I'm new to enlightenment. How do I enable the intel drivers?

Is your graphics card not working by default? It should work with the FOSS drivers built into the kernel.

ron@desktop:~/Downloads$ ./compiz-check_0-4-6

Gathering information about your system...

Distribution: Ubuntu 10.04
Desktop environment: Unknown
Graphics chip: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)
Driver in use: vesa
Rendering method: AIGLX

Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system... [SKIP]

Checking for hardware/setup problems... [SKIP]

At least one check had to be skipped:
Error: vesa driver in use

Would you like to know more? (Y/n) y

The vesa driver is not capable of running Compiz, you need to install
the proper driver for your graphics card.

Please define "does not work". If GLXGears works then your 3D drivers are working fine and it odds are is either an issue with the game or your card is just not powerful enough.

Games will start but are real slowwww. It's not the best card but it is capable of playing 3d games under other distros. Knoppix, puppy and Ubuntu (before 9.10) picks up automatically on it. My question is how do I find out the driver I'm using and is there a way to change it in enlightenment.

try the command:
sudo lshw


And locate your graphics card.

Please try installing the early build of the 2.6.38 kernel via synaptic. It has newer FOSS drivers that should provide better 3D support.

Also, just to check - you haven't loaded any extra E modules have you? I've noticed E's built in compositing manager slows things up some currently (Working on getting that working better)

Ron - if the games are running, the driver is installed and working (it's in the kernel). Can you try the newer kernel per the suggestion in my last post please?

You may check whether the intel driver is working or not by checking the Xorg.0.log

$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep intel


Or manually add these lines to xorg.conf file:

Quote

Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel 845G"
Driver "intel"
#Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
EndSection


I added xorg-edgers Personal Package Archive to repository. Just open a console and type these commands to add this PPA your system:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa 
$ sudo apt-get update

In fact I dunno what exactly a PPA is. But I was having problems to change screen resolution permanently. I added something like this to my xorg.conf file:

Quote

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
Option "PreferredMode" "800x600"
Option "TargetRefresh" "85"
Option "Position" "0 0"
EndSection


But it didn't work I suppose. So I decided to try the latest drivers. And find this PPA from this page:

http://intellinuxgra...rg/install.html

I have a very old Intel 815 chipset graphics card in this computer. After installing the latest driver I think there is a minor performance increase.

Hımm. I missed the link and didn't read your post when I replied this.

Yes, you may be right. I didn't ever think about security issues when using software from Personal Package Archives. I suppose it is a bit different than building software from scratch.
