machinehum@WalkerLovesYou:~$ lspci | grep VGA

I have also tried the steps outlined here

If it were me, I’d update to 4.0.6. If that doesn’t fix it, report back and we can try to figure it out with you.

On the kicad-pcb.org page it says:
"A solution is to configure Xorg. Create a Xorg configuration file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf, with the follow information:

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
 EndSection

"

In addition to that i reconfigured the X-server (under Ubuntu by):

 sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
