Ubuntu 12.04 fails to find Intel HD Graphics 3000 driver

Asked by iatll on 2012-06-10

On my Windows 7 installation an Intel HD Graphics 3000 card/driver shows. However in Ubuntu 12.04, System → Administration → Hardware Drivers shows no proprietary drivers available for the system.

I have tried running the following:

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

Which results in the graphics driver incorrectly identifying itself as Sandy Bridge Mobile.

Running the following results in no change

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot

Does anybody have any information on this behavior?

Went through those links, didn't help. Solution is probably that there is no other graphics driver available other than Intel Sandybridge Mobile
