    • If you are using Ubuntu 18.04 with its default 4.15 kernel you'll have issue with the newer intel graphics driver in the PPA. You should upgrade the kernel with this command:
      Code:
      sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04

                  Looks like it works now.
                  1. sudo apt install mesa-utils (and some vulkan stuff)
                  2. add ppa oibaf
                  3. sudo apt update / upgrade
