From https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/intel-graphics-installer-linux-1.4.0: Ubuntu 16.04 is already current with the latest Q1 2016 Intel Graphics stack and therefore no Graphics Installer is needed. This means that no additional installation is necessary.

I found the answer on this post. And yes, a part of the problem was secure boot, like the previous answer stated. But the previous answer didn't work towards disabling secure boot.

I have solved my problem. I first write the potential source of my problem, and in the next paragraph I explain my solution. I recall my specs here : Motherboard : GPU : CPU : OS : Ubuntu 16.04 Source of the problem : I had the graphic card running before, and an issue forced me to re-install the OS. This caused my BIOS to set the graphic card ...

Found the answer after two days, posting it here for others to find. This modified driver for Ubuntu 15.04 fixed the problem for me. Many thanks to the author! Those of you who, like me, are new to Linux, will appreciate how easy it is to install them.

Have you tried this: sudo dpkg --configure -a and it might work fine this way.

I figure you have Ubuntu 16.04 and installed firmware using one of the github sites. Recently a new version of package linux-firmware was uploaded to the repositories. When installed, it replaced the firmware you had. If you wish to check, look at dpkg -l | grep linux-firmware The newer version is 157.1 and the quick solution is to wget http://mirrors....

Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, etc are ALL the same Ubuntu-core. If it works on one, it should work on any of them. Alternatively, you can download specific drivers for your 'all-in-one' from Epson webpage. Download the deb files for your platform (x86, x64, etc) and install by opening them with (Gnome) Software.

Actually you have a default graphic card. For use latest driver you need go to painel configuration and going to software and update --> aditional driver and choice latest proprietary driver. This resolve all probleme with my graphic card Good luck

You can install your driver via the package manager : Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and : Remove old nvidia packages : sudo apt-get purge nvidia* Find the driver versions available in the repositories : sudo apt-get update apt-cache search nvidia binary The output may look similar to : nvidia-340 - NVIDIA binary driver - version 340.96 nvidia-340-...

Some power management tools pm-utils are installed by default. You can install laptop-mode-tools to use extended power management features by sudo apt-get install laptop-mode-tools This package will do most of power saving automatically, but you can tune it using config files. For Ubuntu 16.04 pm-tools and laptop-mode-tools do not automatically detect ...

I've seen multiple people reporting odd and serious problems after installing katoolin or "Kali tools" in Ubuntu. Problems such as boot/login issues, or even Ubuntu now identifying itself in the terminal as being Kali Linux. In general it's a bad idea to "mix and match" operating system components unless you know exactly what you're doing. I would recommend ...

This problem exists because Atheros re-used the chip VID and PID. See this bug report As a workaround you can patch the btusb.c module and change it form ath3k to Rome. I've built a DKMS package to fix this issue and uploaded it to my PPA. https://launchpad.net/~hanipouspilot/+archive/ubuntu/bluetooth/+files/btusb-lp1542743-dkms_0.1_all.deb Install this ...

Open a Terminal window and type: sudo apt-get install sane. SANE = Scanner Access Now Easy. It'a an universal program who access scanner directly at hardware level, it doesn't require any driver.

TP Link 727n v1 or v3. Ralink chipsets are rt3070 v1 and rt5370 v3. The driver is rt2800usb.The version # can be found at the end of the FCC ID: ########V3 located on the back of the device.

My Lenovo G50 has an airplane mode button (airplane icon on F7 key). Hitting Fn+F7 turns off my wifi. That might explain his wlan "hard blocked" status.

Okay, I fixed it. After hours of tweaking and brute forcing, I finally found a configuration of firmware files and board files from various git repositories. For my system, I needed the kvalo board-2.bin and the atondwal board.bin and firmware-5.bin. For anyone who has the same problem as me, these can be found from: https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware ...

If you're not willing to install Vulkan's beta drivers manually (which I don't recommend you doing anyways) you can try out this which appears to be a PPA that includes Vulkan. At the moment I believe that Vulkan is in a beta stage and your improvements might be considered negligible in additional consideration that you may have some system instability.

The best I could find is this one, github.com/snuf/iomemory-vsl, but as the developer mention, it is not tested with last kernels, last commit was 3 months ago, you may want to give it a try. From the errors you got, it seems you have tried to build deb package. I tried as documented in README, installing to DKMS manually. It does build fine in Ubuntu 16.04 ...

