[lubuntu] Google Earth video card problem, lubuntu 15.04 i386


HOME ยป Ubuntu

I have a laptop made in 2006:

Compaq Presario v6000 series
V6254EA

Video card:
Intel corporation mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML express integrated graphics controller (rev 03)

I have installed Google Earth which displayed fine with XP on this machine. When I try to run it on lubuntu 15.04 I get the message:

"Unsupported Graphics Card. Your graphics card does not meet the minimum spec required to run Google Earth,which is a 3D accelerated card with shader support. It is strongly recommended that you try running Google Earth on a different machine or in a different rendering mode or upgrade to a newer graphics card. You may continue,but the application is unlikely to work."

It does not work, it just exits, but I can't see that the graphics card hardware is at fault, given that it works fine on XP?

I tried going into 'additional drivers' (I used this recently to successfully get the broadcom wifi working) and looking to see if I could enable a proprietary driver for the video card or something, but no relevant option presented itself.

I thought about trying to enable something relevant via a video card control app, but I couldn't locate one in lubuntu anywhere.. quite possibly I've not looked in the right place?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

[lubuntu] Lubuntu won't recognize video card when doing hardware manager
Ubuntu
Okay so, I updated my lubuntu system through synaptic (clicked, mark all upgrades) and it updated my system. I try to run "Hardware Drivers" but it won't recognize my ATI Radeon X700 Pro card. Can anyone help me? In the past I tried to go through synaptic and the result was bad, perhaps because I am still new to ubuntu-linux.
Please help!
[lubuntu] How to install Google Earth on Lubuntu?
Ubuntu
How is Google Earth installed on Lubuntu? For some reason (the reason being that i am a noob) i cant seem to figure it out.
Any hints/tips are much apreciated. Thanks!
[lubuntu] Google earth black
Ubuntu
I have downloaded the .deb for Google Earth and installed it successfully.
The Earth's surface is entirely black with the line borders showing up fine. I've tinkered its setting to no avail. In Windows 7 it's fine.
I think it may have to do with video controller or drivers but I have not any other 3D app to check it out.
I am using a netbook, Samsung N145 with Intel Atom N455 and Intel 3150 Graphics. Lubuntu 12.10 i386 recently installed,
Many thanks for any help.

[lubuntu] black screen on installing lubuntu with intel video card 82845G/GL
Ubuntu
I had some problems installing any ubuntu version because the screen always turned black.
I managed to install Lubuntu by inserting "nomodeset xforcevesa"
(maybe one of the 2 would have done it)
The display is fine now but according to the solution i used i should now install the correct video drivers so i don't need the "nomodeset xforcevesa" solution anymore
But i don't know how to do this.
From intel's website I found this : Intel(R) Linux* Graphics Installer version 1.0.1 for Ubuntu* 13.04 (32-bit)
https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads
But when i try to install this i get an error : Fout: Afhankelijkheid is n
Lubuntu 16.04 - Google Earth
Ubuntu
I'm trying to install Google Earth (32-bit) in Lubuntu 16.04 but Synaptic Package Manager requires lsb-core to be installed. When I try to install that, this is what I get:

$ sudo apt-get install lsb-core
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package lsb-core is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'lsb-core' has no installation candidate

I found a file 'lsb-core_3.2-14ubuntu2_i386.deb' but that requires other dependencies and will not install.
lsb-base is installed.

Any suggestions beside using Lubuntu 15.10?
