Steam for Linux

Intel Graphics and terrible lag
I am having terrible lag with games like TF2 on a pretty good laptop running extremely low settings. Here are my specs:

OS: Linux Mint 12 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i3-2310M
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000 (Driver unknown)

I have heard a lot of people complain that their drivers are what mess it up. I'm not entirely sure what drivers I have (Linux and drivers are very strange), so if anyone could help me figure out how to get them to work well with Valve games, that would be amazing.

Are you running Ubuntu 13.04? If you're not, try that. Drivers get updated with every release of Ubuntu, because most are in the kernel. If I remember correctly there is an issue with that graphics chip in the Ubuntu 13.10 release, but I might be wrong on that one.

If you don't know your driver, try:

lspci | grep VGA

You might also fare better by using a lighter alternative, such as Lubuntu if speed is your priority.
