I'm running a HTPC (Ubuntu 15.10/Kodi) so have a very minimal Xorg installation (with no desktop environment). I've been trying to install these drivers to debug a HDMI connectivity issue but the installer dies as it seems to be designed to run from Gnome/XFCE etc. Is it possible to install this via a terminal only?
Yes, you can do what the installer does by hand - the basic steps are as follows:
- grab the config file for the installer from https://download.01.org/gfx/ilg-config.cfg
- check the section for ubuntu 15.10 to see what the apt source should be:
I think it's "deb https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/15.10/main/ wily main"
- apt-get update
- now look at the config file - in the wily (15.10) section tou will see entries for a bunch of packages:
there's a key at the top of the file explaining the entries, but basically install the packages listed as
'u' or 'i', and if you have a kernel in the range listed, install the i915-4.3.3-4.2.0-dkms package as well.
