Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Tearing Ati Radeon Hd 5750?

Jan 6, 2011

I realize this is a subject that has likely been brought up before, but I haven't come across a solution as of yet.

I am able to fix the video tearing via these instructions: [URL]

but as soon as I restart the machine, the video tearing is back. Is there a way to fix it completely?

or, failing that, could a script be written to automate this so it runs on startup each time?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon 5750 Drivers?

Apr 18, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Driver And Radeon 5750

May 13, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AVI Video Playback Tearing?

Oct 23, 2010

I'm sorry if this was asked before (i know it was but never worked for me) 2 days ago I installed ubuntu 10.10, my very first linux OS and I immediately fell in love with it.The only problem now, is tearing during video playback (I'm a perfectionist with a thing for fine details, so this is literally killing me)

I have nVidia 9200M GS (HP laptop)
I've set nVidia setting to sync vblank and disabled it in compiz
I've also disabled PowerMizer..

I love the system to give up some vsync issues in moving windows, but i just can't get over video tearing. I'm ready to install anything, change anything, even do a new clean install to get it working. UPDATE: Installed SMPlayer, works fine but drops couple of frames every 5 secs or so (more annoying than tearing lol) is there any specific settings that can fix that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fullscreen Video Causes Screen Tearing?

May 2, 2010

Vsync works normally, but when I try to watch video in fullscreen (be it ....., VLC or mplayer), the vsync just doesn't work and the screen tearing is terrible. I'm using the nvidia-nonfree 195.36.15 drivers (installed through the hardware drivers), on an nvidia geforce 8800 GTS 512 card.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Tearing And Choppy Video W/ ION 330 Vdpau In Xinerama

Aug 24, 2010

I have a ASRock ION 330 with 512 Mbyte shared graphics memory. I use the 256.44 closed source nvidia drivers and have a Xinerama display consisting of one Asus 1440x900 monitor and one video projector with displaysize of 1280x720. Display: 1440x900 + 1280x720 in Xinerama

I have tried with and without desktop effects enabled, and I have followed the http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2009/0...thout-tearing/ guide to manually set the refresh rate to 60 Hz. The sync to Vblank option is checked, both in CCSM and nvidia-settings under X Server Xvideo Settings and under OpenGL Settings, to no avail.

The files I play are MPEG-2 Transport Stream in 720p. Some are and some are not in Matroska containers. I use SMplayer with vdpau enabled. I've made a comparison of Windows Vista and Ubuntu 10.04 below:[URL].. It's not entirely clear from the video, but the end scroller is choppy on Ubuntu and relatively smooth in Windows Vista.

This setup is to be run in a public cinema, and the chopping and tearing is a complete showstopper. It would be a nice showcase to have Ubuntu in the wild like this, but it can't be used if these issues are not resolved.

Ubuntu :: 64 Bit 10.04 On Radeon HD 5750 - Display Fails During Installation

Aug 31, 2010

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?

Fedora Installation :: GPU (Radeon 5750) Running At 69C Idle And Fan At Full Speed

Aug 19, 2011

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 got heavy video tearing on both my Ubuntu desktop and laptop computers. The desktop has an nvidia video card and the laptop an ati radeon. I tried all tips I could find in google and no luck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Drivers ATI Radeon X1200?

Feb 6, 2011

I am trying to install video drivers for the ATI radeon x1200 card on my laptop.

1. Download and install from AMD catalyst = fail. keep getting error 454 Bad Substitution.

2. Try "Additional Drivers" = nothing here.

3. Try "Synaptic Package Manager" search "fglrx" find one that looks right, let it install dependencies = fail. (maybe this is where I should be?)

4. Try this guide, however its a bit outdated. Get stuck on the repositories .deb files.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon X1250 - Can't Play Video Or Games

Jan 17, 2011

When I don't install the packages for my ATI graphic cards (xserver-xorg-video-radeon, xserver-xorg-video-ati and radeontool), everything looks fine while my laptop boots and my desktop looks fine when the boot ends. Except that i can't look video or play games cuz it lags too much...which is normal. When I install the packages for my graphic card (xserver-xorg-video-radeon, xserver-xorg-video-ati et radeontool), I can play games, watch videos, but I notice this: when my laptop boot, just before the login screen, I get messy graphic problems...Looks like a broken old tv. Once I login, my background image is covered with white stripes...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Radeon X1300 Hardware Video Acceleration Under ?

Jun 7, 2011

I was looking at purchasing a radeon x1300 for a multimedia pc for my lounge and was wondering if anyone knew whether hardware video acceleration with this card was supported with ubuntu? I read that on the ati website that it does support mpeg2,4, etc video acceleration,but didn't know if this was so for ubuntu. I have a few bluray quality movies that I would be interested in playing, so hardware video acceleration is a must.

