    Intel Drivers

    Drivers should be installed b=during installation. Check in restricted hardware if available. Click & Install. You wont be able to install rpm in Ubuntu/Debian/Mint. Try with .deb file

    There is no need to manually install Graphics Driver for Intel Card. Ubuntu installer detects and install it itself. Are you facing any Graphics problem?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    ^No I am not facing any graphics problems, just thought that drivers may not be updated. I have a laptop with Nvidia optimus (two graphics cards). i accidentally installed the nvidia drivers,and want to roll back them, is this possible. also is there anything like "device manager" in linux ??

    Most of Linux distros don't install Proprietary drivers (Nvidia or ATI) during installations and one has to install those manually. If you have installed Nvidia driver and graphics is working fine, there is no need to roll back it.

    is there anything like "device manager" in linux ?
    Linux detects most of the hardware and install drivers automatically. For a few Graphics/Wireless cards, there is an option "Restricted Drivers" in Menu. Check if it recommends any driver installation.
