It would appear the Intel GMA500 chip ( found in a number of laptop / notebooks ) is not well supported.
I have scraped my way through "how to" after "how to" in unbuntu , debian ,and a number of forums but till now and which ever procedure I try fails somewhere down the line.
Now I do know that I need to use the Intel EMGD but in there infamous wisdom Intel have not provided a nice .deb file.
Don't worry if you don't see the GMA500 in there it is under a other name.
I have an Asus EEEPC 1202HA and would love to run Cinnamon on it since mate works great.
So has anyone got an GMA500 to work with cinnamon or the EMGD in LMDE and HOW ???? We would all love to know
