I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and I believe I need to update my graphics drivers (my external monitor is being kind of glitchy and its resolution is too low). My graphics card is the Intel Ironlake Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2.
I believe I've found the correct drivers at https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads?keys=ironlake&download_type=All&download_version=All however, I'm not sure if I need 2013Q1 or 2013Q2. Also, and probably more importantly, I don't actually know how I would go about installing these drivers. Do I download them as an executable file that knows where to install everything, or do I need to navigate to the correct folders and drop the files in there?
I tried looking around for some explanation on this, but I couldn't find anything. If someone could give me a link to a page that explains this process for newer linux users, it would be greatly appreciated.
Also, if anyone could give me some insight into which drivers I actually need, that would also be awesome.
Regarding the stack 2013Q1 x 2013Q2 question. The answer is use always the latest newest one.
However, unfortunatelly we have no easy way for getting it upgraded for non-technical users on Ubuntu 12.04.
We do have a easy Installer for non-technical users, but currently only targetting 2013Q2 for Fedora 19 and Ubuntu 13.04: https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/2013/intelr-linux-graphics-installer-version-1.0.2
The easy installer for 12.04 was deprecated after we started to cause conflicts with official packages from Canonical.
