Ubuntu Multimedia :: Uninstall The Old Drivers First Before To Install The New One?

Oct 29, 2010

ok so i have a clevo x8100 laptop with two 5780's in crossfire. Im not exactly sure where to check in linux but i remember im using the fglrx drivers...which from what i understand are the crappy "safe" drivers. I've downloaded the latest linux x64 drivers for the card...

do i need to uninstall the old drivers first before i attempt to install the new one? also, if i do need to uninstall the old one, do i need to disable all my compiz special effects too? I could just see that creating a problem. im afraid im ruining my ubuntu install now that i've got everything configured the way i want minus the video drivers.

Ubuntu :: How To Create Disk Image And Uninstall Drivers

Aug 27, 2010

Basically, I want to be able to create the perfect disk image of a CLEAN Ubuntu installed in a 30 gb partition. The problem is, if I install Ubuntu, then some drivers are installed automatically. I am using an old computer at the moment (my main is back at home) and I want to be able to create an image so that when I restore that image onto my main computer, it is not cluttered with drivers of the old computer. Is there a method that can be used for uninstalling drivers?

I am looking for the cleanest way to uninstall drivers, hopefully to the point where it will not leave any "residue" That is my first question. My second question (in general about disk image--I have never actually created nor restored an image): Can I create an image of partition A and restore the image on partition B? Basically, creating an image of one partition and restoring it on another partition. Or does it have to be restored on the original partition?

Also, what if it is the same scenario but partition B is a larger size? I know that if partition B is smaller, it cannot be done because the image is larger than the partition. Finally, can partition A be restored onto a different hard drive? I have yet to find answers of these questions on different forums in other sites (this is my 3rd try). I know that the Ubuntu community is extremely active and more than willing to share their knowledge.

Ubuntu :: Uninstall ATI Drivers And Reinstall Original Files

Jun 12, 2011

I am running a recently installed minimal install. I am having some fun building the system up but trying to keep things slim. I have installed the ATI catalyst drivers working from the tutorial here under 'Installing the Restricted Drivers Manually': [URL]... After successfully getting the ATI driver running, I realise I really don't need or want it and am wanting to uninstall it completely and return the config to the way it was. Some of that I can do with the aid of some of the links I have found but installing the ATI drivers no doubt killed some of the packages that were there in the first place (graphics was fine in the first place incidentally). Question: What might these squashed packages be so I can reinstall them and have graphics setup as it was before I installed the ATI drivers and how can I remove all trace of the ATI drivers?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Set Nvidia Drivers - Dual Monitor Without Proprietary Drivers?

Apr 8, 2010

I have been using ubuntu for quite a long time, and for the first time, I am now unable to set nvidia drivers to work. I have just install ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on an AMD 64 athlong X2 with a GEForce 6500 nvidia card.

The only reason I need the proprietary drivers is to use two monitors.

I am going crazy, I have tested everything I have found on the web. I have tried all the nvidia drivers version, I have tried envyng, ... but nvidia do not work!!

I am trying Xinerama with nv, but it does not work either!!!

Here is my xorg.conf file in which I have tried to use nv driver to set dual monitor. X fails to load and it says that screen 0 is deleted, that devices are found but there are no matches in the config file. Any clue?

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"

Ubuntu :: Hardware Drivers Not Appearing In Its Drivers GUI - 9.10 Beta / Solves This?

Oct 24, 2009

I just installed Karmic beta and I'm having issues with getting my wireless driver to work. When I was using 9.04 and when I booted 9.10 from a CD, I could just go to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers and activate a wireless driver and everything would be just peachy. The problem is that, in the install of 9.10 beta, no drivers appear when I load the Hardware Drivers GUI, so I can't get wireless internet.

Is there anything I can do besides wait a few days for the full release of 9.10 and hope that solves the issue?

Ubuntu :: Wireless Does Not Work + Printer Drivers So Buggy + MP3 Players And Digital Cameras Not Work?

Jul 7, 2010

I wanted some input on chronic problems with Ubuntu:

1. Why does wireless almost never work right on Ubuntu?

2. Why, when Ubuntu just decides to turn off my wireless card, can I not just turn it back on?

3. Why do tar balls almost never unpack right?

4. Why are printer drivers so buggy?

5. Why do my MP3 players and digital cameras not work with Ubuntu?

I spent 3 hours last night trying to unpack a tar.bz2 file so I can run my Ralink network card. It worked fine until my son unplugged my computer. Now my card is disconnected and it will not reconnect. When I check forums no one has a simple answer for something as simple as turning a network card back on. On my Apple, it's simple: click my wireless icon and hit "on." tell me an easy way to just turn my wireless card back on, it would renew my faith a little in Linux.

Ubuntu :: Getting The ATI Drivers To Work

May 27, 2011

just installed ubuntu a couple nights ago. Trying to learn the ropes, but I've been stumped by these problems with ATI video card drivers. ubuntu gave me a notification that there were proprietary drivers available, but I was not able to install them. i got some kind of system archive failed error. so i tried downloading the linux drivers from the ATI website but those wouldn't even run. i have a feeling there's something i need to be doing that i am unaware of.also another quick question. while getting utorrent i found that i need to have this application called 'wine' to install it, correct? do i need to do anything special with wine or can i just run the .exe file for utorrent once i have wine?

Ubuntu :: Ati Graphics Drivers Don't Appear To Work?

Aug 18, 2010

While trying live usb versions of different gnome and kde distributions, i noticed very unusable performance, however since i read that live media versions of linux did not perform well, i merely assumed that was the reason.

The sad thing is though, i installed ubuntu 10.4 x64 and i am still having the same problems. The only way to get the system slightly usable is to completely disable desktop effects. However, even then, it sort of feels like windows xp before you have installed graphics drivers - like it's not using the hardware at all.

Even the little fish screensaver is basically unrunnable.

My graphics card is an ati radeon x1950 pro AGP version. I read on their site that they only support up to x-org 11.4 and i heard that the linux distributions as of now are beyond that - so i cannot install the official drivers for it (whether they are any good anyway?). I saw in the package manager there are radeonhd drivers also, but i didn't really know what these are and this card is before ati started making their hd series.

So basically, i don't really know what to do or where to turn to in regards to this.

Some other small, unrelated questions are:

How can i increase the amount scrolled with each click of my scroll wheel so it's equivalent to windows? it seems to be one line at the moment, where as in windows i think it is something like 3 - whatever the case, it seems painfully slow.

Also, of my 5 button intellimouse explorer, strangely, the extra forward and back buttons seem to work, but the middle click button doesn't - or at least, holding it in and dragging the mouse to scroll doesn't seem to work - or should it be used for something different in linux?

Ubuntu Networking :: B43 / WL Drivers - Cannot Get Wireless To Work

Dec 23, 2010

When using the b43-pci-bridge driver for my broadcom card I can't get the wireless to work while if I use the wl driver it does. This is the only problem that I have that I can't use the wl because it doesn't allow me to change the mode of the card to monitor where as the b43 is compatible with mode change as well as with aircrack.

This is what lspci -nnk shows:
06:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43XG [14e4:4329] (rev 01)
Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge
Kernel modules: ssb
and neither network manager or iwconfig show blank while using the b43 driver but using the wl they do work....
