  • I downloaded the 64-bit installer for Debian based systems, but when I ran it Ubuntu's software manager said:


    The package is of bad quality

    The installation of a package which violates the quality standards isn't allowed. This could cause serious problems on your computer. Please contact the person or organisation who provided this package file and include the details beneath.

    Lintian check results for /home/tama/Desktop/intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.0.1_amd64(1).deb:
    E: intel-linux-graphics-installer: malformed-deb-archive found 4 members instead of 3

    I ignored this and installed, but this should really be corrected, right?
    I downloaded this Intel Linux Graphics package to correct the issue that I could only run openGL SL 1.30, while I would much prefer the latest version. However, glxinfo still returns the same version after installing. Anyone know how to correct this?

  • Hi soso2000 and all,

    Here's an excerpt from the "known issues" section of the Installer release notes. I believe it addresses the "error" you are seeing:

    Users of Ubuntu* 13.04 have reported that, when the "lintian" package is installed, the Intel® Linux* Graphics Installer is rejected by the Ubuntu* Software Center. This is a "false positive" since the Graphics Installer is packaged and signed correctly. We recommend that casual end-users uninstall lintian in the Ubuntu* Software Center prior to using the Graphics Installer.

    There have been a few threads on this-- here's one, for instance, which includes some discussion by fledermaus and I. Bottom line: no worries, it is not a problem.

    Cheers, hope that helps.
