Ubuntu :: Get Graphics Drivers For ATI Radeon X1270 Installed On 9.04 Desktop?

Jun 17, 2009

I just got a free Ubuntu 9.04 desktop cd in the mail today, but I'm already having a problem.

I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop 32 bit. I need graphics drivers for playing video games such as Nexuiz. My graphics hardware is in ATI Radeon X1200 series. The fglrx driver I downloaded from ATI does not install.

OpenSUSE :: PC Speed Under 11.4 - Radeon Graphics Drivers From YaST

Jul 28, 2011

I've recently managed to install 11.4 with both Gnome 2.32 and KDE 4.6, moving from 11.3. However, there seems to be a significant speed degradation in terms of opening applications, switching windows, clicking on links etc. I have installed the Radeon graphics drivers from YaST, without much success. IMHO, Gnome seems slightly faster than KDE; however, it's still not great.

My machine worked well with 11.3 and seemed to be going pretty well; however, I wanted new and shiny, so. The PC has an AMD dual-core chip (can't remember the exact spec). Alternatively, is there good benchmarking software I could try to see if I can get an idea of my real speed?

Ubuntu :: Running An ATi Radeon Xpress 200 (integrated Graphics) With The Default Drivers?

Jan 30, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Radeon Drivers Causing XOrg Freeze With 3D Graphics?

Dec 31, 2009

I'm having a few problems with XOrg freezing while playing World of Goo (not the worlds most intense game for graphics, but seemingly too much for my rig). I initially posted on the developer's forums, but they said a full X freeze wouldn't be the game. Testing with BZFlag got me a full Xorg freeze even quicker than with WoG. Later I even tried glxgears to see how well it ran and even that froze the system! My only way of recovering is SysReq-REISUB.

Specs/system details:

2.4GHz Core 2 Duo (E6600)
2GB RAM
Radeon X1950XTX using the open source drivers
openSUSE 11.2 (64-bit - patched up to date and without an xorg.conf)

[code].....

So, is there a fix for the huge instability with 3D graphics, or am I stuck between a rock and a hard place with the options of outdated official drivers that may not work with the latest kernels (and would need manually rebuilding even if they did) or flakey open drivers that are guaranteed to freeze at some point, it is just a matter of when?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Black Screen With Radeon HD 4200 - With All Graphics Drivers?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm using openSUSE 11.4 on a HP Pavilion laptop, and it was working fine until last week or so. A zypper update seems to have upgraded to a package with a nasty bug though: it now boots into a black screen, instead of showing kdm.And the only option after that is to forcefully shut down the machine;ither Ctrl+Alt+F1 nor Ctrl+Backspace nor Ctrl+Alt+Del does anything. Not sure if this means the kernel hangs,or just that X blocks all keyboard input as well.The issue with powering off with the hardware button is that I don't get full log files (especially kdm.log) so it's a bit hard to investigate...I have tried many things, here are the results:

* Default radeon driver + kdm = black screen
* nomodeset + radeonhd driver + kdm = black screen [driver doesn't support HD4200 anyway]
* nomodeset + radeon driver explicitely requested + kdm = black screen

Fedora Hardware :: Getting Drivers Installed For An ATI Radeon X300 Card In F14?

May 20, 2011

Well I've been trying to get drivers installed for this card for a few days now and I can't get anything to work. The proprietary drivers for this card don't support the xorg version installed in F14. I've tried mesa and ati drivers but I can't get them to actually work, they both just cause x to crash during startup. I've looked through the threads for ati drivers but they all seem to talk about using the latest catalyst drivers and thus non of them have helped me much.

Ubuntu :: Installed Wrong Xserver Graphics Drivers

Feb 21, 2011

I accidentally installed ATI graphics drivers on an intel graphics system. They didn't appear to install properly, because upon next boot everything was fine, except for compiz and any 3d game.

compiz-check says that I've managed to get intel back as default, but I'm still missing a rendering method.

Does anyone know how to get the renderer back? I assume it has something to do with changing the kernel? I don't know how to change the kernel anyway.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Radeon Drivers - Cannot Activate Desktop Effects

Aug 8, 2010

I'm new to OpenSuse. Just installed it in my laptop.. Overall a great distro, I'm just getting trouble with some video aspects. I'm currently using the open-source radeon drivers. However, I can't activate desktop effects (ok..) and video playback looks choppy (sucks, I get like 3 fps). I've already tried some solutions, like installing fglrx driver (which makes my X system buggy) and trying to manually enabling DRI in xorg.conf (which didn't work).
My laptop GPU is an ATI Mobility HD5650.
Currently running OpenSuse 11.3 using KDE Desktop and radeon drivers.

Here's some of the result from my glxinfo (using auto-configured xorg, i.e., no xorg.conf):
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
client glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.8.2)

Ubuntu :: Installed Most Recent Drivers For Graphics Card Killed System / Fix It?

Mar 7, 2010

Completely new to Ubuntu, basically never used anything but Windows before, hadn't even had a chance to properly test out Ubuntu before I broke it. So, sorry if this question is very easy...or if I'm posting it in the wrong place...

Anyway, I cleverly installed the most recent drivers for my graphics card, and it killed Ubuntu - it won't start now. This happens on Windows, too, but Windows will System Restore for me. How might I fix this in Ubuntu?

I can choose Ubuntu from the grub menu, but then the screen goes blank, the fan on my computer goes into overdrive, and nothing happens.

Am currently running my Karmic Koala from LiveCD...

Fedora :: NVidia Drivers Installed - Graphics Errors Using Firefox

Fedora :: ATI Drivers Installed Successfully But KDE Won't Run Desktop Effects / Solve It?

