Ubuntu: no package * found installing mesa


I'm trying to install Mesa driver using the configuration file inside the tar.gz i downloaded on official site. When i run ./configuration this error is displayed: Configuration error.

I tried to install all of them by hand, but every time i finish, other packages need to be installed. So my question is: there is no way to just install all of them while configuration is running? I tried sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f, but it seems not to work.

Little off topic question: i'm doing that because my Intel driver does not support OpenGL 3.3, would this resolve my problem?

I have a i3 M370 cpu.


In general, if possible, I agree with the advice of using a ppa if available, prior to installing from source, makes it easier to remove afterwards if it fails.

If you are determined to compile for source, you can try apt-apt, to install and update databases:

sudo apt install auto-apt  sudo auto-apt update  sudo auto-apt updatedb  sudo auto-apt update-local  

Then to install dependencies

sudo auto-apt run ./configure  

If it fails to resolve dependencies you may need to search the ubuntu packages or use google to determine what package provides the dependency.

After running configure and make, you can make a .deb using checkinstall

sudo checkinstall  

This will again make it easier to remove if needed.

See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingEasyHowTo for additional advice on compiling.


Although this does not answer your direct question, as a simple workaround or for others looking for a simple way to install the drivers, you can use this PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates   sudo apt update  sudo apt dist-upgrade  

If it goes wrong, remove it with

sudo apt install ppa-purge  sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates
