Are you newbie Ubuntu or Fedora user trying to figure out how to install the official Intel graphics drivers? Look no further! This quick guide will show you exactly how to get your Intel graphics drivers working at up to date! Let’s get started!
This guide is written to work on Ubuntu and Fedora. The latest version of the Intel Driver Installer is not officially supported by anything other than Ubuntu 13.04 and Fedora 19.
Understand that this driver does not upgrade the Xorg driver in Ubuntu or Fedora for safety reasons.
“Upgrading Xorg on Ubuntu 13.04 would have far-reaching implications that go well beyond the graphics stack, including, but not limited to, Xorg input device drivers (e.g. touchpads).“
Though the installation of this driver is via a .deb/.rpm package, a repository will be installed on your system.
The Intel driver also comes with a piece of software called the ‘Intel Driver Manager’. It will assist you in updating your drivers.
