Could you please take a picture or screenshot of the error message you get while installing the driver? I will review your the issue you mentioned with the blanc display, I will also try the sourcecode and let you know.
Hi! Unfortunately I was not able to make screenshot and now run a different Linux distribution. The message box comes when I run the 'Intel graphics update tool' ad click install. I believe that somehow in this installer you have hardcoded to only allow ubuntu.
The box appears after clicking install.
I now am testing skull canyon on arch Linux without running the Intel graphics update tool at all.
Could it be that different distributions already incorporate the required driver in the distribution and don't need the tool?
Regarding Mint: obviously I could not run this system because of the mentioned issue. If you don't get this error on mint yourself then I will buy a new hard disk and install to this disk again from scratch and send you the screenshot.
