Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 With Lucid?
May 29, 2010
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a PC with the integrated Radeon X200 card. Currently, I have the free Radeon drivers, but they're either awful or aren't working properly. I get some wonky graphics errors, and any 3D game crashes as soon as the 3D graphics are to be displayed.
My card is no longer supported by fglrx. What can I do?
i installed kubuntu 9.04 yesterday and updated it with everything that was available, i have ati radeon xpress 1100 and i got everything running fine including kwin effects but i have a small problem i cant figure out how to fix:
When i run glxgears and put any window on top of it, i can still see the 3d gears rolling and i think this same problem is responsible for occasional artifacts on the screen. Its a very minor problem but i would like to see if fixed because i cannot use google earth properly, it seems that any 3d application likes to be focused on the screen, its like they flicker while being overlaid on top of everything.
Also i read the countless threads here complaining about not being able to use fglrx etc because of updated xorg. Well the reason im using 9.04 is because my wireless card alfa awus036h does not work with kernel > 2.6.31 and i have already tried kubuntu 9.10 on this laptop i wasnt having any problem with the display. All the kwin effects ran fine and no distortions of any kind. Seems there is some bug in 9.04.
I have an Aspire 5100 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 and have been happily running Ubuntu 8.10 until now when support has ended. I continued with 8.10 because the graphics have been fine with my system.I also have 10.10 installed and apart from the graphics, I would have no problem changing/upgrading.The problem is the glare, after a while it is very hard to work on.Is there anything I can do that's not to technical to reduce the glare.
I have been using Debian for a few weeks now (love it, besides it being a little bulky). and have everything going besides wireless and my graphics card, the former being less important to me. I haven't had any problems running Debian without a graphics card, but I know I will need it to play games, configure a 3d desktop if I choose, etc...
I have a problem with my video card since I installed Ubuntu Maverick. Compiz is working, I have Desktop effects and everything but.. i have a lot of troubles too. I can't watch full size video in ..... (it's very slow or totally freezing every time i try fullscreen option). Google Earth working, but when zoomed too much (to see map closer), i am seeing a lot of lines and strange pixels.
Everything was working good on CentOS, but after getting into Ubuntu.. something went wrong. I think the problems are coming from the drivers.
I have this drivers installed:
I followed this guide - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver - for installing everything again, and I also added the Xorg Edgers PPA [url]. When I have xserver-xorg-video-radeon & ati drivers installed, my system have all the problems listed above and don't have 3d acceleration (which I need a lot for running Cedega and VMWare).
This is output from glxgears (while having the drivers installed)
And this is glxinfo in verbose mode:
(notice I have Direct Rendering, but not 3d acceleration, since it have troubles with the driver.. but the file is in the same folder it's searching for it)
When I remove them from the system (purge), and I use only the Edgers PPA and:
I can watch full size video at ....., my computer hibernates and wakes up after (which is causing a lot of problems if I'm using the xorg-ati & radeon, laptop freezes requiring hard restart). I can use Google Earth without having troubles, but.. still can't run Cedega and VM, because I don't pass the tests for 3d acceleration.
This is output of my glxgears & glxinfo (in verbose) after removing the drivers and restarting X.
I can usually solve this type of problem myself, but this time around I'm totally stumped. Can anyone lend a hand? A little background: I have an HP Pavilion ZV6233NR with no screen installed, connected through the VGA to my LCD TV. This is a somewhat older desktop replacement laptop. I have repurposed it to run as both a server and a media center (e.g. it connects to my TV). I'm upgrading from Debian Etch to Debian Squeeze (never installed Lenny). With Etch, I used the proprietary fglrx driver, however the fglrx package in Squeeze doesn't support such old hardware (obviously), but the new foss radeon driver does.
