    I want to upgrade the driver for my Iris Pro 5200 (Sager NP2740) . I was able to add the necessary keys (2). Thanks to all the contributors here for their efforts. (I am running Ubuntu 14.04  LTS with all updates from Ubuntu. 

    Can someone provide me with the proper PPA?

    After you download and install the Intel Graphics Installer, all you have to do is run the executable binary intel-linux-graphics-installer and then click on it's Begin button.

    That binary will automatically fetch identification data from your system - like which Linux distro you're using, what's your graphics device, which graphics driver is actually installed etc. - and based on those informations it will self-configure to access the correct/respective/corresponding repository at (which is not a PPA, because PPAs are hosted by Launchpad).

    Thereafter, adding those 2 keys (like you already did) and running intel-linux-graphics-installer is all you need to do: you do that and the intel-linux-graphics-installer binary will automatically do the rest (read those 2 keys and use them to download and install all the necessary data from the repository).

    This is why you won't (and don't need nor have to) find any "Intel PPA" inside /etc/apt/sources.list

    The installer failed last week with the same error that everyone else was getting. Tried it again today and the installer completes. Although, I have no way to tell if it actually installed anything can I verify it is using the new driver?

    Open the terminal window and run these commands in the exact sequence as shown below:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/apps


    sudo apt-get update


    sudo apt-get install ddm




    You can alway run ddm& again when you want to check which (and what) driver is being used by your graphics device.

    My graphics card is: 
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) 
    This driver works with my graphics card?

    I would like to see Intel always support the latest and greatest Ubuntu LTS (and thereby their variants) as well as the latest and greatest Fedora Ubuntu versions.

    A year has passed since the purchase of the processor with integrated graphics intel. 
    What's the problem? 
    You are not an official representative of intel? 
    Can you pay the money?
