View Full Version : [ubuntu] xorg 1.17.1

May 11th, 2015, 10:52 PM

I've been trying to upgrade my xorg due to lacking the correct version. Gallium Nine (https://wiki.ixit.cz/d3d9) requires 1.16 and I'm stuck with 1.15.1.

Is there anyone who can help me upgrade it? Been trying to find a proper guide on this one. Either I've gone blind or there are none.

pingaan; Hello;

My 1st thought is to enable HardWare Enablement stack .
Are you aware ?
This might serve your purpose.

hey, It could happen

X.Org Server 1.17 is in Ubuntu 15.04.


I am not sure if it is in the repositories of older versions but if we look for it in Synaptic Package Manager we should search for xserver-xorg-core. I do not think that 14.04 will get the 15.04 hardware enablement stack until 14.04.3 is released in August this year.

I forgot to mention that I recently upgraded to 14.10. I thought the 1.17 release was for 14.10 as well.
I can settle with 1.16.
That's probably the reason to why it's not working then, eh?

With that said can you point me in the right direction of proper ppa?

@bashing-om, isn't that enabled by default?
