I'm trying to get Vulkan running on my linux laptop. I've tried this:

https://launchpad.net/~canonical-x/+archive/ubuntu/vulkan

from here: https://01.org/linuxgraphics/blogs/jekstrand/2016/open-source-vulkan-drivers-intel-hardware

But the packages have been purged from the PPA. How can I get Intel Vulkan drivers for Ubuntu 16.04?

Try using the PPA from https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/mesa

It's mostly up-to-date and also includes Vulkan drivers for Intel GPUs. I'm using that one too for development.

The padoka PPA (linked in Sascha Willems's answer) worked for me as well, on Ubuntu 16.04.

After adding the PPA to apt, I did the following:

  1. sudo apt upgrade libglapi-mesa libgl1-mesa-dri vulkan-utils
  2. For some reason I had to create an extra symlink for the intel driver:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/libvulkan_intel.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvulkan_intel.so
