Ubuntu :: FGLRX And 10.10 - Some OpenGL Apps Don't Load

Dec 21, 2010

I need to use FGLRX on my laptop, if I don't, either some OpenGL apps don't load, or the performance is poor.. With FGLRX the performance of the app is great and all work..

However, since Ubuntu 10.10, FGLRX no longer has "smooth" video.. And what I mean by that, even a simple DVD is dropping like 50% of it's frames every second with FGLRX. However, if I use the open source ATI driver, there is no video performance problem and even HD video plays fine, but then GL apps become a problem again..

In Ubuntu 10.04 FGLRX didn't have this problem. I did try to upgrade to the latest FGLRX 10.12, and every time I try on Ubuntu 10.10, I result with X not starting at all..

Here's the kicker though, the built in Movie Player with Ubuntu, works fine no matter which driver is used.. Now this wouldn't be an issue for me, but DVD's don't play right in that player, it runs like it's vibrating, but all other video formats work fine..

I'm at a loss. I gave up Linux a few months ago and wanted to try again, but once again, ATI is letting me down, and this is a laptop, buying a new laptop just because of the GPU is out of the question.

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie 64-bit Steam Crashing With AMD Fglrx Drivers

Sep 24, 2015

I recently switched over to Debian 8 "Jessie" (64-bit Cinnamon flavor) on my Desktop.

i7 4790 Processor
AMD Radeon R9 280X

I have been able to play multiple games on Steam without any issues, however I have downloaded Ark: Survival Evolved and am unable to actually play that game in particular. I can log in and get to a point of choosing a server, but after it actually loads to the game(where it starts rendering graphics), the game crashes to the desktop. Below is the readout of the crash from when I loaded Steam via Terminal.

Code: Select all   
    Signal 11 caught.
    ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/lukasz/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.
    ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/lukasz/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.
[Code] ....

I have noticed that the above (zenity:13343): Gtk-WARNING line in terminal is the point at which the game crashes. It would appear that the steam gameoverlayrenderer.so is a separate issue and may be a common occurence in the background that you just don't see.(?)

Things that I have done thus far:

-Verified that the video card is good
-Tried Open-source graphics drivers
-Currently using the AMD 15.9 Proprietary Drivers directly from AMD with Catalyst Control Center.
-Reinstalled "zenity" to ensure that it was not corrupted.
-Verified which Gtk+ versions that I have installed(see below)

Code: Select all   
    lukasz@Lukasz-Desktop:~$ pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0 gtk+-3.0

Is there a "default" gtk+ version that I have to alter for it to recognize that I have Gtk+ 3.0 installed, or did I miss something somewhere?

My hypothesis:

-It has something to do with 32-bit/64-bit conflictions(Maybe the game? My steam is 64-bit)
-My graphics card may not be supported by Ark: Survival Evolved yet.
-I am missing some libraries each time I have attempted different video drivers.
-Something with steam did not get installed correctly(I have not attempted to uninstall and reinstall it, however other games function correctly)

Ubuntu :: Option For OpenGl To Use Restricted Drivers?

May 18, 2010

I have been using EnvyNG for my nvidia 9600 for a few ubuntu versions now, but cant find envy after doing a clean install of lucid. When I installed lucid and added the sources, Envy is not there. Does this mean envy no longer used, or is not updated for lucid?

Is my only option for OpenGl to use restricted drivers? I think the restricted drivers are causing me some grief with compiz & emerald. I frequently lose emerald, & have to reload the windows manager. I rarely saw these issues with karmic or jaunty.

Fedora Hardware :: Get OpenGL Without Nvidia Drivers?

Mar 31, 2010

I tried again (with easylife this time) and I got the same result - once the kmod was finished I just got a cursor - so two tries with two different methods, same result. So, is there a generic type driver that will at least take advantage of some of the features of my geforce 6800?

Fedora :: How To Use The Fglrx Drivers And F12

Nov 23, 2009

It's been a while since I last used the fglrx drivers, especially on my laptop which has an AMD RS690 based video adapter. While the Open Source drivers get the job done most of the time, and especially with Compiz-Fusion (yay!) these drivers still lack much optimization and since they don't intend to optimize the OpenGL stack for the current drivers and instead they'll work on it for the Gallium3D drivers, the situation is not going to get much better any time soon. However the Free drivers have gotten very robust and with very good support all in all.At first I used the fglrx drivers, but went with the Open Drivers for two main reasons:Radeon drivers were the first to get true KMS support, so they fully supported Plymouth.

