Intel’s graphics installer didn’t work for me in 13.04 (as shown below)... However I was able to find out how to install these same drivers from the command line.
- Install the Intel Driver Update Utility
- Run the utility and you’ll get the error. The utility loads a file that defines the packages that need to be installed in the home directory. Open the file named “.ilg-config” in a text editor .
- Scroll until you find the most recent distribution.. in my case 12.10. We see this file gives the source and all of the packages to be installed. So now we have to add the source either by adding it to /etc/apt/sources.list or from the gui add it like so:
- Then do an update of the sources (sudo apt-get update)
- Now install all of the packages listed, for me it was:
sudo apt-get install libcairo2 libcairo-gobject2 libcairo-script-interpreter2 libdrm2 libdrm-intel1 libkms1 libva1 libva-x11-1 libva-glx1 libva-tpi1 libva-egl1 vainfo libxatracker1 libgbm1 libegl1-mesa libegl1-mesa-drivers libopenvg1-mesa libgles1-mesa libgles2-mesa libglapi-mesa libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental libosmesa6 libglu1-mesa i965-va-driver libva-intel-vaapi-driver xserver-xorg-video-intel libdrm-nouveau2 libwayland0
but it may be different for you.
Now if we run glxinfo we see direct 3D rendering is enabled using the Intel Open Source drivers!
Thanks! Please note, i’m not responsable if this doesn’t work... or messes things up. It worked fine for me but do it at your own risk (or just wait for them to update the app).
