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 ...

I "solve" it. Option 1: boot in UEFI mode (normally, I don't use UEFI). I don't know why, this way the Xorg doesn't broke. Option 2: installing directly, without use in live mode. Frustrating, but it work too. Now, just rest to me wait a driver, because I'm using the onboard Intel graphic card.

My T460s shipped with the graphics memory turned down to 256MB in the BIOS setup. Go in there and crank it up to 512. When I did that, the UI sluggishness I experienced went away.

As with most other issues I have seen here - it was a bunch of random actions that fixed it. Connected to VGA and HDMI - only VGA worked. Created an installation USB for ubuntu 14.04 using "startup disk creator" and left it in the USB. Shutdown using the GUI. Booted into BIOS and changed the boot order to have USB boot first (or so I thought). ...

I suggest updating to latest-ish kernel. I also had to add "intel_pstate=no_hwp" to my grub cmdline

Minecraft on Linux may require a few tweaks before running optimaly. Minecraft recommends Oracle Java vs open alternatives. You should only need the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Documentation for Java provided by Ubuntu. Minecraft ships with an outdated version of lwjgl. (This is no longer true on newer versions of Minecraft) Give Minecraft ...

Uninstall the proprietary NVIDIA drivers and disable the use of the nouveau drivers. Open a terminal and execute : sudo apt-get install gksu gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub Add nouveau.modeset=0 to the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" so that it reads GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.modeset=0". Save changes and ...

I have a Toshiba Satellite L55-5392 which has an Intel Skylake i7 6700. Everything works well with 14.04 using the 4.2 kernel. The graphics are very stable, the HDMI output works fine (both dual monitor and mirroring work). Just for the sake of being complete, all of the other controllers (SATA, ethernet, wifi, bluetooth, USB 3.0) are Intel, and they all ...

This happened to me a while back. It would get to the login screen, and I could type in a username/password, but at some point it would go blank, and restart X. It eventually went away when I upgraded to a different video driver, and inspite looking for it, I couldn't find anyone else talking about the same symptoms. I suggest you try a few things, ...

So after posting my first question I will now attempt to post my first answer. So the phenomenon is called "tearing" and after looking at this link on the ArchLinux wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/intel_graphics#Configuration It was mentioned that you could create a configuration file and add an option called tearfree. So the steps are: ...
