    VLC is tearing horribly and I want to enable Vsync. So I try to install this software/driver package. All went well untill I tried to run "intel graphics installer for linux". It gives an error message: "You don’t seem to have an Intel i915 chipset so no updates are needed". All I need is a driver which will allow me to enable vsync. What should I do? 

    I have an acer c7 chromebook running lubuntu 14.04. 


    thanks :)

    What chipset do you have? lspci -vnn should tell you.

    Running into the exact same issue here, acer c710 series, processor is a celeron 1007u.  The built in graphics processor should be an HD 2500 series, but for some reason, it gives me the same error.  I've checked lspci and my chipset is an i915 so really not sure what's up with that.

    Ok, two things:

    • Can we get a look at the lspci output? It might provide a clue
    • Does your laptop use the i915 driver by default? One of the checks the installer does is to see if you are already using the i915 driver, and it stops if you're not (as its main job is to provide an updated i915 driver).
