I have written a post about Intel's simple tool to download and install the latest Intel Linux Graphic driver. In that post, the installer was available for Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, not for the latest Ubuntu version 13.04 Raring Ringtail. So, today I'd like to write a step by step tutorial on how to install the Intel Linux Graphic Installer on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail.

This latest version of Intel Linux Graphic Installer supports the following graphic cards:
  • Ivybridge Intel® HD Graphics 2500/4000 (used in 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor family)
  • Sandybridge Intel® HD Graphics 2000/3000 (used in 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor family)
  • Ironlake Intel® HD Graphics (used in Intel® 2010 Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor family)
  • GMA3150 Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (used in Intel® Atom™ processor N450/D410/D450 family)
  • G45 Intel® G45 Express Chipset
  • Q45 Intel® Q45 Express Chipset
  • G43 Intel® G43 Express Chipset
  • Q43 Intel® Q43 Express Chipset
  • B43 Intel® B43 Express Chipset
  • G41 Intel® G41 Express Chipset
  • GM45 Mobile Intel® GM45/GS45/GL40 Express Chipset
  • G35 Intel® G35 Express Chipset
  • Q35 Intel® Q35 Express Chipset
  • Q33 Intel® Q33 Express Chipset
  • G33 Intel® G33/G31 Express Chipset
  • 965GM Mobile Intel® GM965 Express Chipset
  • 965G G965 Integrated Graphics Controller
  • 965Q Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller
  • 946GZ 946GZ/GL Integrated Graphics Controller
  • 945G 945G Integrated Graphics Controller
  • 945GM Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller
  • 915G 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family Graphics Controller
  • 915GM Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller
  • 865G 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller
  • 855GM 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device
  • 845G 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device
  • i830M 82830 Chipset Graphics Controller
  • 815 82815 Chipset Graphics Controller
  • 810 82810 Chipset Graphics Controller
  • 810-DC100 82810-M DC-100 System and Graphics Controller

So, if you have one of those graphic card and want to install the latest driver for it, you can use the application. Please note that installing the latest driver may break your system, so use at your own risk!

Now, open Terminal and execute the following command:
  • 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 -
The above command will make the system "trust" any software comes from Intel Linux Graphic Installer.

Then, you have to download the installer DEB file which is available for download here. Once downloaded, simply run the following command to install:
  • sudo dpkg -i intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.0.1_i386.deb
  • sudo apt-get -f install
Once installed, you may run the Intel Linux Graphic Installer by typing this command in Terminal:
  • intel-linux-graphics-installer
And follow on-screen instruction.

Good luck!
