Prepare installation media

Base installation of Linux Mint

  • Follow the standard Linux Mint installation procedure - choose timezone, partitions, username, password etc.
  • Disconnect the installation media and reboot.
  • Login using previously selected username and password.

Intel & Nvidia graphics drivers

  • Add repositories with the latest open source and proprietary graphics drivers
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install i965-va-driver vainfo nvidia-364 vdpauinfo mesa-vdpau-drivers-lts-vivid vdpau-va-driver --install-recommends


  • The integrated interactive information monitor (I3M) is a GUI system integrated in the front panel of Airtop
  • You need to install the airtop-fpsvc service that provides system information to the front panel
  • Please note, the package adds "acpi_enforce_resources=lax" string to the kernel boot line, and the Airtop must be rebooted after installation
  • Now you can navigate through menus between multiple screens of the I3M that display system information, temperatures, power consumption and notifications
