Intel Graphics Installer is a small and undoubtedly useful tool for installing or updating Intel graphics to get the best user experience with the Intel hardware. Intel has just released Graphics installer for Ubuntu 15.04, so now you can easily install/update Intel graphics in Intel hardware. Let’s see how we can do that.

Intel Graphics Installer

Intel Graphics Installer is a small tool but this updates your graphics easily. Earlier I was using it on Ubuntu 14.04 (I guess) but then when I turned to 14.10 then there was not any support for 14.10. So I missed this tool a lot. After Ubuntu 15.04 release, I updated from 14.10 and found for a long time that there is not support for Vivid also 🙁 . But finally there is support for Vivid Vervet. I’m happy now:). It is very easy to install and use Intel graphics installer in Vivid Vervet.
