Ubuntu: Intel video driver problems with Ubuntu 14.10?

Trying to play a little Miami Hotline in Ubuntu with Steam pointed out that something is wrong with my current setup. I had unexpected video lockups too, I hope updating the Intel video drivers from this source will solve them too. Miami Hotline works flawlessly now, so there is hope :-)

Type this in the terminal to update your intel drivers:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers   
 sudo apt-get update  
 sudo apt-get upgrade  

Warning: Performance will be decrease a little bit according to Glmark2, but it will be more stable...