Fgrlx drivers had (or still have?) a hideous bug in that they would cause screen flicker and tearing all over the place if you had a composited desktop. Wasn't as bad with Metacity's Composer Manager compared to Compiz, but still very annoying. Also they didn't properly had (or still have) RandR 1.2 support which means that if you attach a secondary display, you can't configure it as a different screen at a different resolution (for instance, main laptop display running at native 1280x800 and the secondary screen, like a projector, running at 1024x768), which the Open drivers get most of the time (note this isn't perfect in the open drivers either).

So i wanted to give the fglrx drivers a whirl once again and see how do they run... However I do not fully remember the steps involved in getting Plymouth running with the VGA/VESA console driver and the fglrx drivers (all I can remember is that it involved rebuilding the initrd [which in F12 is initramfs] to leave out the Radeon driver and you could still use the vga=[mode] argument to get Plymouth), the only other thing I can remember is that you had to run plymouth-set-default-theme to get the theme back. The main thing stopping me from going back to fglrx is that I'm not sure if all the composite issues have been resolved.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Remove The Damn Fglrx Drivers

Mar 18, 2011

i'm using ubuntu 10.04 LTS and my GTK is amd radeon HD 6850. yesterday, i ran ubuntu 10.10 with the fglrx offic. drivers properly on my native resolution and with 3D acceleration, though i couldn't run my favorite game minecraft, so i tried to reinstall. by this, i accidentally formated my windows partition, so all i've got now are my live cd's and this installation of 9.10, where i downloaded the official drivers what didn't work, then upgraded to 10.04 LTS and can't remove the damn fglrx drivers. the error i get is: [URL]

how to get this working? i love ubuntu, i hate windows, it isn't an option for me to get back to windows, the only way i want to use it is for steam games [by the way, will there be steam for linux?] like cs:s, tf2, dow2, which i dont play that frequently as minecraft [i play this every day, on my fav server majncraft.cz]

Ubuntu :: Replacing FGLRX With The Open Source ATI Drivers?

Apr 3, 2011

I have an ATI Radeon 4200 HD Mobility, with 256 MB of my RAM dedicated to it. I installed FGLRX, but the performance actually dropped compared to the open source drivers that come installed by default. I removed fglrx, and reinstalled the Radeon packages, but no avail.

Now, when I boot, I get the error, "unable to load module 'fglrx'," and my only option is to run Ubuntu in Safe Graphics Mode. This tells me that the computer is still trying to load FGLRX, and there's something that needs to be altered down at the boot level.

Ubuntu :: ATI Radeon HD 4350 Blurry With Fglrx Drivers

May 16, 2011

I installed the fglrx drivers in Ubuntu Natty for a ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics card. Although compiz seems to work better, everything seems to be a blurry as compared to the generic graphics or while under Windows 7.For example, every other line displayed here while I type is more blurry than the others.I have a dual screen setup.

Ubuntu Installation :: Compiz Crashes All The Time With Non-fglrx Drivers

May 5, 2010

Compiz is utterly unusable, ever since probably about 9.04 or 9.10, when Ubuntu took out the Catalyst drivers for my laptop w/ Mobility Radeon HD 2300 their less capable open-source variants, which crashes after about 15 minutes of use.

The screen gradually becomes less responsive for about 5 seconds, until it just completely freezes and becomes completely unresponsive to any keyboard or mouse commands. I tried using the RadeonHD drivers instead and the problem is still there. The 'Hardware Drivers' app in System > Administration doesn't seem to do detect any fglrx drivers for my system.

How would I get some working fglrx drivers back?

And I don't want to use Metacity anymore.

Ubuntu :: Can't Activate Fglrx Drivers - SystemError: InstallArchives() Failed

Oct 17, 2010

I can't get my fglrx drivers activated, every time I try I get an error message. I first tried going into System-->Administration-->Additional Drivers and activating it their but I get this error message: SystemError: installArchives() failed. I tried using some jockey command (my apologies as I can't quite remember the command) and I got the same error message. I was searching around on google and I someone said to type Code: aticonfig --initial Into a terminal and now my computer is running really slowly and I can't get it to run like normal. My windows scroll down in increments, when I try to move a window it jumps around, I can't handle how slowly this thing is going.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Get OpenGL To Work On Radeon Free Drivers (Jessie)

Apr 1, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie. All the firmware packages are properly installed, and so are the radeon free driver packages.

