    Linux driver for Acer Aspire 3500 graphics card


    When I start Google Earth in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) I get a message saying you are currently running in OpenGL mode with software emulation, Google Earth will run but very slowly unless I upgrade my graphics card driver. Where can I get Linux drivers for my laptop.
    Cheers.

    I'm pretty sure that lappy uses an Intel chipset for graphics. If so, check this site for some info regarding Linux drivers:

    Graphics - Availability of Intel® Graphics drivers for Linux*

    Maybe someone else will reply with more info for you.
