5.0 Kernel

apt install linux-virtual-hwe-18.04

Note the --install-recommends just auto installs the suggested packages.

To install HWE kernel in Ubuntu desktop along with newer xorg, you can use this command in the terminal:

sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04

If you are using Ubuntu Server edition, you won’t have the xorg option. So just install the HWE kernel in Ubutnu server:

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04


"For server versions and people who downloaded 18.04 and 18.04.1, you’ll have to install the HWE kernel. Once you do that, you’ll get the newer kernel releases provided by Ubuntu to the LTS version."
