I have Acer Aspire One D270 with intel GMA 3600. When i tried to install video drivers with Intel(R) Linux* Graphics Installer version 1.0.1 for Ubuntu* 13.04 (32-bit) it fails.
You don't seem to have an intel graphics card, so no updates needed.What do I need to do now?
Tell me in detail, cause i am so noob with Linux =[
Reproduced from the FAQ page:
Due to the complex package dependencies of the binary graphics drivers for the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 Series used in the Intel® Atom™ Processor N2600 Series and Intel® Atom™ Processor N2800 Series, supported drivers are only available through your device manufacturer or through Linux distributions providing support for the Intel® GMA 3600. An unsupported version of the binary driver is also available at
This software is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied warranty, and is bound by the license terms included with the download package.
I would advise not using Meego (discontinued) or the Intel software provided in 2012 (closed source and unsupported). Find a distro like Xubuntu that can autoselect kernel module gma500_gfx and Xorg video driver modesetting for you. This will allow you to at least get full use of the monitor resolution. Unfortunately, Cedar Trail (PowerVR + Intel) is a dead end as far as Linux is concerned.
I'm in the same shape as you. I might re-install Windoze 7 and ebay this rig (Intel D2550MUD2 motherboard based). I'll be very suspicious of Intel graphics and Atom CPUs in the future.
