    Intel Driver Installer failing to install drivers on Ubuntu 13.04

    I am trying to install Intel graphics drivers on my Gateway NV57H laptop using the Intel Driver Manager and I keep getting this message:

    W:GPG error: https://download.01.org Ubuntu Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 8D8847D52F4AAA66, W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ehoover/com...ng/Release.gpg Something wicked happened resolving 'ppa.launchpad.net:http' (-11 - System error)

    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/tspindler/p...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    I am not sure if it is problem with my hardware or if 13.04 is not supported for my drivers any help is appreciated.

    First off, all Intel linux drivers are open source and included in default drivers on Ubuntu.
    So, unless you've got the absolute latest in Intel hardware, you shouldn't need to install drivers.

    Secondly, The PPA for tspindler has seemingly not been maintained or added to for five(5) years.
    The last supported version of Ubuntu for that PPA was hardy/8.04.

    It's best to open up software and updates, go to 'other software' and find the listings for that ppa and disable/remove.

    The NV57H looks like an Optimus (hybrid Intel/Nvidia graphics) system. See: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee

    None of these http://ppa.launchpad.net/tspindler/p...source/Sources are on the servers any more that is why you can not download them, best to remove as stated in the deadflowr.
