We are pleased to announce the release of the Graphics Installer for Linux* 1.0.7.
The Graphics Installer for Linux* provides an easy way for users of Ubuntu* 14.04 and Fedora* 20 to upgrade their "graphics stack" to ensure the best experience from their Intel(R) graphics hardware.
Great news - thanks! But WHY do you ignore users of ubuntu 14.10? It's a real pity...
Hi matriks: See my reply to hudsonkem below for an explanation.
I was so exciting to get graphics for my ubuntu 14.10, and you make me cry. ^^
The current Intel graphics stack release specifies kernel 3.16.x (and some other package versions).
Ubuntu 14.10 already ships with 3.16.x, so there's no driver update to give you. As such, the decision
was to push out one final update for the 14.04 (LTS) users, since we could give them a new release
but we didn't have much to add to 14.10.
I understand, but I am just a little conformed, It's my first time using ubuntu and I take the new version, só It's works fine and pretty but if I would like to use graphics It's get bugs and some programs do not work very well.
Out of interest, what sort of glitches are you seeing?
<p>some windows don't open, create lines in random color and display that on screen just like that, some windows stay white.</p>
Interesting. What make and model of laptop?
The lspci -vvnn output may also be of interest to us here.
Since you're seeing this with a vanilla 14.10 install, it may also be worth
filing a report with Ubuntu (if you haven't already)
but I dont have graphics driver, so can I compiler 1.7 to run on 14.10.? I think it happen becouse, "libgl is missing". my pc: 'desktop cce'.
Even if you could get the 1.7 installer to run on 14.10 (and it wouldn't be hard) all that would happen is it would install nothing on your system, because we don't have any packages for 14.10 in the repository the installer uses.
If libGL is missing, you probably need to install libgl1-mesa-glx on your system (it's a standard ubuntu package available from their main repos)
