I temporarily replaced the contents of /etc/lsb-release with: DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=15.10 DISTRIB_CODENAME=wily DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 15.10" In this way "Graphics Installer 1.4.0 for Ubuntu* 15.10, 32-bit" was installed. Before reboot I restored the original contents of /etc/lsb-release. Drivers work fine.

Just a note, when you install 16.04, 7265D works for me without issues. I cam across this question when trying to get it updated to -21.ucode [ 142.519645] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 7265, REV=0x210 modinfo iwlwifi | grep 7265D firmware: iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode

The best answer depends on how flexible you can be. If you're a gamer and rely on the AMD card, then perhaps you should hold off. If you have hybrid graphics (you also have Intel onboard graphics) then you could still run Ubuntu just fine, but again, you're limited in gaming to what the Intel can do. I for one, have a hybrid graphics laptop which has both ...

I fixed this by uninstalling network manager and using wicd-gtk instead.

I had the same problem. I have solved it by install intel driver like below (i think it's a part of the solution ;-) ) AND chose the GLX video output in VLC setting.

Lenovo Thinkpad has Intel wireless device 7260. This is not compatible with kernel version earlier than 3.18.*. To solve the problem please update the kernel to the most updated kernel version supported by your ubuntu version. you can find the instruction to update the kernel here. Then update the 'additional Driver' from 'system settings'. Thats all.

I have a Seagate 1TB 5400RPM 64MB SATA 9,5MM Laptop Thin SSHD 8GB Flash, ST1000LM014 in my Samsung laptop, works perfectly and the speed up is noticeable. In theory this kind of disks should be perfectly equivalent to a normal disk at least at the basic "it works" level (it can create problems in seek optimization, but this is not in my experience). There ...

In this case I'd suggest that you use the following command on the machine without internet: apt-get --print-uris --yes install build-essential | grep ^\' | cut -d\' -f2 >downloads.list This will produce an output file in the current directory called downloads.list containing the download URL for all the packages apt needs to install the ...

Proprietary Radeon drivers are not supported in 16.04. Forcing an install, or keeping them installed during an upgrade will cause issues, if you can even get them to install. For now, 16.04 is using opensource AMD Drivers, but, they're not very good and not reliable. Performance is also a huge issue. Unfortunately for those of us using the AMD graphics, ...

There's no Official AMD drivers/support for AMD cards at this time. Although I'm still unsure as to why it's not being detected. This could cause issues in disabling it if it's not being detected. Either way, this is how I disabled it on my Ubuntu 16.04; 1) Edit the file /etc/default/grub. Add radeon.runpm=0 to the end of the line with ...

I had the same problem and went to the canon support site and searched for a linux driver. I downloaded the debian package (cnijfilter2-5.00-1-deb.tar.gz) and unzipped it. By double clicking on the package file (cnijfilter2_5.00-1_i386.deb) I installed the file via the Ubuntu software center. (no sudo this or sudo that) After the installation I went to the ...
