How to enable graphic accelaration in ubuntu

I am new to linux. I installed ubuntu today but the animations are very choppy. I have a 4500u vivobook. How do I install the graphic drivers and are there any other drivers I should be installing for better UX.

Ubuntu installs the drivers for Intel iGPUs by default, there isn't any driver for you to install.

My bad. Still, Ubuntu installs the drivers by default.

I have not enabled anything. The thing feels really slow. Loss of frames during scrolling

Why does scrolling feel choppy and overall its not the same experience I have on my much older intel machine. Like in browser scrolling legit sucks.

what Ubuntu version did you install? 20.04? if so install 20.10, it's using the newer kernel you need by default so that should resolve your issue.

For CPU's with Integrated Graphics its generally a better idea to update both the Kernel and Mesa at the same time, as Mesa is part of the Graphics Stack for both Intel and AMD.

I would try upgrading to Ubuntu 20.10 as @Ashley xD suggested or trying Manjaro or Fedora 33 (which should come out of beta today) since they should have a recent kernel and mesa build.
