    I've used ubuntu for 5 years now, and only recently I've installed and bought some STEAM games. And realized my toshiba laptop with an Mobile Intel HM57 is just not giving the proper performance, since simple games like hotline miami or FTL with 8-bit graphics are getting 30 FPS.

    I'm pretty sure it's the graphics driver since I've tried the same games in a laptop with an 1017U intel processor and work just fine. Could it be that since it's an old processor the chosen driver is not the proper one?.

    I would like some advice if there's a way to get the proper one or at least know if I'll ever be able to use proper graphics for my pc in linux. I've already tried installing the Intel linux graphics installer from this very same project on an Xubuntu 14.10 installation which is the same distribution I have on the other laptop. Thanks in advancefor any attention given to this thread
