This is not KDE specific so I did not want to post in the tutorials altho mods can move it there if they wish.
if you have recently done an update and seen a message normally just after a kernel update and update of the intramfs
that starts as "W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_01.bin "
or other such missing fw then the answer is to install the firmware even though you may not have a CPU that belongs to that class.
I have read other posts saying its safe to ignore but I was sick of seeing the warning when it can be solved.
download is from here
missing fw will either be kbl skl or bxt.
For me it was only the kbl chipset.
so you will see a match for the clickable link at Products Kabylake .............DMC ver 1.01
direct download is
https://01.org/sites/default/files/down ... 01.tar.bz2
after download, unpack it and run the install with sudo command the install script.
results in /lib/firmware//i915 receiving the fw file and updating the initramfs
