Ubuntu: Intel Graphis card not updating. Problem with ppa?



Question:

I'm trying to update my graphics card. Info:

   description: VGA compatible controller     product: 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller     vendor: Intel Corporation     physical id: 2     bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0     version: 09     width: 64 bits     clock: 33MHz     capabilities: vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom     configuration: driver=i915 latency=0  

I tried doing this in two ways:

1 . Command Line:

First add repository:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver  

Second, update:

sudo apt-get update  

This updates everything, then eventually I get a problem:

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/glasen/intel-driver/ubuntu/dists/trusty/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/glasen/intel-driver/ubuntu/dists/trusty/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.  

2 . Intel(R) Graphics Installer for Linux:

I downloaded it from this site

Then ran the program, and let it do it's thing. Eventually I got this error:

W:GPG error: https://download.01.org trusty InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A902DDA375E52366, W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/glasen/intel-driver/ubuntu/dists/trusty/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found  , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/glasen/intel-driver/ubuntu/dists/trusty/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found  , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.  

Both error look the same, but I don't quite understand it.

How do I upgrade my graphics card driver?


Solution:1

first get rid of the ppa as it's not needed and that's what's causing your problems

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/glasen-intel-driver-saucy.list  

To securely add the keys execute these commands

GET https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-KEY-ilg | gpg --import  gpg --check-sigs --fingerprint 75E52366  gpg --keyserver pgpkeys.mit.edu --recv-key 7CB0FA13  gpg -a --export 75E52366 | sudo apt-key add -  

Repeat for second key

GET https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-KEY-ilg-2 | gpg --import  gpg --check-sigs --fingerprint 2F4AAA66  gpg --keyserver pgpkeys.mit.edu --recv-key 144BD458  gpg -a --export 2F4AAA66 | sudo apt-key add -  

more info on adding keys can be found here http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/securing-debian-howto/ch7.en.html#s-deb-pack-sign


now execute these commands to add intel download installer for 14.04 64 bit

cd && wget https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/14.04/main/pool/main/i/intel-linux-graphics-installer/intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.0.5-0intel1_amd64.deb  sudo apt-get update   sudo apt-get install gdebi  sudo gdebi intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.0.5-0intel1_amd64.deb  

Now to run intel graphics installer run the following command in an open terminal

intel-linux-graphics-installer  

Follow the instructions provided by the intel installer GUI. Save any unsaved work you may have and reboot for the changes to take effect.


Solution:2

To download properly from 01.org you need to import their GPG keys, as mentioned in the release and installation notes. You may also want to disable the glasen ppa unless you intend to keep trying that source.

wget --no-check-certificate https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-KEY-ilg -O - | \  sudo apt-key add -    wget --no-check-certificate https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-KEY-ilg-2 -O - | \  sudo apt-key add -
