I have a problem installing NVidia drivers. It gives me an output that i'm possibly missing firmware in i915.enter image description here . And when I try it through software sources it gives me pk-client-error-quark: error while installing package: subproces from package intramfs-tools script post-intallation returned errorvalue 1 (313).enter image description here

So I downloaded firmware from enter link description here. And I unpacked the tarball. But don't know how to reinstall the i915 package. Please tell me how to install this.

It also won't fully install the Xorg driver ( same errorvalue 1 (313)).

I think I need to reinstall the i915 package in order to install the nvidia drivers correctly. But I'm not sure.

Does anybody have a solution for me how to solve this.

The update today gave me the 5.11.0-43 Kernel, so after the download I did a 'update-grub'. But I see it didn't make the initrd.img.

The DKMS status however, I don't know, doesn't give me any output. Is it a file, if so, what is it called ( I searched for dkms status and did not find it ).

Edit 211217

I uninstalled the kernel 5.11.0-43 because it appeared to be not installed the right way.

I got the Liqourix kernels after seeing a Chris Titus video on youtube. Can't remember how I got them though. As you can see I keep 2 newer kernels, 2 Liqourix and 2 original Kubuntu kernels. Now I'm using the 5.11.0-41. I got the newer kernels after reading on a forum that they had more driver for fingerprint readers. The Synaptics fp-reader is still not working though. ( No problem. )

    are initramfs-tools correct installed now? dpkg -l | grep initramfs-tools and tree /var/lib/dkms/ also please dpkg -l | egrep linux-'[g|i|h|m]' where did you get this kernel? initrd.img-5.15.0-5.4-liquorix-amd64

    please boot up a standart (from ubuntu sources) kernel and remove any packages with 5.15.5 in name like linux-modules-5.15.4-051504-generic and the others with sudo dpkg -P linux-modules-5.15.4-051504-generic (and so on) I hope it works (but initramfs-tools have to be correct installt) . If you are unsure make a simulation first dpkg --simulate -P your packages-names

    to make it more clear you have to give all packages at once sudo dpkg -P package1 package2 package3 and so on

first we remove every remaining conf files from deinstallt packages.

sudo dpkg -P $(dpkg -l | egrep '^rc' | awk '{print $2}')

Then we try again to install initramfs-tools.

wget -c http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/i/initramfs-tools/initramfs-tools-bin_0.136ubuntu6_amd64.deb

we need this package fully installed.

sudo dpkg -i initramfs-tools-bin_0.136ubuntu6_amd64.deb

Only the this works without error!! (If not make a backup and install anew)

sudo apt -f install 

for the future do not following youtube tutorials :D

The problem was plymouth. I purged it and reinstalled it. Now everything is fine. I could install the driver and the X-settings are working as well. I want to thank nobody for all the help and time invested. Gave his answer and comments already arrows up.
