Hi jonas99, thought your efforts were worthy of making this post a true [STICKY] so that it gets to the top of the tree and because of a lot of discussion on the subject of late! :D 60 blue jewels to you sir! :D

Hi spiderobert as per Wolfman in you other post. Intel has dropped support for all previous of its linux driver. so Zorin OS 8 is no longer supported.you need to upgrade to Zorin OS 9 for this to work.
use this link to help update as per wolfmans suggestion.
http://www.zoringroup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4848

So Intel Graphic Installer 1.0.5 will not work for Zorin 8 and below
Intel Graphic installer 1.0.4 for linux is still avail for now and it supports Zorin 8
https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/2014/intelr-graphics-installer-1.0.4-linux
so substitute the 1.0.5 files with the 1.0.4 files.

Hi
I was trying to install the new intel driver for os9 and i got to the step where you add the driver and when i put the command to add the 32 bit driver i get the following message

noway@zorinos9:~$ cd /tmp && wget https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/14.0 ... 1_i386.deb

noway@zorinos9:/tmp$

As of now my comptuer is still running but i have no idea what to do now or if any thing happened to my comptuer.

Hi
I was trying to install the Intel Graphics Installer 1.0.5 for ZorinOS 9 and when I got to step where to install the 32 bit version I got a Error 404 message. So I went and did a Google search about it and I found out that a new version came out on 8/4/2014 Intel Graphics Installer 1.0.6 for ZorinOS 9 you can find it here
https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads

I went and installed 1.0.6 and then updated my the graphic driver and for my graphic card which is a
Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family I had no problems (at least not yet lol).

I just thought I let you guys know so maybe the guide above can be updated for the new version that is out now because if anyone tries to use the 1.0.5 guide it you will get a Error 404 message (just a suggestion).

Thanks
