Does this help? https://goo.gl/pqzI1u (askbuntu forum user had same issue).

It is quite rare for hardware manufacturers to supply their own drivers for Linux, partly because they don't care about Linux but mostly because generic drivers for most hardware are included in the Linux kernel itself. Linux kernel drivers tend to be for generic chipsets, not particular brand-names (many hardware devices use the same chips as equivalent ...

(This answer doesn't contain a working solution, but see the end of the post for details we found out while investigating.) The instruction mentions "Linux 2.6", which is ages old—the current version is 4.5.2. I wouldn't expect this driver to work. The second point is: drivers that aren't part of Linux are usually of inferior quality and lack support. So ...

You might wish to try using the version of Linux in a Virtual Machine first https://my.vmware.com/en/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/12_0 , which should usually sort out all the driver stuff for you -- it certainly did with most versions of Linux I successfully trialed on two different Toshiba brand machines... Once ...

The fact that Toshiba don't provide the drivers on their site doesn't mean your hardware won't work with Linux. The best thing you can do is get Kali LiveUSB, write it onto a pendrive and boot from it. Then just check what works and what doesn't. LiveUSB doesn't require installation and doesn't write anything onto your disk (unless you ask it to), so it's ...

I solved my problem the ugly way. I'll wait with marking this as correct as I think there is a better solution. After trying a variety of solutions, among other trying to get information from /sys/ (readlink /sys/block/sda/device/driver etc). But I only found information that it was some kind of SCSI driver, which didn't help me. Finally I used my desktop ...

Maybe your disk is on LVM partition . check : /dev/mapper/lvm and also you can use df or lsblk command to find that path of your disk. mount command will also helps.

I give up trying this. It is not working either with 16.04 LTS which is using 4.4 linux kernel. And on Windows 8.1 with proper driver ended with failed too. Here I am finally using BSD (OpenBSD, NetBSD, and another BSD-based) succesfully working. On BSD, it is mounted as ulpt0. It's a dead end trying on other Linux (Debian-based, Arch, RedHat, blabla). ...

According to wireless.wiki the Intel® Wireless 8260 device is supported by the kernel 4.1 and later , Install build-essential and linux headers download iwlwifi-8000-ucode-25.30.13.0.tgz from here Type the following command: tar -zxvf iwlwifi-8000-ucode-25.30.13.0.tgz cd iwlwifi-8000-ucode-25.30.13.0 sudo cp iwlwifi*.ucode ...

Just fetch the source of the binary package with apt-get source epson-inkjet-printer-escpr This will create the directory epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.4/ in the current directory. There are lots of PPDs in epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.4/ppd. As regards question #1: Since I have the "approved" binary, printer-driver-escpr, I don't see the need to ...

It is the lack of support for the GPU in kernel (and likely also in X.Org video driver) which you need to somehow solve. Proper support for Sky Lake based GPUs in i915 kernel driver should be available from kernel 4.4 on. Then again, myself I still couldn't get a Intel GPU with device code 1912 working in Debian Jessie under 4.4.5 due to something with ...

You have to check if your UEFI support this feature. On my laptop (Lenovo z70) I was not able to permanently enable the discrete nvidia gpu. That's right anyway, you shouldn't use the discrete video card when not needed: this would lead to heavy power consume and more heat. You should activate the discrete video card only when really needed (using optirun, ...

This looks like a kernel bug, please report it, then try a newer linux-image-amd64 package from the official backports repository. If that still exhibits the problem, try an upstream kernel as explained in 1.

You can also temporarily blacklist them on the grub command line (linux line) when you boot with the syntax module_to_blacklist.blacklist=yes OR modprobe.blacklist=module_to_blacklist You need to modify the grub,cfg to make the changes permanent. Mind you, this solution will not work for few modules

This Dockerfile from this blog post demonstrate an ideal way to get started with a Linux GUI running in a (Docker) container. A similar setup can be achieved using a CoreOS machine(s) as a host, and X11 and SSHD running inside the container. In the example I linked, the author also included software like the JRE (Java), Firefox, LibreOffice, and a ...

Personally i get the entire scsi directory in /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/ (in example for jessie) on a pc freshly installed and put it in /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/ in initrd.gz of installer (http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2009/07/how-to-view-modify-and-recreate-initrd-img/) With that, no problem on all recent dell workstations ...

Your laptop has a BIOS whitelist and the Intel 5100 is not on it I would recommend calling Lenovo and ordering an Intel wifi card with 5 Ghz from them that will work with the X220 as the option to update the BIOS with a version that eliminates the whitelist might render the laptop useless. I found the maintenance manual for the X220 and the Centrino ...

No, it does not exist in Linux kernel 4.1. It seems that the patch in question had a v2 proposed, which was then abandoned. The patch author seems to have opted to use the "at24" driver instead.

You should see if relevant messages is available in logs or dmesg Look for lines like missing firmware file xxxx/xxxx (Since I do not have a Linux box at hand, it's just an example found online) Then you'll know which file to download.

I solved the problem. Apparently, it was a driver problem. I executed sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg with the VGA cable connected.
