Ubuntu Multimedia :: Install The ATI Driver And The "ATI Catalyst Control Center"

May 10, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu amd64 10.04 on my Gateway LT3114u Netbook. The video card on this device is ATI Radeon� X1270. For some reason the automatic driver installed by Ubuntu is not working perfectly, I noticed that because: When the "Appearance Preferences" - "Visual Effects" are set to "Normal" or "Extra", some very weird lines and images apear, and I can�t read any word as the characters are messy. But if this setting is "None", the system works just fine!

Also, I tried to install the ATI driver and the "ATI Catalyst Control Center" and when I try to run it, it says the ATI driver is not working ok. Any tips on how to solve it? Please consider Im a begginer for Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Catalyst Control Center Not Saving Changes?

Mar 15, 2010

Catalyst Control Center (CCC) is not saving the changes I make. I saw a couple of thread about this that had links to instructions on how to install CCC, but it still doesn't work for me.

I start CCC with 'sudo amdcccle' and the GUI appears. I can use it to make changes; however, it never saves them. After clicking OK, it instructs me to restart the system. After a reboot all the setting are back to the default.

I have installed CCC three different ways:

1) sudo aptitude install --without-recommends fglrx-amdcccle | tee fglrx-amdcccle.log

2) sudo envyng -t

3) sudo ./ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run

In all cases, the fglrx driver works, and 'sudo amdcccle' brings up the GUI, but the changes are gone after a reboot.

Hmm, at the moment, when I click "Apply" and the "Do you want to keep these settings?" 15 second countdown box appears, no changes occur even temporarily.

I've tried doing a fresh install of 9.04, then upgraded to 9.10 (I have problems with the 9.10 command line installer not installing grub) among other things.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 - ATI Graphics Installed And Catalyst Control Center

Feb 25, 2011

I run Ubuntu 10.10 on a dual monitor set up with one direct to my monitor and one to my TV through HDMI. I run the screens in clone mode with the TV showing exactly what is on my monitor(same resolutions/refresh rates). My problem is that I have problems with software that involves any sort of 3d rendering/openGL. I have ATI drivers installed and catalyst control center. I first noticed the problem just after install where I am unable to see any of the screensavers that have GL in the title. My screen just goes black even in preview mode.

I started downloading a few games. All my 2d games work, but when I installed Oolite all I got was a black screen. So I uninstalled all my ATi software and Oolite worked just fine without the ATI drivers. The screen savers still refuse to work and I am not sure where to begin to diagnose the problem. I also notice alot of tearing when watching any sort of videos on my TV screen. I haven't found any way of creating a "theater mode" where by I get fullscreen video with full V synch on one monitor whilst windowed on the other monitor.

Below are a few of my system specs:
CPU Type AMD Athlon 64, 2200 MHz (11 x 200) 3200+
Motherboard Name Unknown
Motherboard Chipset SiS 761, AMD Hammer
System Memory 1024 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)
BIOS Type AMI (11/09/07)
Display
Video Adapter ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series (512 MB)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Opening ATI Catalyst Control Center Forces Sudden Logout ?

Dec 16, 2010

Ubuntu 10.10 x64. Got a second monitor and enabled Xinerama. It asked me to restart, I did. I opened ATI Catalyst Control Center after the restart and saw the control panel window open for about half a second before suddenly finding myself at the login screen.

ATI Catalyst Control Center has always seemed to work fine up until I enabled Xinerama. I tried removing the ATI driver, restarting, re-enabling it, restarting, and ATI Catalyst Control Center worked fine again. But, as soon as I enabled Xinerama it went back to logging me out whenever I tried to open the control center. I've tried from the GUI menu as well as the terminal using 'gksudo amdcccle', same result every time.

The dual monitor functionality seems fine, but I need to get back into the control center to adjust the colors. I do a lot of photo editing, and the adjustments in the control center really is a great tool to let me get the colors how I'd like.

Debian Multimedia :: Forcing 1920x1080 Resolution Via Catalyst Control Center?

Jun 7, 2011

I've been working on this off and on for the last couple of days and I can't seem to get this working. I'm using the latest Catalyst Control Center (11.5) and I've also got xorg.conf set up for this resolution. If I switch the driver in xorg.conf to radeon from fglrx, I can get my 1920x1080 resolution (only on GNOME;the login screen and Fluxbox have a black bar on the left that cuts off about a quarter of the screen). When using fglrx and Catalyst Control Center, I can only get a maximum resolution of 1600x1200.