Thanks to Pilot6, he gave a good advice. So, I fixed it. Disabled the secure boot. Then run the command sudo dkms remove -m rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux/1.0 --all And then sudo dkms install -m rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux -v 1.0 After reboot, my wi-fi works again. And now I know how to deal with it after future kernel updates. Thanks

While Android Dev made a great answer, I want to add a few things. First, I'm going to start out with a bit of a tip. We're here to answer your questions, but we generally don't like having to research your computer to get its specs. People have different variations of the same model, or even custom models, and it can be tricky trying to figure out how to ...

Ubuntu has open-source drivers for almost everything. Everything should work out of the box. Although, take note that you may have some issues. It is not too uncommon to have issues with Wi-Fi, and your life is practically over if you have Nvidia Optimus. (The optimus part doesn't apply to you I think, since at least from what I could find you have ...

The driver should already be there by default. If it doesn't work, try apt-get update

I had the same logs, and the solution given by Quentin worked for me (Ubuntu 16.04 on an MSI laptop) edit the file : "/etc/default/grub", and after 'quiet splash', add 'pci=nomsi' (inside quotes) (I had already added "nomodeset" in the past for another reason) save the file and run : sudo update-grub then restart

Actually there are 2 different revision of this tl-wn725n wifi adapter, the v1 and the v2 which have different chipsets. How to recognize them? The tp-link website say that is possible to recognize them by the FCCID (labeled on the adapter). If your FCCID terminates with v2 then is the second revision, which use the RTL8188EUS Realtek chipset. Otherwise ...

Here is a little light reading on environment variables for those sleepless nights, but to cut to the chase, I quote: "A suitable file for environment variable settings that affect the system as a whole (rather than just a particular user) is /etc/environment. This file is specifically meant for system-wide environment variable settings. It is not a script ...

You can set an environment variable system-wide by setting it in /etc/default/locale. This will set it for all users, so you want to be sure that's what you really want. Keep in mind that local settings (such as in .bashrc) will override the system-wide setting.

Try installing Ubnuntu 16.04. If you encounter same problem then on boot menu select try without install and press e and add nouveau.modeset=0 after quiet splash --- this works for me. Then after loading Ubuntu install it.

The driver is attempting to initialize VCE on a card that does not support it. The message is totally harmless - just ignore it. sudo apt purge libgtk2.0-0:amd64 sudo apt install libgtk2.0-0:amd64 The above command should solve the issue with the VCE issue. AMD catalyst is no longer supported as of 16.04

I know this is 2 years old, but I found a solution to this problem. You have to prevent your computer from even trying to load the radeon drivers. cd /lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon mv radeon.ko radeon.ko.bak Note: this was on 14.04 Funny coincidence though, my laptop's also a DV6 6121tx.

AMD GPUs generally work fine with the open source drivers. I'm currently using an AMD R9 Nano on 16.04 with no problems. However, I am not doing any work that requires OpenCL 2.0, nor have any apps or games which require OpenGL > 4.1. AMD has released a beta proprietary driver for Vulkan, if you require that. If you require OpenCL 2.0 or OpenGL > 4.1, and ...

No. There's currently no fglrx or because the latest Ubuntu release dropped amd's propietary drivers support. Also, if you have an APU (Accelerated Processor Unit), those AMD's apus with Turbocore you must stay away from installing Ubuntu 16.04. The actual drivers don't support boost processor states so your proc's performance will be limited to its common ...

Write a letter to the manufacturer asking for the driver if they won't develop the driver then ask if they would assist for developing it and try to talk to a Kernel developer willing to ask for the needed information.

I got this printer working on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial (and it should also work for Vivid). Unfortunately, there is no Xenial driver for the Canon Pixma MG5200 series (I have an MG5220).

Find the nvidia management app. Type nvidia in the dash to find it. There you can choose which profile you want to be applied, weather performance mode (nvidia drivers will used) eco mode (intel drivers will be used)

The problem is that in Ubuntu 16.04 with UEFI and SecureBoot enabled unsigned kernel modules do not load. In your case nvidia module is not loaded. The module is not signed. That should be fixed as a bug. Disable SecureBoot and the problem should be fixed.
