    Hello, when i try to install Intel Graphics Installer under lubuntu x64 i get this error:


    Checking distribution .... Failed


    Isn't Lubuntu supported?

    The installer won't in general work on derivatives as we don't know in advance if a rebuild will be necessary or if packages built for the upstream distribution will work as is:

    Some people (running mint, for example) have had success tricking the installer into running - while this is not supported the main thing is to trick lsb_release -a into giving the same output as it would on the ubuntu version on which your lubuntu version is based.
