Hey Everyone,

 

This is certainly a pain for me as I have a nagging ol lady using Linux.

 

My only problem is that my ol lady likes to play her facebook games on my Laptop. I do have flash installed but it is extremely laggy and slow. Unfortunately I have tried changing the settings on Flash but I am not able to.

 

Does anyone have any tips on this?

Are you using Firefox paired with the flash plugin from restricted-extras deb file? Or are you running the flash included with chromium/canary build/chrome?

Do you have any proprietary graphics drivers installed? Or are you using the open source ones?

I suggest you try chromium, there only seems to be the open source drivers for your chipset. No proprietary made by intel drivers.

You say it runs fine, does they mean everything ele other than flash works properly on the chipset?
