How do I update my graphics card drivers


Apologies if this already appears elsewhere but I couldn’t find anything on this.

Google maps has advised that I may need to update the drivers for my graphics card. It is an Intel series 4 chipset. I can only find updates for Windows os on the Intel website. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m running Mint Maya 13.


Can you open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), and post the output from running this command:

sudo lshw -C display

The graphics drivers for Intel are the ones that come with the X server - just doing a full system update will update them if there are any (don’t trust Google on that, they’re just guessing!). I suspect that they aren’t developing the drivers anymore, as that chipset is years old (although can’t confirm that until you post the results of the command Mark gave).

I don’t suppose you could post a screenshot of what Google is giving you? I haven’t seen that before myself
