Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon X1200 Motherboard Intergration Not Getting Detected?
May 20, 2011
how to i get ubuntu to use my on board gfx card because it can't find it. games that run super fast in windows are bogged down(and proably rendering using the cpu) and it was enough for cube and cube 2.any command i can use to scan for the mobo card or is it called something totally different than a VGA
I want my computer to be used as a DVD/BD player, and as of recently it has rejected its windows install and refuses to reinstall. Ubuntu 9.10 installed without problem, but when I select the X1200 (hdmi) audio output via the top right icon no sound comes out. I've searched this topic and one theory was that if i ran ALSA mixer the x1200 audio might be muted by default; it was not muted. I've also been told to update my catalyst, but using synaptics packet manager to download the catalyst control center, when I run it I get the message no supported hardware found. Is there any way to get this to work, or am I stuck with my speakers/3.5mm jack?
Unfortunately I'm having trouble finding proper driver support for the ATI radeon x1200 as described by another poster:
You should still be able to get full 3D support for your hardware by downloading & installing the drivers manually.
This is where it gets complicated, unfortunately.
ATI dropped support for some "older" 3D devices some time back (actually not all that old in many cases - it made a lot of ATI card owners very upset). So I'm not sure which drivers you'd need to download & install to get your 3D hardware working.
The Radeon x1200 device in your notebook is, confusingly, not the same as a desktop Radeon x1200 card.
I have an Acer Aspire 5516 and have been running ubuntu for a while. I couldn't resist the upgrade notice to 10.04 so I did it. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to recognize my video card ATI Radeon X1200 and I have to boot in safe graphics mode. I can use my computer but the display is a bit off. I have tried to install the ATI driver but get the following:
ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version default:v2: x86_64:lib32::none:2.6.31-14-generic; make sure that the version is being correctly set by --iscurrentdistro Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.eqUOxU
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?
The OS installed smoothly, however when I got to the desktop and wanted to go on firefox, I didn't realize I had no connection to the internet. Then I found out from the web and through the network configurations that said my NIC's driver is not installed. After many hours of researching, I could see people had similar problems with me and I tried to take those solutions and see if it'll work for me. Unfortunately it did not.
Here is my ethernet controller:

I upgaded my system last weekend with a Gigabyte GZ-X58A-UD5 motherboard, i7 processor, ASUS EAH5770 video card, and 12 GB RAM. Sound has been erratic since then. It generally works for a short time after a reboot, but after awhile (within a few hours) it stops working properly or even completely. I've tried several different settings in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, but nothing I've tried helps.
I am running Kubuntu 9.10 64-bit.
Here is the output of aplay -l code...
I don't have anything connected to the HDMI connection on the ATI video card, and only inputs on the M Audio Delta 44 card.
I'm finishing setting up my new computer.I'm installing ubuntu 10.04.The motherboard is a gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3When I plug the computer into my stereo, I get a horrible scratchy buzzing.How can I get rid of it?More info on hardware: Quote:lspci -v | less gives a lot of output, including this:Quote:

I'm testing a rather old motherboard (PC-Chips A31G) with both Ubutu Karmic and Lucid, everything seems to work fine but video playing.
I tried flv, mp4 and mpg with both mplayer and totem, but I can only get sound with no video, well, not a black screen but a deformed image (I don't attach an image because every attempt to capture the screen gets a black or transparent video).
I already installed ubuntu-restricted-extras package witho no luck.
What I don't understand is that, if I switch to another motherboard (using the same HDD), everything works perfect. I guess it's a problem with the motherboard's video chipset, but would like to confirm this and know whether there is a solution.
This is a problem that I have had since Ubuntu 8.04 when the sound on my system stopped working. I have an Intel DG33BU motherboard with audio onboard.
I originally had 7.04 installed on the system (sound worked fine) and did an upgrade to 8.04 for a couple of reasons and found the sound no longer worked.
I have since upgraded to 10.10 and despite trolling various audio threads have yet to get the sound working again. I have noted that when the system boots up there is a quick message (approximately from memory) 9.32.0061: audio codec not found for hda-intel.
Is there a troubleshooting guide or information someone can point me toward as I would like to solve this problem?
I have been trying to use the information at [URL]... otingProcedure to work through the problem.

Just installed opensuse 11.4 using a new motherboard, the MSI H67MA-E35. According to the book that came with the Motherboard it has a Intel H67 chipset and a "HD audio codec integrated by Realtek ALC887". Also have an older Hauppague TV card installed in the system. Not setting the sound quality I would expect. By this I mean that the audio played by webpages is low. And the audio played by the TV card is distorted. The volume control is ineffective.The only way I can adjust the volume is by the control on the speakers. Perhaps it is just as simple as setting opensuse to use a different soundcard?
I have run the script also-inso.sh and the results were uploaded to: [URL]..

