can you please explain that to me a bit more detailed?
Does this mean that for 14.10 I do not need the installer and the System should just run fine?
I did the upgrade a few days ago and graphics speed is unbearable. I have to do a lot of web dev and Google chrome is killing me it's so slow. Not able to play Videos, even the performance of displaying normal text content is pretty bad.
Hi - each release of the installer takes an Intel Graphics stack release
and packages it for a given release of a distribution. When the last
installer came out, ubuntu 14.04 was the target. Ubuntu 14.10 has a
more recent set of packages than 14.04, and also a more recent set
of packages than the last installer - so applying the last installer to 14.10
would be a _downgrade_.
It's also worth noting that none of these packages are proprietary - they're just
packaged by Intel as a means of getting newer versions than are available by
default on the target distributions.
So - if you need a newer kernel version or mesa packages (or whatever) than
is currently available on your distribution, an _old_ version of the installer, one
targeted at a previous release, is almost never going to help.
There will be a new release of the installer in due course, and tha tone will target
ubuntu 14.10 and may address the performance issues you are seeing.
Having said all that, it sounds to me as if you aren't getting any video acceleration
at all right now - and I would investigate that first - are you using the i915 driver at
all or just the framebuffer driver? Is there something else wrong with your setup
that's impairing its performance?

Hi. You do appear to be using the i915 (intel) driver, and have the appropriate Intel hardware.I would normally expect you to have reasonable (although not necessarily cutting-edge game capable) acceleration with those,
What sort of problems are you seeing? Some specifics might help.
It might also be worth looking at your Xorg log to see if any errors are reported there, and checking the output of glxinfo to see what that says.
this intel installer make the battery drain as fast as the nvidia driver!!!
before installation working with intel driver let the computer stands more than 5 hours, but now only it stands for 2hours 30min with the same conditions.
Black screen after switching to the nvidia driver using nvidia-prime, removing xserver and reinstalling it solve the problem, but unfortunately, the battery still draining so fast and trying to switch to nvidia driver make an error.
Im using an Asus N56VB with an intel and nvidia 740M graphic card, and running Ubuntu 14.04LTS
Fedora 21 came out just yesterday.
The latest driver installer fails. Worked perfectly on 20. Fails on 21. The installer just gives the message: Installation failed. No further comment.
:(. I' m not a bad ass tech, didn't look for logs. Sorry.
Fedora 21 isn't supported yet. The installer delivers newer components to the targeted distribution - since F21 only just came out, and the installer was released a while ago, even if it _did_ support F21 it wouldn't be able to deliver newer components. The nest release of the installer will target F21.
Ok that's good to know that the next release will be ok for F21. :)
but just some precision here :
When i attempt to install the intel-linux-graphics-installer 1.0.7, it didn't install because of a missing dependency : libpackagekit-glib2.so.16
When i try a locate libpackagekit-glib2, i got a
Assuming you tried to install it on F21, that's sort of expected. We build the installer for each target distribution + release, and .16 was probably what was in F20. Lookid like F21 bumped it to .18, but that gets taken care of when we build the packages for each distribution.
