I am new to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS I have NUC6 Intel i6260U with Iris 540. When I playing mp4 or Youtube video the streams look a little stacked. The link above with Intel® Graphics for Linux* will help for me or do I need newer driver?

If you want them to function the way they do in Windows then bumblebee really is your best bet. The monitor will run on the intel chipset and whenever you want to run something with your nvidia card you use optirun or primus if primus is installed. example: optirun steam You can do this through the terminal or even add it to a shortcut/launcher

Does this happen at all when you disable the option to save your session upon Shutdown? Maybe play around with the hibernation/sleep options a little. It sounds like it might be linked to this particular problem.

By default a PCI-E graphics card will be used in preference to an onboard one, older AGP systems sometimes needed this to be manually set in the BIOS but not on newer hardware. If it is reporting the card in use as the AMD then it is already being used it will be using the open source radeon driver. The AMD proprietary drivers will not work since AMD ...

1) Temporary solution: open terminal and type: cvt 1920 1080 [your refresh rate] e.g. cvt 1920 1080 60 output of the command likes this: Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync copy the output line after the Modeline part and add it to xrandr: sudo xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 ...

It was not an issue with the i8042 controller (my fault) After more research in this awesome place, I could understand that BusyBox comes up when the system could not mount the root filesystem. As this answer suggest, starting a live Ubuntu and restoring a previous superblock will make it work. The controller for i8042 seems to be a different issue :-)

You may be running into KSP bug #7493 or something similar. Try running with -gforce-glcore33.

I had the same issue on my Samsung laptop with my Ubuntu 14.04 and kernel 3.19. For me the solution was setting the line in the configuration file /etc/default/grub as following: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video.use_native_backlight=0" and then updating settings: sudo grub-update If t will not help you can try to turn off Legacy (CMS) ...

Looking at the oher answers it seems that you can't dedicate each GPU to different monitors ATM. However all modern GPU's support multiple monitors. I have 2 monitors right now on my 5-6 year old Radeon HD 6490. I don't even need proprietary drivers for it. Oh yeah and I also have Intel hybrid graphics, but my Intel GPU is probably switched off.

For one, you'll want the proprietary Nvidia drivers like Frank mentioned. Another thing which should help: from what you said it sounds like you have one monitor running off of your CPU (through the mother board), and one running off of the GPU. I would recommend running both monitors off of your Nvidia GPU. The 970 can definitely support it, and it's ...

I also got the same effect after the latest update on Ubuntu 15.10 yesterday. It feels like some weird Compiz plugin has been enabled, but I can see nothing in Compiz. The text is blurry by default, but passing a mouse over it brings it into focus. But not all areas come into focus. Images also seem affected. My computer has Nvidia card, and I updated to the ...

This happened to a computer I worked on. Try resetting Unity configuration and resetting LightDM configuration. Sometimes, an NVIdia driver can mess things up, too. On Grub, choose Advanced options for Ubuntu. Choose the lowest version of Linux you can find with recovery mode. This is very important. On the new menu that apears choose Drop to shell ...

I have a lenovo thinkpad e550 with Intel HD Graphics 5500 and ubuntu 14.04. When I connect the monitor through VGA the monitor and hve the power connected it starts flickering! If I unplug the power it doesn't flicker. If I put it back it flickers. It seems to be a ground problem - not sure. Try to use tlp http://linrunner.de/en/tlp/tlp.html. I installed tlp ...

Based on the xrandr output you posted, it looks like your card or driver does not support the DVI output. Try using one of the other outputs, and make a simple xrandr script to configure your monitors at login. My login script is just one line like this: xrandr --output VGA-0 --left-of DVI-0 --primary I called it lxde-setup.sh and added it to the ...

A post on the Lubuntu Official Facebook group announced that this problem was caused by the omission of the package xserver-xorg-video-intel from 16.04. Installing this package regained all the lost functionality and allowed me to remove nomodeset from grub.

