I installed Lucid when I had my Nvidia board in the computer. Yesterday I pulled out the nvidia board and installed my new Radeon 5750. Hearing that the Open Source driver is the way to go, I first decided to try that. I edited xorg.conf replacing "nvidia" with "radeon", since this is the module name (right?) but it still doesn't seem to load. Does anyone have an example of what a properly configured xorg.conf is supposed to look like using the ATI Open Source driver? I get X up and running in "low graphics mode", but can never get beyond that.
Trying to turn on window effects causes a "searching for drivers" dialogue to appear and then disappear without success. A quick "glxinfo |grep -i render" indicates that it is indeed in the software mode. I even tried to manually modprobe the radeon module and restart GDM, but still nothing. At first I thought this was a limitation of the Open Source drivers on 5xxx series boards, but this page suggests that it should work in "gold" status. I have since installed FGLX and it is just terribly buggy, so I am hoping to use the Open Source driver.
I just installed Ubuntu 64 bit (I had 32 bit before) and I want to get my graphics card working. I have an ATI Radeon 5750 hd card. I tried to use the proprietary drivers from "hardware drivers" but I get a watermark in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and the resolution is terrible. Also, the whole screen seems to be vibrating, which kills the eyes, so I got rid of that driver.
I also tried to download and install the driver from ATI website [URL]... but ubuntu couldn't open the pakage. I gave me some error message about the "encoding text" or something like that. So how (if it's possible) do I get my video card working so that I can use compiz and run 1080 resolution? I have been through tons of threads but none of them helped my any.
I just finished building my new machine. I've got windows 7 running just fine on it, but I wanted to dual boot Ubuntu 10.04. I downloaded the 64 bit iso and tried installing it from both a live cd and a usb drive. When I boot from either (cd or usb), I see the Ubuntu loading/boot screen, but after the data is loaded, my display goes black and seems not to be able to find a signal. I assumed initially that it was probably due to the fact that I was connecting to my tv by HDMI cable. I guessed that Ubuntu did not have HDMI drivers for my video card, ATI Radeon HD 5750, by default. Then today, my new monitor arrived and I switched to the DVI output on my video card. I assumed that this would allow me to boot and install. I was wrong. I experienced the same symptoms on my monitor via DVI as I did on my TV via HDMI. why my monitor drops the signal as soon as it leaves the loading/boot screen?
I'm fairly new to fedora. I used Fedora 14 on a virtual machine just to mess around with it a little while back but thats about it. As far as linux goes, I just test a bunch but can never seem to pull myself away from windows. I am hoping this is the time but these issues are the weirdest I've seen on any linux distro ever. My GPU (Radeon 5750) is running at 69C idle and the fan is at full speed. I am not overclocking it at all and I'm using the default drivers that came with fedora. It works just fine in windows and a lot cooler. How can I fix this?
I'm running the Gnome 3 desktop version, which I am also getting some graphics artifacts. In the bottom bar I get a dashed white line that comes up every time I boot and goes away when I make the bar expand. Also in the applications window I get the same dashed line at the top of the window and sometimes the top of the scroll bar. So far I really like Gnome 3 (Idk why everyone is whining about it) and I'd like to stick with Fedora, and linux for that matter
I have a problem with my graphic card. My desktop effects and compiz work fine, but I cant find xorg.conf file (it seems I dont have a driver installed??). I want to play games, but I cant (warsow, and other via wine).. my computer cant start a game.
I know it's an old video card, but it worked just fine on Lucid after going through the following process:
HTML Code: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1578070 Unfortunately, after installing 10.10, I hadn't been able to enable desktop effects. I've been backwards and forwards through HTML Code: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver
I'm having some graphics driver trouble on my Lenovo Thinkpad T500. I tried getting the ATI Proprietary driver to work (fglrx) but everytime I boot my X just crashes. Now I'm trying to use the open source driver, but i dont think its working becaues a) It doesn't detect that an external monitor is plugged in (for dual-view) and b) when i run glxinfo i get a "Error of failed request: BadRequest" message.
