You don't need to manually install Intel drivers. elementary already provides the latest Intel driver that will work correctly with the rest of the hardware stack. The Intel driver installer from 01.org will not work with elementary OS. They do not support elementary OS and the installer no longer supports the Ubuntu 14.04 base that Freya uses. Make sure ...

In the terminal: sudo apt install software-properties-gtk after install -> software-properties-gtk Info retrieved from -> https://askubuntu.com/questions/441415/what-has-jockey-been-replaced-with-in-14-04/441416 Tested and implemented successful here - sure someone with more Linux experience may have an even better suggestion perhaps?

Please define "supports" :) I'm writing this on my new Dell Precision 5510 featuring an Intel i7-6820hq (Skylake chipset), running elementaryOS 0.3.2 (Freya). My only kernel related issue has been the lack of out-of-the-box support for the Intel Wireless chipset responsible for wifi and bluetooth, but that was solved by installing a back-ported driver after ...

Run sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.2.0-30-generic in terminal to remove the new 4.2 kernel.Then reboot WARNING : If you have removed your old kernel using apt-get or synaptic this can result in an unbootable computer

This came up on ask Ubuntu and I see one of the comments says the answer worked on Loki. Check Here for full details Here's what it says to do. Download this firmware In the terminal: cd /lib/firmware/brcm (If folder doesn't exist then...) sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/brcm cd ~/Downloads sudo mv brcmfmac43602-pcie.bin /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43602-...

Enabling this wouldn't harm your machine. Users of CPUs belonging to the Intel Haswell and Broadwell processor families in particular must install these microcode updates to ensure system stability. But all Intel users should install the updates as a matter of course.

You can remove them by using: sudo apt-get autoremove nvidia* It will remove everything related to nvidia, so make sure to double check before continuing. You can also try this: sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo apt-get autoremove I'm not sure if removing nvidia drivers will stop your nvidia GPU. It will probably still work and use Nouveau drivers, but ...

If you have an Ethernet cable you should connect it and update your machine before continuing: sudo apt update && sudo upgrade -y Run modprobe on the wireless adapter sudo modprobe -r rtl8723be Then try one of the following to see if it works: sudo modprobe rtl8723be ant_sel=1 or sudo modprobe rtl8723be ant_sel=2 This is a temporary solution. ...

According to this site, HP Pavilion g7-2268wm does not have Bluetooth http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03487531 I even checked the Windows drivers for the machine and couldn't find anything. http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-g7-Notebook-PC-series/5296086/model/5312246 This post claims that you need Kernel 4.4.0 (Xenial) in ...

So after doing some research. It seems you need to upgrade the linux-firmware and the kernel. Connect your machine to a LAN network and run the Update Manager to get the newest upgrades, or simply just upgrade these packages. sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-xenial xserver-xorg-core-lts-xenial xserver-xorg-lts-xenial ...

You're missing the Broadcom drivers, open terminal and paste sudo apt install bcmwl-kernel-source Reboot your machine and try to connect to the wifi.

Because this is a subjective question I’m sure you will get different opinions here (especially as it is an elementary OS User forum). Firstly elementary is stable (I have similar specifications to you) and the drivers are supported. I spend much of my time helping Windows user transition to Linux (specifically elementary) and there are clues in your ...

First, check what drivers are avaliable for your system: sudo ubuntu-drivers devices | grep -o nvidia-[[:digit:]]* Then install the one you want (replace XXX with the correct number): sudo apt install nvidia-XXX In case you have Optimus Technology you would also want to install this: sudo apt install nvidia-prime In case you want to fine tune your ...

Try this: $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install nvidia-367 nvidia-settings For GTX860M you can also try: sudo apt install nvidia-375 nvidia-settings

It seems that the Broadcom BCM43142 has some problems with the Ubuntu 16.04 base kernel that elementary OS Loki uses. There are two solutions for this. Option 1. Install the Kernel built specifically for your Wi-Fi Module Run the following two commands in the terminal: sudo apt update sudo apt install bcmwl-kernel-source Option 2. Blacklist the offending ...

Ohk. I just found the solution for the problem above. Go to AppCenter -> Updates and look into Drivers section. Install the software recommended there. That's it. It downloads and installs and WiFi starts working.

As defined earlier but never approved as answer here so I can't mark it as duplicate This clearly should be the answer for that WiFi module From: https://askubuntu.com/a/990571/890782 Getting the Driver Download the driver from here by using the link below https://minhaskamal.github.io/DownGit/#/home?url=https://github.com/endlessm/linux/tree/master/...

I don't know about the other things you asked but TLP is worth it. Just remember when you install TLP to go into terminal and type sudo systemctl enable tlp sudo systemctl start tlp

I got it fixed! Special thanks to fosslinux.com for his article here: https://www.fosslinux.com/1462/how-to-install-nvidia-gpu-drivers-in-elementary-os.htm He wrote it for Loki but it worked great for me with Juno! This is foslinux.com's instructions: STEP 1: Starting from Loki, elementary OS doesn’t support PPA. So let’s first enable it. Launch ‘...

You might have to execute iwconfig manually (the card is there but it is down): sudo ifconfig wlp4s0 up service network-manager restart (Source: https://askubuntu.com/questions/760075/cant-view-wifi-networks-after-upgrading-to-ubuntu-16-04)

This may help: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/301897/amd-gpu-pro-on-loki-ubuntu-16-04-kernel-4-4/308584 I do believe that your card is supported by the new AMD driver, however it's not preinstalled on Loki, you will need to follow the instructions posted by others on the link to get it working.

First remove what you've done with sudo apt remove nvidia-current and reboot. Then open Appcenter, go to the Installed tab and install one Nvidia driver from the available ones. Then reboot and update your question with any issue that you might have encountered.

Try with this command just change the things you need to, like the Nexus device to the one you are using. LD_PRELOAD='/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6.0.21' ~/Android/Sdk/tools/emulator -netdelay none -netspeed full -avd Nexus_4_API_23 This helped me, hope it helps you too

Try installing bcmwl-kernel-source first and see if that works. sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source Reboot your machine and see if the wifi works. If not, someone in the ubuntuforums seems to have the solution. https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2264020&highlight=wna3100 I hope that works.

Oh my gosh, I totally forgot that I had to install the xorg-dev package for testing purposes. It seems that the xserver-xorg-input-mtrack package was removed with this process. After re-install xserver-xorg-input-mtrack and rebooting the notebook everything is back to normal! Thanks @dave-g for your help. I would say a win-win: touchpad is working again and ...

You could try to (re)install the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package. It helped me with a similiar problem (other touchpad brand, but yours should be also supported by the synaptic driver)