However, Gallium falls back to llvmpipe, which from what I understand is a software rasterizer and not actually hardware rendering.

Everything works fine except some specific things like KDE's cube animation, which says it can't be enabled because it requires OpenGL.

How do I get Debian to run Gallium properly?

I attached some relevant info...

glxinfo | grep -i opengl

Fedora :: Updated To 15 - And Installed My Fglrx / Catalyst Ati Drivers ?

May 26, 2011

Today I spend the day updating to Fedora 15 (from 14). And by spent the day updating to Fedora 15, I mean that like the last 3 updates I've tried with Fedora, they end up getting hosed and I was forced to rebuild using a live disk. That being said I was able to install a fresh instance of Fedora, as well as use leigh123linux's "F15,F14, F13 & F12 Nvidia driver guides" thread to install the necessary drivers on my machine. However after the last reboot, I'm stuck with a funky top screen.

Debian Configuration :: Install Fglrx Drivers For ATI Card With Testing?

I have been trying to install fglrx drivers for my ATI card with Debian testing (x86) but without any luck. I have tried what it says here http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary but I only come up with a blank screen (and also invoke-rc.d gdm stop does not work either?) I have also followed the directions at [URL]....html and that doesn't work either (make error 127). I must be doing something totally wrong.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Hdmi Not Working With Sharp Tv - Drivers ?

Jan 4, 2011

I cant seem to get my sharp tv connected to my compaq presario cq50. by hdmi

I followed this:

1. I connected the HDMI cable to my laptop with the TV already on (my laptop was on too).

2. Went to NVIDIA X Server Settings, then to X Server Display Configuration and on the Display Tab I chose my TV (Samsung) as the "model", then configure it so that the TwinView mode was switched on, then I changed the resolution to 1920x1080, position: absolute and then I checked the box "Make this the primary display for the X server" (I guess this is what I was missing in the first place).

3. Clicked on Apply and then my TV started to show what I was doing on my laptop.

My computers reading the tv but when i click apply its still blank and i lose my mouse and boarders on my computer

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Not Working With NVidia ION Drivers

Jun 4, 2010

I have a zotac IONITX motherboard with HDMI video. The video seems fine, but I haven't been able to get the sound working through the HDMI cable. Even the little speaker at the top is gone. It was working fine when I had speakers hooked to the motherboard. I have installed the latest 256 driver from nvidia. If I run 'aplay -l' I get this:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
lspci -v gives :

Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

I don't know if this is important, but I noticed that it says its running an intel driver for my nvidia sound. Could this be the problem and if so, How do I fix it? Also, if I click on system->preferences->sound it comes up with a dialog box that says that its waiting for the sound system to come up. Why I am not getting any HDMI sound or even the little speaker icon at the top?

Fedora :: Wine/opengl/32 To 64 Bit - Cannot Load OpenGL When Try To Start WoW

Oct 19, 2009

I just upgraded from FC8 (32-bit) to FC11 (64-bit). In doing so, I backed up my entire World of Warcraft folder so I could try to avoid having to download and install it all over again. However, I've now reinstalled wine (64-bit now), and the nvidia drivers from the rpmfusion repos (also 64-bit), and when I try to start WoW, it says it cannot load OpenGL. I'm wondering if anyone knows what's up, and if there's a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling WoW.

Fedora :: Checking If OpenGL Is Working?

May 31, 2010

I'm trying to get a program to compile with OpenGL support and it's saying that the headers are missing. But I think (or thought!) that I already had Open GL up and running. My suspicion is that I need to install the appropriate -devel files...but I just can't seem to find them. Furthermore, I don't want to tweak my system and install proprietary Nvidia drivers if things are already working just fine.

I have a Geforce 8300 GS in a i586 32bit Dell Inspiron 530. I'm trying to compile Cinelarra and keep getting:


OpenGL 2.0 libraries missing Hardware acceleration using OpenGL 2.0 is disabled

Does anyone know which driver (ie: 96xx? 173xx?) I should be using for this? Where are these libraries? How can I find them and tell Cinelarra where to look?

And even more basically: How do I tell if OpenGL is working or not? Maybe I don't have them afterall..
