I am running a Gigabyte Mobo with intel HD4600 on board graphics.
If I install Battle.Net though PlayonLinux it installs fine, but when I try to start the game I only get a black screen.

This happens with any Ubuntu based distro running 14.04.

If I install Manjaro on the same machine Battle.net runs fine.

Also, if I install an Ubuntu distro running 15.04 I can then install the Intel proprietary graphics drivers which solves the problem.
I am running Xubuntu 15.04 and the game runs fine after I install the Intel drivers.

Peppermint 6 is running 14.04. Is there a way to upgrade to either 14.10 or 15.04? That way I could install the Intel drivers. The drivers are not avail for 14.04.

Anyone have a fix for the issue with Peppermint 6?

Thanks
Len

Hi Lend27, I would think you need to update your kernel to a newer version.  What version of Peppermint Six are you using 64-bit or 32-bit?

OK you should be able to get onto the 15.04 kernel and graphics stack via the LTS enablement stack (lts-vivid):
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack
once you've done that, we'll need to make some temporary adjustments to
/etc/lsb-release
then you'll be able to use the Intel graphics driver installer .. once installed you'll want to undo the edits to lsb-release.

Step one, updating the kernel and xorg stack .. open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-core-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-vivid libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-vivid
once that completes, REBOOT

Once rebooted, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
and if that states you're now running the 3.19 kernel we'll move on to making the edits to lsb-release and using the intel driver installer.
