  Steps to take:  basic ubtuntu 14.04 install.  Boot up and run for a
  few minutes and then ...

  What happens: After running for a few minutes the graphics gets

  What should happen:  Graphics should not get flaky.

  I have just installed ubuntu 14.04 on my new thinkpad t450s.
  Everything basically works, but something is very flaky about my
  keyboard or display or both.  After running for awhile some apps
  (E.g., thunderbird and sometimes emacs for example) will display
  garbage.  If I refresh by moving the screen around or changing
  buffers/tabs/etc. they can often recover.

  I see that there is an [Intel(R) Graphics Installer for Linux*
  installer-linux-1.0.7). I am leery about just loading this and running
  it.  Any suggestions about how I should proceed?
