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 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?

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):
once you've done that, we'll need to make some temporary adjustments to
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-vividonce that completes, REBOOT

Once rebooted, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -aand 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.
