde versions the additional drivers app did say it installed and was using 2 proprietary drivers, and o got a 1024x600 resolution. i'll have a look on those topics.
