Is it https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/intel-graphics-installer-linux-1.1.0 ?
If so, I am having trouble using it in the latest Debian release 8.1 (Jessie), which comes with libpackagekit-glib2-18, whereas the intel graphics installer 1.1.0 needs libpackagekit-glib2-16 (at least the package at this link does: https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/14.10/main/pool/main/i/intel-linux-graphics-installer/intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.1.0-0intel1_amd64.deb).
Any thoughts on a work-around, or if this is even the correct package for intel integrated video, will be greatly appreciated.
I believe your question about dependencies has been answered in another thread - but to clarify what you need:
The installer provides a more recent version of the i915 kernel module (backported, in this case, from 3.19 to 3.16),
plus specific versions of certain userspace packages (libdrm, mesa etc) packaged for the target distribution.
You can check which kernel module is responsible for your video controller with the command:
which will tell you, among other things, the kernel driver in use for each PCI device (including
your “VGA compatible controller”).
You can't really use the installer directly in Debian, but you can get most of the same
benefits by installing the kernel from bpo (backports.debian.org).
