    I’ve had no luck getting 4K H.265 to play smoothly in any program in Linux Mint. I’ve tried uninstalling the Intel driver as well as installing several libde265 plugins to no avail. Kodi is the least awful, but playback is still jerky.

    Also, for anyone trying to install Mint on the Inspire, you’ll have to manually assign your IP, netmask, and gateway for either the wired or wireless network to work during the setup process.

    DISCLAIMER: I take no responsibility for what you do on your own system. This is what worked for me.

    Add unstable Kodi repository and upgrade to Kodi 18

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install kodi

    Upgrade Linux kernel to Linux 4.15.0-13-generic

    sudo apt-get install linux-image-4.15.0-13-generic

    Add apt-key to download intel-linux-graphics-installer in Mint

    wget –no-check-certificate https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-GROUP-KEY-ilg
    sudo apt-key add RPM-GPG-GROUP-KEY-ilg

    Fake lsb-release to report Ubuntu so the installer works.

    sudo vi /etc/lsb-release
    #DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint
    #DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.3
    #DISTRIB_CODENAME=sylvia
    #DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia"
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=16.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 16.04 LTS"

    Download and install updated 64-bit libpackagekit-glib2-18 .deb file required by intel-linux-graphics-installer

    wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/packagekit/libpackagekit-glib2-18_1.1.5-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libpackagekit-glib2-18_1.1.5-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb

    Download, install, and run intel-linux-graphics-installer

    wget -O intel64.deb https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/16.10/main/pool/main/i/intel-graphics-update-tool/intel-graphics-update-tool_2.0.4_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i intel64.deb
    sudo intel-linux-graphics-installer

    Reboot

    sudo reboot

    Revert lsb-release changes

    sudo vi /etc/lsb-release
    DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.3
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=sylvia

    Hello SeaMonkey,

    Thank you for this amazing feedback. It will be very helpful for users trying to accomplish the same.

    Most likely this will be included in the upcoming 19 version of Linux Mint, code name: Tara

    Best regards
