[SOLVED] How do I install Intel HD Graphics 530?

Post by LinuxEnthusiast » Wed Aug 15, 2018 6:27 am

Hello,
This is my first post here and it's been a month since I've installed Linux mint 19. Can anyone help me with the installation of the above mentioned driver?

You already have the correct driver (modesetting). There's no other one, Intel doesn't really do binary video drivers. Is there a problem with video you're trying to solve?

^ true but if you want video hardware acceleration you'll also need:

Code: Select all

apt install i965-va-driver
If you need vdpau (probably not but in case of doubt just get it, anyway) then run this and uncomment the last two lines (=remove the # sign in front) in the editor that pops up:

Code: Select all

apt install libvdpau-va-gl1
xed admin:///etc/X11/Xsession.d/20vdpau-va-gl

I just want to ensure that the graphic drivers are in place so that I can enjoy a smooth gaming experience. :D