No, I do not believe it will install or if so it will not run the way it should on 14.04. Version 1.4.0 is for ubuntu version 15.10. The version for 14.04 was an older version. However, once the intel guys end support, they usually end the ability to even install the older version. Support should soon be out for 16.04LTS so you might as well wait until ...

Also, it's helpful to cut out adapters when testing. I experienced the exact same issue as James; my problem was a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter capping the graphics to 1920x1200. A digital media professional explained to me there are capability negotiations going on behind the scenes and the cheaper adapters take a lot of shortcuts, hence the low price. ...

Taking the advice from this link worked for me.. As a TL;DR, it seems that xfce4 uses a pretty garbage, non-maintained compositor to render windows. Compton is a much better option. Install compton, and then copy and paste the recommended text in the .conf file. Good luck!

I had the same problem on my lenovo ideapad Z500. I found this trick that worked on my ubuntu 16.4: On the grub configuration file /etc/default/grub modify the following line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" by adding this string: acpi_backlight=vendor. (In my case i removed acpi-osi=linux and replaced, so, in the end it was: ...

Here's a simple shell command that anyone can execute in order to find out which graphics card(s) is/are present on the computer: lspci |egrep -i 'vga|display' I recently experienced the same issue. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 5548 laptop with hybrid graphics, I mean, it has two GPU (Graphics Processing Units): a VGA compatible controller Intel ...

Try disabling/enabling the hardware acceleration in Settings /Advanced Settings in Chrome. See if it's happening in Firefox. You could also try this: http://itsfoss.com/netflix-ubuntu-1404-desktop-app/

You can ignore the Warnings (W) but you have to remove the ppa with errors (E), because they are not available to Xenial. In order to do so, you can either manually remove the .list files from /etc/apt/sources.list.d or (preferred) via the GUI program "Software and Updates" (you can find it in the Dash). Please note that the Intel graphic drivers that you ...

I had a similar issue, and this worked for me: sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel xserver-xorg-core sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg Followed by a reboot. Was having many irritating graphics crashes before, none since. It oddly didn't make Ubuntu recognise the device, but at least I'm not getting crashes now. Adapted from ...

I solved it in a very simple way. I deleted the xorg.conf... First I tried moving to a textual tty, switch to intel and run "sudo nvidia-xconfig". After logging out and then logging in again I noticed that the resolution was messed up (only one, nearly 640x480) but at least it was not failing to log in. So I tried to remove xorg.conf and now it works!

Got it. I made the mistake of assuming all the background was part of the problem, when the problem was just that grub2 couldn't find the system: Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs... I imagine the cause is that I forgot to run "sudo update-grub2" after running "sudo update-initramfs." The solution turned out to be to boot to a ...

Same issue here on Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW (same GPU and CPU, Ubuntu 16.04). After I changed "quiet splash" in grub to acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native idle=nomwait the fan stopped spinning like mad and integrated GPU seems to work. But now the system fails to shutdown normally and also hangs on executing glxinfo command. Actually I don't quite understand ...

I have exactly the same CPU and GPU and the same issue, I posted a similar question about this issue. From what I've read sky lake CPU's are not supported fully yet.

Had a big D'oh! moment here. Might also help the eternally confused. No Linux was working for me. Found my pc had two hdmi outputs. One on the m'board and the other on the graphics card. Linux was correctly displaying from the graphics card to the TV but failed to set audio similarly. ROSA linux using KDE, found "HDMI2" on the audio output setup. It tested ...

This probably won't fix it, as I've seen these rabbit holes you staring at go pretty deep before, but I would start with doing available updates on your system. I can see in the screenshot you left that update manager has some for you to do. Frequently the problem with these rabbit holes that go this deep aren't going to be easy to fix with updating one deb ...

I had a similar problem when trying out Ubuntu 16.04LTS on my Acer Aspire 5630 laptop with Intel Mobile integrated graphics 940GM/GMS 943/940GML. I could only reach 1024x768 resolution and xrandr would not detect gamma or any higher resolution. After trying many suggestions from the net, I simply installed the xserver-xorg-video-intel package and was then ...
