  • Hey gang,

    The wait is over!

    We have released the next iteration, version 1.0.3, of the Graphics Installer for Linux*! Read the download page for more information and begin updating your graphics stack.

    This version of the Graphics Installer supports users of Ubuntu* 13.10 ("Saucy Salamander") and Fedora* 19 so you can get the most out of your Intel® graphics hardware. Gamers, for instance, require the very latest graphics stack to get the best experience out of your favorite games on Linux*. An up-to-date graphics stack impacts casual web users as well-- under the hood, the web is becoming media-rich as HTML5 increases in popularity.

    Thank you very much!  Given the repository, the installer and the source, was able to make this work with a few adjustments on 13.10 64-bit.

    First, after obtaining the keys for the repository perform a quick repo update:

    user@host:~$ sudo apt-get update

    Installer works, but in order to make it work best, found it better to start with the sudo command:

    user@host:~$ sudo intel-linux-graphics-installer

    Everything checked out fine, the code found everything as expected, rebooting now. Will check back in a few.

    Did the url of the repository change?

    If I enable I get the following error:

    failure: repodata/bedd273c05e703cf58c406b2ff59dc9b96a881e7d85c4cf3973d43808f38ebda-primary.sqlite.bz2 from intellinuxgraphics: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 404 - Not Found

    The repo should still be there: It's possible the CDN cache (or some ISP proxy)
    is only letting part of the new repo contents through - give it a day or so to
    filter through, I guess. If it's still broken then, shout again and we'll have another

    I am receiving the wrong version from the repo with Fedora 19:

    No Presto metadata available for intellinuxgraphics

    Hi - there seems to have been a problem with the metadata not being updated when the
    installer package was updated: We're working on getting that fixed right now.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    This is great news, but I wonder: when will you support other distros? Linux Mint for instance is a very popular distro for home users.


    Off-topic: I really wish there will be, at some point, an updated Poulsbo driver so my Atom netbook can perform decently on the web.

    Hi, when I try to install this new version, I receive this error message in Ubuntu 13.10 64 bits:

    GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.PackageKit was not provided by any .service files

    Do you have aptdaemon and/or packagekit installed?

    First of all, I'm very pleased to see Intel to provide free and open drivers for Linux !

    My Linux is CrunchBang, based on debian with mini laptop Atom N2600.

    Ubuntu installation procedure works fine until package installation rejection due to expected libglib2.0-0 version >= 2.35.9 and newer version available for my distro is 2.33.12 !

    So, I'm not able to install driver update (and my VGA port stays undetectable by xrandr / hp mini 4100sf).

    My question is: building this new driver update really requires this new version of glib, or is it only an update to current glib version ? To avoid my problem, it would be better to use a relative old version of glib... if possible !