I recently installed ubuntu 9.10 dual boot. All went well until I upgraded the video drivers for the nvidia chipset on my motherboard. If I leave Gnome to start with the single user i created i get a black screen and 'mode not supported ' message on the monitor. BUT if i drop to root and 'startx' all is well and i can adjust the various screen resolutions and they all work well.
At this point i created another user name to check, and that works fine also, but if i drop back to the original user i get no screen unless i select 800x600, although all the other resolutions work fine with root and the other user name. Im stumped as I presume there's only one xorg.conf file for all users.
I tried to listen mp3 on in, but it was too silent (of course, I tried to put speakers to be louder).. I switched to winXP (as a second OS) on this computer, and sound volume is ok, so I suppose it's problem in OpenSuse... I have ASROCK N68C-S UCC motherboard with nForce 630a sound chip on it.
I have installed openSuse 11.3 KDE, Due to my laptop being a bit old I am having difficulty nailing down the best graphics driver to work with. My Graphics card is an ATI Radon X1200. By default openSuse uses the Radeon driver for 2D, which is sadly not working quite as well as it should with my old graphics card. My basic problem is not that I can't get 3D (It uses swrast (No 3D Acceleration (7.8.2)), although that would be nice, it is that when I scroll on any page there is lag, and it looks jerky. I have therefore tested with fbdev, vesa, mach64, ati and radeonhd drivers respectively, and right out the gate the fbdev driver gave the best performance with no lag or jerking - surprising for the weakest driver. That said, I was unable to test with radeonhd or vesa due to them having errors. The radeonhd one gave the following:
(EE) FATAL: RadeonHD presently does not work with kernel modesetting (KMS). disable KMS in your kernel. what are the side-affects of disabling KMS, and is it something that I should consider doing, or should I just be happy with using the fbdev driver. As for the vesa driver, I can't remember the error that it gave, so I will have to check and post it up in a bit.
I recently decided to upgrade my old desktop instead of buying a new one. I figured I would go ahead and max out the specs on the motherboard while I was at it. I had a standard AGP slot and the best graphics card I could find for AGP was the Radeon HD 4650 (AGP 1GB GDDR2). So I ordered the parts and went on my merry way.I installed the card and did a fresh install of 9.10, hoping to max perform my "new" system. The card was acting kinda fishy on the live boot and I had to reboot a few times before it magically worked. I got installed etc and when I booted it worked, but it turned out performance was painful. When using Firefox the delay when scrolling down the screen was literally unbearable. No problem right, I used the restricted drivers app to go ahead and install the ATI drivers hoping that it would auto-magically fix things.
System booted but once I logged in the screen would just fill with freezing and garbage so it was impossible to get anything done. I experimented with all three options but this is what ended up being my solution. Download your ATI driver using this site: AMD Graphics Drivers & Software Just select Linux in the OS Select column.
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.
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.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a PC with the integrated Radeon X200 card. Currently, I have the free Radeon drivers, but they're either awful or aren't working properly. I get some wonky graphics errors, and any 3D game crashes as soon as the 3D graphics are to be displayed.
My card is no longer supported by fglrx. What can I do?
I am a total beginner to ubuntu. I have installed ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition with a CD on my laptop as only OS. So far (three weeks) ubuntu has convinced me. However, my screen starts flickering regularly after a while (even when the computer is idle) and the only solution so far has been to suspend/shut down. The flickering makes the computer unusable and doesn't stop if not shut down/suspended. Beside this issue the graphic seems to work fine.
My Computer is an ASUS F3J, the video card is a ATI Radeon X1700. 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M66-P [Mobility Radeon X1700] this is the xorg0.log:
Code: X.Org X Server 1.7.6 Release Date: 2010-03-17 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.24-27-server i686 Ubuntu
I have been just pretty much having fun with Ubuntu and a couple other distros for a couple years and have not yet ran into a problem like this. I'm pretty good in a command line environment although I end up googling syntax a lot b/c of that wonderful memory I have! Anyways..
I am running an older machine: P4P800 ASUS Mobo, P4 2 Ghz, 3G RAM and an ATI Radeon 9000.OS: Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Issues: Seems that anything that Compiz has to render the brightness is really low. CairoDock (w/ OpenGL) does not render like it does on other machines that I have, looks like garbage. I've come to the conclusion that I need to get a better video driver (Hope I'm correct here otherwise I've been going the wrong direction for awhile now).
Things I've tried through research around the net: I've attempted installing fglrx(command line style) from several tutorials I've found here and there. Most of them for older versions of Ubuntu and if I'm remembering right there have been a few significant changes lately, which may be causing my issues? Of course I've tried the easy ways: Installed all fglrx/ati/radeon related packages in Synaptics Package Manager Checked System > Admin. > Additional Drivers before and after package installations Ati Website - the drivers that they have are for XFree86. I don't think they can run on XOrg - it's a completely different setup? Again, I don't have a great understanding on how the back end of all this works, so bear with em.
I ran: echo options radeon modeset=0 > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf To disable KMS. Rebooted - Video was much worse I then ran: echo options radeon modeset=1 > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf To re-enable KMS Rebooted again. Everything ran fine but I didn't have my Cairo Dock > which I can deal with, that's not why I'm posting.. Well, that's a good chunk of it - there's more but I don't remember most of it as I've been working at this on and off for weeks. Again, a lot of this was tried upon researching anything and everything I could find on the net - so some of it might sound ridiculous, I was just trying anything that would work!!
