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

Good Luck!!!

I'm getting that same error (Dependency is not satisfiable: libpackagekit-glib2-18 (>=0.9.4) ), I don't know if the person you were replying to had luck with your command but I did not :( I ran the command, and for good measure I did apt-get update&upgrade, then full shut-down and reboot, tried launching the intel updater tool and am getting the same error as before.. tried to apt-get it but it's not available, no idea how to get it (was able to deduce that my computer has the -16 version of libpackagekit-glib2, whereas the installer wants libpackagekit-glib2-18, but I'm using the newest version of Mint (18.1 sarah I think it's called, I downloaded it mid-april '17) so would think I'd have the newest versions of stuff.....don't know what it actually is so unsure how to update it and googling is just leading to dead-ends!

I have a problem. I downloaded latest version on Intel graphic driver ... for my system (Linux Mint 18.2 x64 - version for Ubuntu 16.04 x64). Everything runs OK and after downloaded some files from internet, installer says 2 errors windows:

1) Error running transaction: GDBus.Error:org.debian.apt. TransactionFailed: error-dep-resolution-failed: The following packages have unmet dependencies:

libgles1-mesa: Depends: libglapi-mesa (=12.0.6-0ubuntu0.16.04.1) but 17.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 is to be installed


2)The following packages have unmet dependencies:

libgles1-mesa: Depends: libglapi-mesa (=12.0.6-0ubuntu0.16.04.1) but 17.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 is to be installed

Installer says Error and I can't go to next operation ...

Can You help me with this problem?

I have a Intel 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller, IC2D E4500, 2GB RAM, intel-graphics-update-tool_2.0.2_amd64.deb., FHD monitor Asus.

Thank You.
Sorry for my bad english.

Change /etc/lsb-release by with the next and execute "intel-linux-graphics-update-tool" other time.

#DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya"
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=17.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=zesty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 17.04"

Don't forget the /etc/lsb-release file back to its original appearance.

Hi, Thank You for your help, but
that´s not working. I think it´s becose Mint is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, not Ubuntu 17.04. Problem is with libpackagekit and some other files.

darkfreemc,
This is due to the fact that the newer package is available in the xenial-updates/xenial-backports repositories (I'm not sure which one).
Open the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list file and comment the two related lines.
Then apt update and retry, for me this have worked.
