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 Multimedia :: ATI EAH4350 (Radeon 4350) Mouse Trapped And Keyboard Locked In Dual Head?

May 9, 2010

I have successfully installed an ATI EAH4350 (Radeon 4350) to work as a dual head in Ubuntu 10.04 but there is a bug though, which I noticed given the following scenario:

* Dual Head config (Multi-desktop)
* Monitor 1
- Running firefox and terminal
* Monitor 2
- Running WinXP in Virtual Box 3.1.6
- Virtual Box is in full screen mode
- WinXP is showing a flash movie using firefox also full screen mode
* Monitor 2 is configured above Monitor 1.

Sometimes the mouse gets trapped at the top of Monitor 1 (in between the two monitors). Keyboard doesn't function as well but the currently running apps continue to operate "normally". Ctrl + Alt + Fx doesn't work.

What is frustrating is when it happens it's beyond my control. I can't do anything else besides reset the PC.

Fedora Hardware :: Install Drivers Fro 925x/ICH6R Chipset Or Ati 4350?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm a bit of fedora/linux newbie, and I just installed 12. I'm wondering if I need to install drivers for my 925x/ICH6R chipset or ati 4350? I'm using the 4350 to stream video to the TV. I have the BIOS set to RAID on the ich6r, b/c I may add a storage array in the future, but the boot disk is on a singe hdd. I actually downloaded the ati drivers, but the instructions had so many dependencies I got a little overwhelmed

Ubuntu :: No Compiz When Go Back To Radeon From FGLRX?

Jul 18, 2010

I'm having trouble getting back Desktop effects when I try to go to the radeon drivers from fglrx. It worked when I first installed and it works on a live cd. My main reason for going back is because A. Brightness settings don't work on my laptop with fglrx. and B. Gnome-shell isn't working with fglrx.

I have a radeon 3100 (I think).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Ati Radeon 5670 Fglrx With 11.2 (x64)?

Mar 18, 2010

I have a problem with the Radeon 5670 and the fglrx driver in opensuse11.2. I've created a rpm from the newest ati*x86_64.run (catalyst10.2, witch should support the radeon 5600 series) and installed it following the "ATI-the hard way" instructions. Here is the resulting Xorg.0.log:

X.Org X Server 1.6.5
Release Date: 2009-10-11
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0

"PCI bus 1 card 5 func 0" seems to be the Onboard-Graphics (Radeon 3200) and "PCI bus 2 card 0 func 0" i think is the Radeon5670 set as primary graphics adapter in the BIOS

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Switching From Fglrx To Radeon

Mar 12, 2011

I've been using fglrx since 11.3 came out, and I just upgraded to 11.4 today and noticed that my graphics card is now supported by the open-source radeon driver. I was trying to switch, but was never able to properly switch the driver and get radeon running. I've read many of the help pages, but still am unable to actually get radeon working.

Perhaps I'm missing something, such as not properly removing fglrx, but I'm not too sure.

Software :: ATI Radeon Mobility HD5870/Asus G73JH & Fglrx?

May 5, 2011

coming back to linux after a few years away and I'm trying to get it set up on my Asus G73JH laptop. Problem is the closed-source drivers aren't playing nice. I can get it to start with the "radeon" driver but when I try to use fglrx, either through a manual xorg.conf change or aticonfig, I get a black screen (or a couple times a white blob moving across the screen) and then the system hangs. The biggest problem with this is I can't access the output from the X server and nothing is being written to the log files (probably because I have to hard-reboot). I've googled and read just about everything I can and I'm pretty much lost for ideas now. I'm not too good with troubleshooting Linux since it's been a while but there are a couple things that would be really helpful to me: a way to save whatever X puts out before the system hangs and a comparison from someone who plays decently graphics-intensive games between fglrx and the open source driver because I don't mind using the open source drivers as long as performance is comparable. Any extra information I can post I will as requested but I think being able to review the X output is a good place to start!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Success: Fglrx + Radeon HD 2400 + Libva/vaapi GPU Decoding?

Jun 26, 2010

I'm owning an old single Core AMD (Opteron 148, like Athlon 64 3200+), it can't play h264 1080p-Videos without framedrops in active scenes. I'm also owning an not so old AMD/Ati Radeon HD 2400. It's not an UVD2 card, it's not even UVD+, its UVD i.e. UVD1. All articles regarding GPU h264 decoding I've found so far are saying "for vaapi gpu decoding on linux you need to have a UVD2 card". That's wrong! My UVD1-Card is playing fine some demo movies.


Ubuntu "Lucid" 10.4
"deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nvidia-vdpau/cutting-edge-multimedia/ubuntu lucid main" in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cutting-edge-multimedia.list


(With the original Ubuntu Lucid fglrx (8.723) there's some error, I don't remember the words. It doesn't work for me)It's working. I can play h.264 HD Videos with mplayer and decode it with a Radeon GPU. vlc 1.2 not working so far. It seems it's decoding fine, but screen remains green. Here's a screenshot, no fake! It's a two Monitor setup with fglrx' big Desktop. On the right there's running a movie Trailer (I Am Legend) and on the left there's some status info. Quality is not perfect (as you can see, horizontal displacement), but it's basically working.

Fedora Installation :: ATI Redeon 12 - FGLRX Driver For A Radeon HD 4850 Isn't Supported

Dec 23, 2009

I have been trying to install the FGLRX driver for a Radeon HD 4850. According to this page and others on the web, it says that Xorg 7.5 isn't supported by the driver. I was just wondering is it possible to install Xorg 7.4 on Fedora 12, if not what release of Fedora should I use (i.e does Fedora 11 support Xorg 7.4?)

Debian Hardware :: ATI R7 Graphics Card - Open Source Radeon Or Fglrx Catalyst?

Jul 11, 2014

I've set up this new PC, the graphic card I picked is the ATI R7 260X, pretty good card with lots of core processors, high clock and 2GB memory. I'm now currently using the 14.4 catalyst drive, it works actually alright, though, there are some mishaps with this driver:

First my hdmi screen had scale down, leaving black borders around, even though the catalyst control said the correct native resolution, this turned out to be a underscan that fglrx does and I've finally managed to fix it. Other caveat is that the screen simply won't suspend or turn off( via software), DPMS actually works, forcing it turns the screen blank for some seconds but something does not allow the screen to sleep.

Performance wise it seems pretty good though, everything is pretty smooth, being able to play games maxed out on resolution and ultra settings, though, I still haven't tested out that many games.

The open-source radeon on the other hand, well its open-source, fully xorg and linux compatible, which is a major plus point. It seem it has come a long way, supporting lot of features and providing better performance in some cases.

Before installing Catalyst I had issues with mesa and steam, steam would complain about not finding the 32bit libraries, this is however a steam runtime issue, maybe it could already be fixed.

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 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

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.

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 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 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.
