I am trying to get Blender to work on my laptop (Ubuntu 9.04 ) and it is not working too well. The program runs but when I move objects it leaves tracers of the object that dont go away. When I play poker online the graphics are not as good as when windows was on this same laptop. How do I figure out what kind of hardware I have and where do I get better drivers ? Sorry I am a noob with linux and am having trouble getting a starting point. Just clicking around randomly at the present moment. Im not trying to achieve anything great graphics wise but would like to be able to play around with Blender and get it back to the same as it was with windows.

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron E1505

Type "lspci" in the terminal and it'll show all your hardware.

Ubuntu usually automatically recognizes the computer's hardware but it won't install or activate proprietary drivers by default.

Go to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers and click to activate third party drivers for your graphic's card.

You may have to restart, but that should do the trick.
