  • You need to use saucy. raring PPA is missing the updated xserver, it has a lot of other packages due to libwayland transition and raring will end support on january anyway, so I'll also drop it soon.

      @oibaf: Thank you for the quick reply. Unfortunately I can not upgrade higher than 13.04 for now, as i have to use ROS which does not provide packages for 13.10 yet.

        let's say that chips have this hardware. How to enable it?

          IIRC, if you have vdpau driver support, edit /etc/adobe/mms.cfg and add

          OverrideGPUValidation=1
          EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1

            I have an Lenovo T420 (Sandy Bridge HD 3000) Notebook.
            If i get the news on Phoronix correctly my notebook should show Opengl 3.3 or at least Opengl 3.2 Profile.
            But i only get one Opengl 3.1 Profile and below that an Opengl 3.0 Profile Output.

            Im just using your ppa, no others. Where is the error (or is that as desired?)

              This is probably because you are using the raring packages. I deleted them, now the only supported version is 13.10 saucy. Better to have only one supported version than supporting older buggy packages which I don't have time to test and maintain.

                  Which xorg server are you running?
                  Code:
                  dpkg -l | grep xserver-xorg-core
