Download http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/r ... _amd64.deb
Reboot into 4.15 kernel and double click the file to install, then reboot into the 4.15 kernel again

Firefox tells me this file is malware or a virus. Is there another place I can download it?

OK thanks. I might give it a try. For the time being I've gone back to a previous kernel.
