    Default Updated graphics drivers for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise LTS

    Hello,

    my launchpad PPA graphics-drivers provides daily updated xorg DDX, dri, glamor, firmwares & mesa packages for Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.04.4. Packages are compiled automatically from launchpad cloned git repos via launchpad build recies. Process is fully automatic and packages are built every day. My PPA should provide similar what oibaf's graphics-drivers. So for those who still using supported 12.04 LTS version of Ubuntu there is easy way how to update & boost graphics support.

    If you have some suggestion or if in my PPA something missing let me know.

    Both packages are for Ubuntu 12.04.0. For updated HW stack in Ubuntu 12.04.4 you need to install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-saucy:i386 and libgl1-mesa-dri-lts-saucy:i386

    I'm actually on elementary os and it was a fresh install, so i installed steam after adding your ppa.
    Then i tried to ppa-purge the ppa but there were some errors about "luna", i guess it expected "precise" or something.
    Anyway i reinstalled elementary os, installed steam and then added the ppa and all works fine now.