I (somewhat foolishly) decided to reformat windows XP and make my foray in the Ubuntu world with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid just last week. It has treated me fairly well so far and with the help of others posts have been able to get most everything setup to my liking. However...My Problem:I tried to install the ATI drivers for my radeon 9700 using ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.run. I tried to install it using the Ubuntu/9.04 settings, hoping that I could get it to work like that and I was quite wrong. When I restarted my computer I was started in simple graphics mode, and now I'm trying to set things right again.'ve un-installed the fglrx drivers (I think...) and now I'm stuck. Play On Linux tells me that I need to install 3D acceleration, something I know my graphics card has..
I just upgraded my rig from a 4770 to a 5770 video card.
My 4770 had basic 3d support out of the box with the open source radeon driver. My 5770 doesn't seem to (basic rendering only with no compositing), although this page suggests it does:
Is there anyone out there who is running a 5770 or knows how I can upgrade to a newer version of the open source driver? I'd rather not use catalyst (Id don't game with ubuntu) and I found the open source driver to be quite nice.
I have ATI Radeon HD 5650 (code name Redwood) on Ubuntu 11.04. And I have been experimenting with open-source and proprietary driver.
The problem with proprietary driver is bad 2D rendering when watching movies in VLC (and any other), because if vsync is off, video is tearing and when its on, the video seems to stutter (the background moves in steps, not smooth). I have tried open-source radeon driver and its far better, but that driver doesn't have 3D acceleration for playing games. I was trying to play Hive Rise, and with proprietary driver works great, but with open-source the game starts, but i don't see the interface (start game, options, etc.).
It seems that Mesa 7.10 (in Natty) doesn't have 3D support for this card, but Mesa 7.11 (in Oneiric) will have that. Is that correct? I just want to have good 2D performance with ability to play games.
I realize that Canonical is not responsible for the Catalyst driver, but I can't seem to operate outside of the Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode for 64 bit Natty, and I was curius if anyone else had encountered or resolved this.
When I upgraded from 10.10 (I was using the fglrx package), xorg would immediately crash. I was able to reach the gdm screen only using recovery mode. I uninstalled the fglrx package, and now I can boot into Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode only (no other desktop will work) using the open-source driver at no greater than 1280x1024.
When I try to re-install the catalyst driver using aptitude or Administration->Additional Drivers, the installation fails:
(jockey.log: WARNING: modinfo for module fglrx failed: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module fglrx)
Similarly, package generation from the AMD page fails:
I just downloaded ATI Radeon x700 driver from Quote:[URL]..the file name is

I've always had and used Ubuntu. When I installed and did not like the stability of a certain version, I just reformatted the partition and used LiveCD. OK, on a virgin SATA, 300-gig partition, I installed 10.04 and that took the ATI Radeon 3rd-party graphics driver. No problem. Then, the family wanted 2 languages on the machine. The German keyboard screwed me in terminal and I wiped out Home and all their data. I used Scalpel to image-carve 300-gig onto a 400-gig partition and tried to re-install Ubuntu 10.10.
The ATI's fglrx will not install, that's the error. That same file prevents upgrades of Ubuntu to current status.
is this thread current for my problem with 10.10? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=651566
Or, do I have that 400-gig with the backup cross-pollinating?
The last few weeks I have been dual monitoring from my lcd monitor to my hdtv. LCD was connected via vga and my tv via hdmi. To my knowledge, my pc has two graphic cards, both ATI Radeons. One I believe is on the mother board, ATI Radeon 4200HD series, and the other is in a PCI slot ATI Radeon 5600HD series. I think that when I had it dual monitored the tv was connected via 4200HD and LCD via 5600HD (could be wrong).
What I Did: Everything was working fine (i was mainly just using the HDTV as my only monitor and main monitor). As you can guess I was gaming on the hdtv, but I was not satisfied with the slight lag I felt. So I looked at forums to see what I could do and they mostly said 1) change settings on tv to game mode, 2) turn off vsync on your graphics card. So I did #1, but when I tried to do #2 I could not open my graphics cards "menu" aka CCC aka Catalyst Command Center.
So I read up on why this might happen and they said I should uninstall drivers and reinstall the drivers, so I did this as well (with most current drivers from the AMD site, version 10.9) and still I could not get into the CCC. As I was reading more forums, they were saying the 10.8 version mainly has this problem. So what I did was I downloaded 10.7 (did not install yet) and uninstalled the new 10.9. When I went to reboot the cpu after the uninstall of 10.9 there was no display on my HDTV.
