Intel Graphics Installer is an open source application that provides Linux users with a straightforward way to install the latest video drivers for their Intel graphics cards in any Linux-based operating system.

The program has been created because of the lack of graphical installers for the official Intel graphics and video drivers on the Linux platform. With it, you can rest assure that you’ll have all the latest optimizations, fixes and enhancements for your Intel graphics hardware.

Getting started with Intel Linux Graphics Installer

When running the installer, it will first locate and configure the software repositories required for updating your Linux system with the latest graphics drivers from Intel. It will also check to see what Intel graphics card is available on your machine.

In addition, the installer will retrieve the necessary information from the official website where the Intel Graphics Stack is stored, checks to see if your Linux distribution is supported, verifies if you use a compatible Linux kernel, checks available repositories, as well as the status of the package manager.

The installer automatically installs the latest Intel graphics drivers by ensuring the conscistentcy of the system, listing packages, setting up repositories, installing the required packages, and updating the package cache.

When installing the Intel video drivers with this native Linux installer, you will be able to see a report of what exactly was installed in your Linux machine. It will list all the added, updated, downgraded and removed components.

It is distributed as a native installer that works by default with the latest stable versions of the Ubuntu and Fedora Linux distributions. However, Intel also provides a source archive that allows users to configure, compile and install the program in other Linux OSes.

Bottom line

Overall, if you use Linux and your computer uses an Intel graphics card, you can use this native installer to get the best user experience with your current desktop environment.
