Ubuntu – How to upgrade intel graphics package

intel graphicsxorg

I have a Intel i7 laptop that does not show any resolution higher than 1280 x 1024. A little bit of research pointed me to a bug and subsequently to a fix. I have 11.10 currently installed. I want to upgrade the driver so that the graphics start working again.

How can I do this ?

If you want to update your graphics drivers, open a terminal console and type

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

After restarting the computer, your system should be running the current graphics drivers. I hope this helps
