      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
      DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 18.3 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
