    Hello. I'm trying to install the intel graphic driver on a fresh installation of  Ubuntu 14.04 because I want to use two monitors at the same time. Infact the primary graphic card that I have is a geforce GTX 660 and the second one is embedded on the motherboard. These are the specs of the motherboard :

    and this is my operatying system :

    Linux ziomario-Z87-HD3 3.13.0-32-generic #57-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jul 15 03:51:08 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    lspci -v | grep -i vga

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK106 [GeForce GTX 660] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    I'm pretty sure that it can be done because it is already worked on the fedora 20. Infact I have already installed the graphic installer and I have activated two monitors simultaneously. Now I would like to do the same on Ubuntu 14.04. Actually I get these errors :



    What I can do ? Thanks.

    Hi - it sounds like your /etc/apt/sources.list* setup may not be quite right:

    The error removing the old configuration sounds like the installer was unable to remove the
    sources.list.d file it intends to replace.

    The other error regarding a consistent system is usually a sign that there's some conflict in
    the currently installed packages: for example, running apt-get <whatever> is likely to tell you
    that there are problems, and may suggest running apt-get -f install

    Resolving those two items should allow the installer to run.

    The installer places logfiles in /var/tmp/… so you can look there for more detail about what it is
    doing and why it thinks it can't do it - hope that sheds some light.
