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

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.

(maybe one of the 2 would have done it)
The display is fine now but according to the solution i used i should now insta

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