This work and I was able to use my tv as a monitor however when I try to play a video file from totem or vlc all I could get was audio with no video; These files work and played fine in the CRT monitor.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Major Tearing In 10.10 With ATI

Nov 19, 2010

I've always had kind of an issue with tearing in Ubuntu but today I got round to updating to 10.10 64 bit, and decided to try and do something about the tearing. I followed this [URL] to the word except on the line "sudo aticonfig -initial" where I had to use "sudo aticonfig --initial" for the xorg.conf to regenerate. It worked great to start with but after a reboot the tearing got terrible. The tearing I used to experience was multiple tearing lines at random heights that appeared momentarily and could only really be noticed in fast moving scenes of films or games.

Now I get just one tear line which starts at the bottom of my monitor and slowly moves up to the top of the monitor over a period of about 10-15 seconds. Once it gets to the top it re-appears at the bottom and starts again, and the refresh difference on either side of the tear is at about 0.5 seconds it makes videos pretty much unwatchable. My graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 8500, and the AA on it supports up to x8 sampling where as the tutorial only says to go up to x4 (I am unsure if this is because x4 is the max for most cards or because for some reason mid settings are better) but both seem to get the same result. Also I'm using the proprietary ATI drivers and Catalyst Control.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Frame Tearing On 11.3?

Jul 20, 2010

I am getting frame tearing on my tv when I play videos using mplayer. I get no tearing when I play it on my primary monitor. I didnt have this problem with 11.2
I am using a nvidia 9500gt, I have a crt monitor and my hdtv hooked up to it. The tv is connected by hdmi. I am running 11.3 with nvidia driver from the site,and kde 4.4.93. Also it should be noted that the tearing happened as well in kde 4.4.4 that was default. Disabling compositing makes no difference. In nvidia setting opengl is set to sync to vblank, and x server xvideo settings is set to sync to the tv (although it wont save that setting) and still with the tearing.

my xorg.conf
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 256.35 (buildmeister@builder97.nvidia.com) Wed Jun 16 19:14:45 PDT 2010

And when I go to alsamixer, the nvidia card displayed there is different than what I have (It says GT220).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Tearing After Resolution Change?

May 15, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, my screen resolution was reset to 1024x768. As the native resolution for my monitor is 1920x1080, I went to reset that. The resolution didn't exist in the Monitors applications, so I did the following:

kane@Griffin:~$ cvt 1920 1080 60
# 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz
Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync


The monitor adjust, but most of the screen shows tearing and doesn't update correctly. Hard to explain, so I attached a screenshot at 1024x768, working normally, and 1920x1080, fubar. I've cropped these images to get them to fit the forum limitations, but they still show the issue.

My monitor is an LG Flatron W2253TQ, my graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 4650, although the manufacturer is Biostar. I'm using the default free drivers.

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Antialiasing Causes Tearing?

Jun 25, 2011

I enabled Antialiasing in nvidia-settings and added "nvidia-settings -l" in a file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/, i knew it worked because sync to vblank works with glxgears and stuff. I enabled 4x antialiasing, allow flipping and texture sharpening in nvidia settings, i also enabled all instances of sync to vblank in nvidia-settings i disabled dynamic twinview i also enabled sync to vblank in ccsm and manually set the refresh rate to 60hz the cube is smoother now, but when i move windows around, i get slight tearing at the edges, when i disable AA and restart compiz, the tearing goes away. There is no tearing when i move windows vertically: It only happens when i move horizontally:

Debian stable 2.6.32-5 amd64
nvidia-glx 195.36.31-6 0
nvidia GT 230M

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Maverick Meerkat - ATI X9150 Pro - No Hardware Acceleration And Page Tearing

Oct 19, 2010

Running Meerkat 10.10 with an ATI X1950 PRO, and with no visual enhancements I get page tearing on minimising windows and things like that.

If I turn on even basic visual effects, then Maverick slows down and becomes quite unresponsive. There are noticeably long delays between closing windows or clicking on a menu etc.

Is this because the open source ATI driver does not support hardware acceleration on my X1950 yet?

Is there any hope for me? Recent versions of Ubuntu seems to have taken a step back in that respect. I remember 8.04 worked really well!

Hardware :: Configure Radeon Video Card ?

Dec 15, 2010

I have installed a 9200 Radeon (the card says 9250 on it, but computer reads as 9200) on a AMD Sempron 2500+ 64 bit,Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome 2.30.2, Kernel Linux 2.6.32-26; Samsung VGA 941BW monitor.

A friend told me if I added more RAM (512mb), the card would run properly & the graphics would be stellar.

He also told me the drivers were installed.

When I did this & started the computer, before I got to my login, a box appeared, telling me my graphics were running in "Low Mode", & do I want to configure them. When I said "Yes", it told me to restart. When I did, nothing happened & the video card is still running on "low". I checked the fglrx info, and was told "command not found".
