I came across this post and recently found a possible solution. A little back story... My HP mini 210 I bought used at my local Goodwill Store for less than $50. Not expecting much from it (since it was used) I took it home. Everything appeared to work fine. Then I noticed that the battery only lasted for 2 hours unplugged and that it overheated causing ...

Simply put, AMD drivers are rubbish anyway. I had issues myself with the AMD drivers, decided I would never again go with AMD again for Linux. The performance in Windows compared to Linux is pathetic. It use to be nvidia, but they appear to have improved. That said, your intel graphics should work just fine. Intel, out of all the companies do they best job ...

Most versions of the Linux operating system include Intel graphics drivers. Intel recommends checking with your Linux distribution vendor or computer manufacturer for precompiled driver packages.Intel The Intel Graphics Installer for Linux allows you to easily install the latest graphics and video drivers for your Intel graphics hardware. This allows you ...

Because the installer could not work with 14.04.2 (HWE) or if a 14.04.1 user of the installer tried to install the lts-utopic mesa stack they've dropped any further support for 14.04.x Read here for announcement - https://01.org/linuxgraphics/node/471 Personally don't think the Intel installer provided anything of real value, at least here with Haswell ...

I use awesome wm (like fvwm, but for more handsome users), and I do this via xrandr. Try: xrandr --output $laptop_display --off --output $external_monitor --auto In my case, the displays are eDP1 and HDMI2. You can dump out the values for your system by running xrandr without arguments.

first of all, i had csgo on my lappy running on win7 64bit, 4gb ram and i used to get around 60fps. So i think the problem here is with linux. Secondly linux is not really for gaming, you should have side loaded it with your windows if you are a gamer. Now coming to your solution, try changing the windows compability layer software/package you are using. Try ...

Logout your session, open a tty. Stop the graphic session service. On Ubuntu is lightdm, Gnome is gdm, Mint is mdn. No need to type what’s after the # it's just a comment. sudo service stop lightdm #Change service accordingly sudo apt-get purge nvidia* bumblebee primus #Delete all nvidia installed libs sudo apt-get autoremove #Delete unneeded packages ...

Does your problem look like this 14.04 Thinkpad T450: Text getting messed up on large screens Not that it has an answer yet, but it looks like a general issue with the new Thinkpads and 14.04 LTS As far as I understand, 14.04 LTS is running a backport of the graphics driver - perhaps that backport wasn't 100% ;)

To answer your question directly: You have 3 choices, do nothing, upgrade Ubuntu to a version that the intel installer supports, or run another distro that the installer supports. To help in choosing: The big reason for an LTS release is to have an OS that is stable and does not change often. If having the latest graphics is important you should ...

I had this issue after updating 14.04.2 a couple of weeks ago. To fix my tearing in Netflix full-screen I did the following : 1) Install compiz config settings manager: sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager 2) Open compiz config settings manager 3) Click "Composite", uncheck "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" Seems to have resolved the ...

I spent another day on this, and an answer is pretty straightforward. I did a reinstall of Ubuntu, and doing that installed the i915 drivers but not any NVidia drivers. I then grabbed the CUDA drivers by downloading the .run file. I made sure to run it by adding on this command line option: --no-opengl-libs Prevents the driver installation from ...

I don't think you have a driver issue. Your problem is that you're trying to run Kubuntu, which has the highest sytems requirements of any *buntu edition, on a computer that has only an Intel Atom processor. For a normal performance on a computer with an Intel Atom processor, you should use a more lightweight *buntu edition like Xubuntu 32-bit or Lubuntu ...

I am answering this one 'gingerly' From my own experience(I have a fairly high-end desktop) if you have an nvidia card installed, you will most likely have not one, but two separate places where you can plug in your monitor(s) One is for the nvidia card. The other is for the intel graphics(being a part of your motherboard...does that make sense to you?) ...

Having pstate enabled may actually give you better performance, however, switching to performance over the default will maximize this. To do this, install indicator-cpufreq and then use the indicator to select performance: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install indicator-cpufreq then, press CTRL + F2, type indicator-cpufreq, and then press ENTER Click ...

The standard Ubuntu NVidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer NVidia hardware. If you want more then the standard Ubuntu repository drivers, install the xorg.edgers PPA. As the xorg.edgers group ask not to give installation instructions directly without linking to their page, this is the best I can do for now... If you ...

If you're trying to install a server, use the server package and use the 14.04.2 LTS version. That way you don't have to worry about any desktop or graphical settings, it'll be valid for 6 years (unlike 14.10) and you manage it remotely from an Ubuntu Desktop.

1. Enable Synchronize drawing to the vertical blank You can find this option under your System Settings -> Window Manager Tweaks -> Compositor if you have Xubuntu. I don't know where in other distros. This option basically means some kind of vertical synchronization when drawing. 2. Create & edit xorg.conf Create /etc/X11/xorg.conf if it doesn't exit ...

Update 2015Mar12-2238: NOT SOLVED! I'm still struggling. Original (non-)answer: Since startx works for root and fails for user, it is a permission problem. To answer the question. "In all my installed software, what can root execute that user cannot?", I first collected the data with: #!/bin/bash # for pkg in $( dpkg -l | egrep '^ii' | awk '{print ...

The exact thing you're trying to do is "impossible"ⁱ as driving one monitor with one GPU and driving the other monitor with the other GPU would create a ton of problems: What would happen if a window was spread across both monitors? Half is driven by one card and the other half by the other? In one application??? ;-) Having 2 x-servers running would ...

This seems to be a bug triggered by using threadirqs or lowlatency kernel 3.19 and intel graphics driver. bug report is here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/1430230

If you don't want to install any extra packages, switching between the nVidia GPU (Performance Mode) and the Intel GPU (Power Saving Mode) could be achieved by using the NVIDIA X Server Settings, which has already been installed along with your driver. First thing you will need to do is to find the NVIDIA X Server Settings application from your dash: And ...

Make sure that the Intel graphics driver is installed sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel

This might be because Ubuntu 12.04 still had unity 2d,while later version only support unity 3d. Intel graphics are mostly used for mid-low end models. Honestly I would just back up all my data and try to install 14.04.If it fails,then 12.04 is supported all the way until 2017,and I would just reinstall it.Perhaps you could create a third partition and ...

OK, got it! Ubuntu brings the xserver in many different versions. I installed the one from 14.04: apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-trusty This replaces the xserver and all of its drivers (and the kernel if not happened yet). Now Intel's Haswell graphics works.
