Howto: Fix an Acer Aspire 1410 Netbook Graphics

Recently my brother decided to give Linux a try, I pointed him at Linux Mint 14 (Cinnamon flavoured).  He found it simple and perfect for his needs but the graphics were hopelessly slow and major problem.  The Intel 4500MHD graphics were awful using the Gallium driver it had defaulted to.

A quick Google wasn't entirely helpful until I found :

   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
   sudo apt-get update
     sudo apt-get upgrade
A quick reboot and the graphics performance was very much improved.
