I'm suffering from this bug:

Does anyone know how to fix this from reading the comments on the bug? There is a proposed workaround but I don't know how to compile things from source which you need to do to get the latest intel-gpu-tools. I thought it might be enough to install the latest Mesa package but how do I that without adding all the extra content from xorg-edgers ppa? I want just the updated Mesa package but not the rest of the new content which the ppa will provide on a system update (which has broken many people's systems).

Thank you for your time!

You can always download the packages individually and install them on your system.

Here is the link for the latest build for i386, and the link for the amd64 build.

The way to download files individually is to visit the PPA, click on View package details, select a package that you might be interested on downloading and the maintained builds will show allowing you to download the created package from that build.
