    Is there a PPA for Ubuntu 14.04 with this?
    (I don't want to mess with a manual install)

    you can try --buildpkg method. download driver extract, chmod +x *.run and then

    ./amd-driver-installer-*-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/trusty
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb
    sudo apt-get install -f

    Used to work most of the time when I had the GT725(4850 mobility) w/Ubuntu unless the install scripts were borked which happened from time-to-time...

    caveat IIRC it produces 4 packages(maybe 3) and they need to be installed in a certain order which I think is listed in the docs, but it doesn't take much to figure it out o.w. then just sudo dpkg -i them
    MSI GT725-074US:
    Intel Core 2 Duo P8600, 4GB DDR2-800, 320GB 7200RPM WDC WD3200BEKT-22F3T0, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3, 8x Super multi DVD+/-RW, 1680x1050 (17"), 9 cell battery

    Ubuntu 8.10 x86-64 (current updates) catalyst 9.3
    Windows Vista Home Premium 32b SP1 (current update) still on shipped catalyst(8.12 I think, MSI packed -- lazy)

    If you're using Ubuntu - or of derivatives such as Kubuntu, I invite you to www.netext73.pl. As part of our program NeteXt'73 optimizes, adapts and publish include packs with the latest drivers from AMD and Nvidia.

    Catalyst 14.4 RC

    Today probably I share the drivers 'stable' Catalyst 14.4. Of course, all drivers are designed to work with Linux kernels 3.14.x including [here's my line of kernels v29.x].

    Catalyst 14.4 RC + kernel v29.3-3.14.1-brazos [testing line]

    I can confirm that L4D2 works fine with Catalyst 14.4 (hovewer I tested it on RC version) and Radeon R7 (A10-7850k + 1600MHz RAM).

    openSUSE 13.1 64 bit.
    I just installed the latest catalyst driver.

    ( command line, become root, start the driver package, build a distro specific rpm.
    Opened the rpm with apper, and then apper got me an extra file. )

    After a reboot I started Left For Dead2. Finally this game runs smooth.
    HD5750

    The sound however is not working.

    When trying two other games, Portal 2 and Hal Life 2, sound was working fine.

    Not yet, but I recommend just downloading and installing the package, because fglrx though the repos don't work at the moment with 14.04.

    I can say that 14.4 from AMD site installs fine with ubuntu 14.04. But I had a couple of compiz crashes. So it's not working 100% bug free.
