Intel Linux Graphics Drivers Installer for Linux

Intel Linux Graphics Drivers Installer. Most versions of the Linux* operating system include Intel® graphics drivers.  Intel recommends checking with your Linux distribution vendor or computer manufacturer for precompiled driver packages. .

 

Intel Graphics Installer for Linux is a tool developed by Intel and enables users to easily update to the latest versions of drivers for hardware Intel. The installer automatically adds the repository that is used to update packages provided by Intel means that, in addition installer you can also use the update Manager in Ubuntu, apt-get and other utilities to update the packages.

 

 

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

1. Download from official website installation package for the correct version for your system

2. Run the program on Linux Mint

Intel Linux Graphics Drivers Installer, when run, makes the test of name distribution, and if it's not Ubuntu, it refuses to work. Therefore we will make so that the program "thought" that running in Ubuntu.

In my example I run on Linux Mint 18 (this corresponds to Ubuntu 16.04)

Open in a text editor the file /etc/lsb-release

sudo xed /etc/lsb-release

Do the contents to the next view

#DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint
#DISTRIB_RELEASE=18
#DISTRIB_CODENAME=sarah
#DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 18 Sarah"
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=16.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 16.04 LTS"

Now nothing prevents you, run installer and update intel driver.

3. Reboot the system
