  • seems that ubuntu 15.10 broke my graphic card

    dmesg it's complaining all over.

    when i run intel-linux-graphics-installer it says distribution is not supported

  • Hi - Artur, glad you got your problem sorted out. Since people are asking, a couple of things worth mentioning:

    - the 15.10 installer has gone to QA for testing
    - wily already contains the i915 kernel module and related userspace libraries that the installer would have provided, so it's just a VAAPI (accelerated video playback)update this time
    - Ken, Radoslav (and anyone else seeing these problems) - does Artur's fix work for you?

  • Hey there,

    I have Ubuntu 15.10

    and images may not display correctly.

    I have done tests and default glxgears working properly,

    but when I force software rendering, it operates erroneously.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi - could you supply the output of ‘lspci -kvnn’? That will tell us the exact hardware you have.

    Also of interest - there may be errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log or the output of dmesg.

    Have you changed any settings to do with the desktop environment? Like enabling or
    disabling any compositor features or similar - or is this a fairly standard out-of-the-box
    set up?

  • Hi,

    output of 'lspci -vnn':

    I looked logs and only see errors in /var/log/lightdm/x-0-greeter.log:

    No errors at /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

    This behavior occurs after migration from 15.04 to 15.10 (the installation release was Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot" and have always updated without problems).

    In the release 15.10 I have not made changes to the desktop environment compared to the settings at the release 15.04

  • Hm. On the off chance this is an UXA vs SNA problem, can you configure the device to use
    UXA acceleration?

    In the device section describing your intel card a directive like

    Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"

    Where the whole section currently looks something like:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"
    Driver "intel"
    Option "AccelMethod" "sna"

    It's possible there is no device section at all currently, in which case you can add one.

  • Indeed this was the cause.

    By adding the option in xorg.conf it has solved the problem.

    Thank you very much for your help and dedication.

  • Hi,

    now has appeared a new bug.

    At a given moment, all new window I open is painted in black:

    And previously opened are still seeing correctly, but the top bar of the window (title bar) is painted in black.

    Alwais happens when clicking the right mouse button on an item to display a drop-down list o open new dialog.