Dec 8, 2010

I didn't post this thread in the hardware section because I got my ATI propitiatory drivers installed successfully and my problem seems to be with KDE. I'm trying to enable Desktop Effects for KDE.

The story is that ATI drivers installed correctly but when I go to "Application Launcher" => "System Settings" => "Desktop Effects" I can't enable Desktop effects and it has the following message:

"Desktop effects are not available on this system due to the following technical issues:
Required X extensions (XComposite and XDamage) are not available."

First of all I don't really know what this means. I have done some Googling around and have found a few places suggesting that I should enable the "Damage" and "Composite" extensions in my xorg.conf. I have done that, as you can see in the attached Xorg.conf file. It still doesn't work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Graphics Driver Trouble On 9.10 With ATI Mobility Radeon

Feb 23, 2010

I'm having some graphics driver trouble on my Lenovo Thinkpad T500. I tried getting the ATI Proprietary driver to work (fglrx) but everytime I boot my X just crashes. Now I'm trying to use the open source driver, but i dont think its working becaues a) It doesn't detect that an external monitor is plugged in (for dual-view) and b) when i run glxinfo i get a "Error of failed request: BadRequest" message.

Fedora Hardware :: ATI Radeon 4670 HD - 3D Graphics Not Available

May 2, 2010

Whenever I try going into "Desktop effects" it says:
Accelerated 3D graphics is not available
Desktop effects require hardware 3D support.
I'm guessing this is a driver issue? I tried installing a driver for it, I think it was Catalyst but it didn't really work.

Ubuntu Installation :: 8.04 Vs 9.10 - ATI Radeon 9000 Graphics Card Doesn't Recognize

Jan 20, 2010

I have an ATI Radeon 9000 Graphics card that Ubuntu 9.10 doesn't seem to recognize no matter what I do. Knowing that its an older card and that ATI stopped support for it a while ago, I was wondering if anyone knows if I would have better luck on Ubuntu 8.04. I can't get 3d or opengl to work, or install the correct ATI Driver.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Graphics Support For ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5000 Series?

Oct 10, 2010

So Ubuntu had been working great in Lucid, and when I upgraded to Maverick the support for my graphics card stopped. It has the proper driver ("ATI/AMD Proprietary FGLRX graphics driver") active and fglrx, fglrx-amdccle and fglrx-modaliases are all at 2:8.780-0ubuntu2. I also have the xorg radeon package installed. Yet, whenever I try to enable desktop effects (to get compiz to work) it says that Desktop effects could not be enabled.

Ubuntu :: Switch Graphics Adapter(ATI Mobility Radeon 5450-> Intel GMA) In 10.10?

Oct 19, 2010

Installed Ubuntu 10.10 on fresh HP dm4-1050so laptop and encountered problems, this is one of them. Noticed that ATI card is heating heavely with default installation and I would like disable it and switch to use Intel's GMA. Also tested ATI proprietary fglrx driver through Administration->Additional Drivers, after booting got empty screen so I switched back. Afterwards read from documentation that 5450 is not supported, so no wonder. So what is the simplest way of disabling ATI and using only Intel's gma? Here's what I got with lspci -v:

Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 1469
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 45
Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]

Ubuntu :: ATI Mobility Radeon Hd 3650 Graphics Card Is Not Supported - Compiz

Nov 8, 2010

I'm having problems with my graphics. I have ATI mobility radeon hd 3650 and I get an issue with desktop effects. They can't be enabled even though the card is supported. I had some trouble with installation and used this thread's instructions: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9133906. I finally seem to have it installed and configured but I still can't use desktop effects. Also this whole process started because I couldn't get minecraft working getting the GLX13 error.

Slackware :: Slow Graphics With 13.37 And Radeon Mobility X1600

May 4, 2011

I've upgraded (reinstalled) from Slackware 13.1 to 13.37 on an old iMac and have problems with slow graphics.
lspci says this about the graphics card:

Code:

With Slackware 13.1 I had no KMS enabled and graphics speed was okay. It wasn't very good, but okay for everyday work. Now with 13.37 it's extremely slow. glxgears runs with only around 38 fps, no matter what I do. And every now and then when logging off, I get a black screen and no new kdm-login. But I can ssh into that machine and restart X by issuing 'init 3;init 4'.

KMS is enabled (I've also tried disabling it, but then KDE crashes right after logging in) and it's a fresh installation of 13.37 with a 2.6.37.6 kernel.

What can I do?

I have to admin I don't know this video and X stuff very well and I used to have machines with NVIDIA cards.

If there's anything else than the usual Xorg.0.log needed.

To me the log doesn't look like there's any problem whatsoever:

Ubuntu :: Built On A ASUS P4S800D-E Motherboard And It Has An ATI Radeon 9200 LE Graphics Card

May 23, 2010

I just lost my weekend trying to install Xubuntu 10.04 on my pc I made the ps a while back - its built on a ASUS P4S800D-E motherboard and it has an ATI Radeon 9200 LE graphics card. It has a PS/2 keyboard and mouse, 1Gb of memory and a 160Gb PATA/IDE hard drive (I unplugged the SATA drives) Every time I installed or made a tweak to the config it failed in the same way. It showed its failure by continually repeating the first character typed. Regardless of whether this was the password screen for synaptic or just the first character typed into a terminal. Until the first character was typed the mouse seemed to work ok but then it would stall too

I've tried most things, running Xorg with/without an xorg.conf file, loading the ppa kernel and tweaking loads of bios and grub boot parameters all to no avail. So I think I want a more linux friendly graphics card and I fear I may need a new motherboard. Can someone recommend a replacement graphics card for this motherboard? Can anyone reassure me that my motherboard is ok with linux?