The problem: First, suppose I run X with no arguments, the (EE) and (WW) lines in /var/log/Xorg.0.log read (excluding missing font files):
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa (WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev (EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
I've attached the full Xorg.0.log for that second case (radeon driver using the conf file), in case that helps. Three things I've tried (but for all I know bungled, test me if you think I might have):Fresh installation from the CD. (In case I had left over fglrx stuff lying around.) Horizontal and vertical refresh rates for the screen (although I didn't actually look them up in the LCD screen's manual). Setting modes in the screen section to restrict the resolution and/or color depth.
i'm running Kubuntu 10.04 with KDE4.5 on HP DV5000 and i have problems with the video drivers as usable look where is the problem
LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo name of display: :0.0 libGL: XF86DRIGetClientDriverName: 5.3.0 r300 (screen 0) libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/tls/r300_dri.so libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so

I'm still having problems with firefox 3.5 on Fedora 11. My computer freezes; and it takes a power-off reset to unlock it. Keyboard and display are unresponsive (x-server crash). It crashes even with Firefox 3.5 running in safe mode.
Koji was used to update kernel and firefox. Thanks to wangmaster and other members, I was able to install Firefox 3.0.12, which is run using a different profile. Do I need a debug version of Firefox for a dump? Do I need to send this AMD machine to the landfill or North Carolina?
i have this video card 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200M] IT suspends but it looks on resume with the opensource radeon driver. It never worked with the open source driver for me. It worked with the proprietary driver but those drivers are no longer compatible with the new xorg(catalyst/fglrx worked in ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 but no high1er and in debian lenny) My question is:If you have this card and manage to make it resume on a recent distribution please tell me if you did something to make it work or it just worked.
P.S I do not use xorg.conf and i have only open source driver installed,currently i have a ubuntu and a kubuntu installed on this laptop, i did not tried any fix in the present because i tried them before so thuis operating systems are clean(nothing wrong with the libs or configs)
I've got an older HP Pavilion dv8000 laptop with ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955 video. This worked fine out-of-the-box with 13.1. With 13.37 I can't get KDE desktop effects to work, glxgears reports about 50 fps, and the system can suspend but not resume. I have no xorg.conf at all. Here is the glxinfo and current Xorg log. Just to note, this is with Slackware64 13.37 with the multilib stuff installed.
I've found that whenever I play a 3D game on Ubuntu, the graphics go crazy and make the game unplayable. I've found this an various games such as SuperTuxKart and Alien Arena.By the way, I'm running an ATi Radeon Xpress 200 (integrated graphics) with the default Ubuntu drivers.
Alright, Lenny has a working "fglrx-driver" package for my laptop, but Squeeze does not. Would it be possible to install the one from Lenny on Squeeze since Squeeze has newer libraries and such? I know I can't install new stuff with older libraries, but can I install the old stuff with newer libraries? I am at the end of my rope here! I mean ATI sucks and we all know this, but I've always found a Linux/open-source alternative that worked, until Squeeze.
I have a computer with an integrated graphics card. It is ati radeon xpress 200 series. It have installed OpenSuse 11.1 on my computer with KDE 4.1. I have heard that we have to manually install ati and nvidia drivers. Or can the open source drivers run my card. has the drivers for my card already been installed. Or should i install it manually. I donot have an internet connection on my pc. but i can download the required files from another computer and bring them to my pc.
I have a fresh install of suse 11.0 and there is no 3d acceleration available. If I use the suse repository, which driver do I need to enable 3d accesleration? The video is integrated on the motherboard. The box is an hp pavilion a1130n and amd 3500+ processor. I installed the same suse 11.0 on a dell box with an ati 128 rage and 3d was enabled after the install.
I currently have a Hp NC8430 laptop running 10.04 and this one is amazing and love it, but my video card wont allow me to hook up an external monitor. I can enable compiz, but nothing else. When i install the ATI driver from the website for catalyst it allows the external monitor to work, but now compiz wont work? I dont understand what i am doing wrong and would like if someone could help me. My Video car is a ATI mobility Radeon x1600 and is not supported anymore which sucks so if anyone knows of where to get opensource drivers that would be awesome or a way to set this up. I would hate to have to use another distro, but i need external support.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit and I'm having a problem with the graphics card.
I have dual screens, and I'm using the default card. My Left screen is perfectly normal but my right screen has a black bar, roughly 2cm wide, along the left hand side of it. And that hole screen is shifted to the left 2cm (so if I maximise a window in it you can't see about 2 cm of the right edge).