I figured I just need to go back to my LCD which was still hooked up to my cpu. No display there as well. I tried dvi and vga hook ups from the monitor to both graphic cards but nothing worked to get me a display. I also tried my girlfriends monitor, which only has vga, to both graphics card and still nothing worked. So at this point I have NO display. After about an hour of trying different combinations of cords, monitors, plugs, tv's etc.,
I RANDOMLY somehow got a display with my girlfriends monitor vga to the 5600 card (I think). I had to hold the vga cord a certain way on attached to the monitor in order for the display to work. So since I had a display, I quickly installed 10.7. After installation, it did not prompt me to reboot (which I thought was weird) so I just went to properties and tried to change the resolution to the max 1600x something, to see how it looks. The screen went blank and the display never reappeared. Now I basically have NO DISPLAY again.
I have the graphic card: ATI Technologies Inc RS482 [Radeon Xpress 200M] and I want to set the driver radeon because when start the ubuntu 9.10 on live cd it's use this driver. Now load the radeonfb but when set on xorg the driver "radeon" while reboot the machine not work. When start gdm the screen becomes black and I need power off and change xorg.
I got given an old (non brand name) laptop and have installed XP and kubuntu 10.04 on it. The graphics card is Radeon Mobility X1600. Kubuntu gets a very strange problem which does not happen in XP:
Although the installation graphics are OK (sort of, there are some strange font irregularities), when it tries to reboot and fire up the graphics all hell breaks loose, the display is broken in two parts and shifted up with the overflowing region coming up from below. I 'm guessing something in the X server is trying to start and failing because when I try to drop to a text terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F<something or other>) I get pages filling up with error messages.
Unfortunately I can't remember what the messages say and I don't want to try to recreate it in a hurry because after this happens, subsequent reboots start the computer in this split screen mode (weirdly omitting the BIOS POST message) and I 'm not sure how to get it fixed, so far removing the battery, reseting the BIOS to default and letting it cool down seem to work, eventually.
Anyway, I figured since XP seems to be fine, it must be a software problem, although I 'm mystified how it persists and jumps between reboots (the split screen persists even all the way to the BIOS menu). I tried getting the driver from the ATI site code...
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.i3fXeb So, if I can't run the ATI driver, my other option is to run whatever it is that the "Hardware Drivers" KDE menu item runs to get it to sniff out the driver I need. But I can't start an X server so I need to either run whatever it is that runs behind it or get the package I need through apt-get?
I am new to Ubuntu for the most part, but have done a lot of research on this OS. I just freshly installed version 10.10 32 bit, and the first thing I did was follow this tutorial on installing the drivers for my HIS Radeon HD 6850. I really want to get this drivers working so I can use the 3D effects on this OS.
When I type fglrxinfo I receive:
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation) Major opcode of failed request: 136 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString) Serial number of failed request: 14 Current serial number in output stream: 14 When I type aticonfig I get:
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected. The proprietary driver was never installed so I know that driver is not interfering. Originally the aticonfig was not found at all but with a little troubleshooting from the link above It seems to work, but obviously not recognize the card. The card works great on my windows 7 setup. If I can't get this working I may just remove Ubuntu all together, but any help would be amazing!
Card is the Radeon x300 and in the past in a wubi install I installed the propreitary ATI driver. I'd like to do that with this installation too. I've located the proper driver and tried to run in the terminal.
I get this error:
I've read were I have to uninstall the xorg drivers and make a .deb package but idk how to do that.
I have a performance issue using the open source radeon driver. I normally would just attribute this to the driver still not ready, but it was working fine on the Mandriva install I just wiped out. I replaced madriva in order to have Qimo sessions for my daughter to use. When I try to run glxgears the gears basically don't move.
I'd installed Puppy and was very happy with the performance on my laptop, but I decided to switch to Debian because of the ap-get feature. I decided to go with JWM instead of one of the default desktop environments, but now I'm having to configure everything manually, and I'm pretty lost. So far, I've got X and JWM installed (though no graphical login, and have to startx manually).
Priority one is to update the video driver and get the best performance possible. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 7500. I know the fglrx driver doesn't work with this card, but I don't know which package to install. When I type "apt-get install radeon", it spits out "E: Couldn't find package radeon"
