I downloaded Intel (R) Graphics Installer 1. 0. 4 for Linux* from here: https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads, when I open the application and I press "BEGIN" I get this error message. Im running a very low resolution like 1280x720 and my GPU supports a lot more I tried everything and the best I have was this:

traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptdaemon/worker.py", line 278, in _process_transaction
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptdaemon/lock.py", line 176, in wait_for_lock
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptdaemon/lock.py", line 136, in acquire
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptdaemon/lock.py", line 72, in acquire
    fd_lock = apt_pkg.get_lock(self.path)
SystemError: E:Problem closing the file /tmp/intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.0.5-0intel1_amd64-1.deb - close (9: Bad file descriptor)

What is "everything"? What is the command that gave you that error? What driver are you trying to install? Please edit your question and clarify. –  terdon May 16 '14 at 13:16
okay so ... i installed Intel(R) Graphics Installer 1.0.4 for Linux* and this is the error that i've got when i pressed INSTALL –  slabuser282006 May 16 '14 at 13:17
Please edit your question to add extra info, it is hard to read and easy to miss in the comments. You can then ping the user who asked for the information by leaving a comment and including a @ before their username. For example, to ping me: @terdon. That said, when you edit, please explain where you got this "Intel(R) Graphics Installer 1.0.4 for Linux", and where you "pressed INSTALL". Also explain what makes you think this driver is needed, what problem are you trying to solve? Most intel cards should be supported by drivers included in the kernel. –  terdon May 16 '14 at 13:19
BTW, why you need that file? Intel drivers should work out of the box. –  Braiam May 16 '14 at 13:21
@Braiam im running a very low resolution ... it just isn't normal –  slabuser282006 May 16 '14 at 13:23