I'm not sure why this is happening. Worked on Karmic. Haven't installed anything, just the defaults. My graphics card is a Radeon HD 4870.
Also, I couldn't get Compiz to work with this card on Karmic, is it possible to get it to work here on Lucid? I heard they were improving the drivers. If so, how?
I have a ADS Technologies, Inc. DVD Xpress B see here and here. The product is disconitnued and followed by the DX2. Both devices have identical specs and everything. So I was hoping I could get ubuntu to work with it. So I tried using this driver.
It doesn't work so far. I tried changing the device usb info in the source so it includes this older device, but it doesn't work.
I recently upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and was having trouble getting 3D graphics enabled on my ATI card. I am running on an MacPro3,1I read through this guide as I was having errors regarding fglrx so I uninstalled it and as instructed issued the following:
I recently decided to upgrade my old desktop instead of buying a new one. I figured I would go ahead and max out the specs on the motherboard while I was at it. I had a standard AGP slot and the best graphics card I could find for AGP was the Radeon HD 4650 (AGP 1GB GDDR2). So I ordered the parts and went on my merry way.I installed the card and did a fresh install of 9.10, hoping to max perform my "new" system. The card was acting kinda fishy on the live boot and I had to reboot a few times before it magically worked. I got installed etc and when I booted it worked, but it turned out performance was painful. When using Firefox the delay when scrolling down the screen was literally unbearable. No problem right, I used the restricted drivers app to go ahead and install the ATI drivers hoping that it would auto-magically fix things.
System booted but once I logged in the screen would just fill with freezing and garbage so it was impossible to get anything done. I experimented with all three options but this is what ended up being my solution. Download your ATI driver using this site: AMD Graphics Drivers & Software Just select Linux in the OS Select column.
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 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 am a total beginner to ubuntu. I have installed ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition with a CD on my laptop as only OS. So far (three weeks) ubuntu has convinced me. However, my screen starts flickering regularly after a while (even when the computer is idle) and the only solution so far has been to suspend/shut down. The flickering makes the computer unusable and doesn't stop if not shut down/suspended. Beside this issue the graphic seems to work fine.
My Computer is an ASUS F3J, the video card is a ATI Radeon X1700. 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M66-P [Mobility Radeon X1700] this is the xorg0.log:
Code: X.Org X Server 1.7.6 Release Date: 2010-03-17 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.24-27-server i686 Ubuntu
I have been just pretty much having fun with Ubuntu and a couple other distros for a couple years and have not yet ran into a problem like this. I'm pretty good in a command line environment although I end up googling syntax a lot b/c of that wonderful memory I have! Anyways..
I am running an older machine: P4P800 ASUS Mobo, P4 2 Ghz, 3G RAM and an ATI Radeon 9000.OS: Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Issues: Seems that anything that Compiz has to render the brightness is really low. CairoDock (w/ OpenGL) does not render like it does on other machines that I have, looks like garbage. I've come to the conclusion that I need to get a better video driver (Hope I'm correct here otherwise I've been going the wrong direction for awhile now).
Things I've tried through research around the net: I've attempted installing fglrx(command line style) from several tutorials I've found here and there. Most of them for older versions of Ubuntu and if I'm remembering right there have been a few significant changes lately, which may be causing my issues? Of course I've tried the easy ways: Installed all fglrx/ati/radeon related packages in Synaptics Package Manager Checked System > Admin. > Additional Drivers before and after package installations Ati Website - the drivers that they have are for XFree86. I don't think they can run on XOrg - it's a completely different setup? Again, I don't have a great understanding on how the back end of all this works, so bear with em.
I ran: echo options radeon modeset=0 > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf To disable KMS. Rebooted - Video was much worse I then ran: echo options radeon modeset=1 > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf To re-enable KMS Rebooted again. Everything ran fine but I didn't have my Cairo Dock > which I can deal with, that's not why I'm posting.. Well, that's a good chunk of it - there's more but I don't remember most of it as I've been working at this on and off for weeks. Again, a lot of this was tried upon researching anything and everything I could find on the net - so some of it might sound ridiculous, I was just trying anything that would work!!
ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.30.3 from the documentation seems to support this card.