Xorg.conf:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier"Manual Layout"
Screen "Screen-0" 0 0

Ubuntu :: Assistance With ATI Catalyst Control Center

Mar 26, 2011

Today is my sort of third day with the OS and I'm still loving it. I've been able to get the hang of quite a few things in Maverick but there is one thing that I really need help with.Back in Win7, I had the very same situation and after a week of messing around I was able to get it working; it was sheer luck, but hey, who cares?

I'm running an ASUS M4A785-M motherboard with an integrated ATI 4200 video card and using a 32" Toshiba TV with HDMI video and sound, which Ubuntu was kind enough to download the proper drivers for all on its own; Win7 didn't. Problem is, the best resolution I can use is 1920x1080, but at that point some of the text looks just too small, so I use the 1776x1000 resolution instead. Still, the grand majority of websites don't fill the browser. I have to manually zoom in each time so they can look properly. I know that after a week of tinkering in Win7 I got it working just fine without the need to zoom in on pages. I can't remember for the life of me how I did it and I had accidentally formatted the entire HDD once and all those settings got lost.Lower resolutions make it worse too. On some of them, the actual computer window won't even fill the TV unless I change certain settings, and then it still looks horrible because everything gets stretched out sideways and gets squashed and even if the PC screen doesn't fill the whole tv, it overcasts itself in the middle; as if I was using a much smaller monitor and it was overcasting.

Ubuntu Installation :: Does ATI Catalyst Control Center 10.10 Work?

Nov 19, 2010

Looking at the AMD/ATI download pages, I can't tell if catalyst control center (which installs the drivers) is fully functional for Ubuntu 10.10.

Has anyone had success with this software?

I have integrated ATI Radeon 3200 HD graphics on my motherboard and can't get things working.

Ubuntu :: Catalyst Control Center - Administrative - Does Not Open

May 30, 2011

I am currently using Xubuntu version 11.04 and I am working with a Radeon HD 4850 graphics card. I am using the proprietary FGLRX drivers from AMD.

I have a small problem. I have two monitors, and in order to tell the computer to use the extra monitor for extra desk space, I have to get into the Administrative CCC. However, when I click on the administrative CCC, nothing happens. It's strange considering that the regular CCC works just fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Catalyst Control Center (Overscan Adjustments)

Jan 4, 2011

I've got 10.10 up and running like a champ. Haven't done much in it, but all was well. After a little while I went in to turn the cool effects on, and it told me I needed a driver for my ATI card so I said go for it. It ended up putting Catalyst Control Center in for me. That's all fine and dandy except on the windows side I can get into an area that allows me to adjust overscan and turn it off (its a slider for under and overscan).

This version wont seem to let me do that, so now I'm stuck with either NOT a full screen, or no ability to have fun graphic effects. While your here, how can I change the data files which I think ubuntu refers to as your /home folder (documents pictures etc) to a different location? Windows7 and Ubuntu need to see the files in the same places so I don't have to have two working sets of files.

Ubuntu :: Natty Login - With Ati Catalyst Control Center - Screen Goes Blank ?

Sep 1, 2011

I just did a fresh install of natty, installed a few programs along with the ati catalyst control center.

I am having serious login issues, here is what I do:

I am at the login screen right from start-up, type in username and passward and hit enter, screen goes blank, it appears I am logging in, ubuntu plays a sound and puts me back at the login screen. I do not get an "Authentication Failed" error like I would expect. Unable to login as myself or as root.

However, I am able to login if I select the "safe mode," I am not able to login under the normal mode or the ubuntu classic modes.

I suspect that this issue has to do with the ati proprietary drivers, after playing with the settings for a while in safe mode I am now able to login to the normal natty mode without any apparent issues.

Here is what I changed in ati catalyst control center to boot into natty mode:

I disabled the Xinerama and Tear Free options.

Under the 3D settings, I selected the "override application setting" for all the 3D settings I could.

I believe I still have some display issues as I am unable to drag windows from one display to another, my mouse is able to move just fine across displays though.

I also found that enabling Xinerama prevented me from logging into the ubuntu and ubuntu classic modes, but I was able to login to the ubuntu with no effects mode.

Fedora :: Fc12 - Initializing Catalyst Control Center - Libatiadlxx.so ?

Aug 1, 2010

I finally upgraded from my old Passive Nvidia 6600GT video card to a passive ATI 5750. Using Fedora Core 12, 2.6.32.16-141.fc12.i686, On boot the native driver worked but the card got hot as it was not de-clocking into idle mode like it does under windows 7.

So I reluctantly installed the closed source ATI driver from RPM Fusion

I also added nomodeset to the kernel start-up

Previously I was using the native standard built in Nvidia driver.

The new ATI driver seems to be running with correct entry in Xorg.conf and now it runs very cool at idle just like under windows :-

However the control center will not start...There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition.

Also some commands using aticonfig return this error...

These libs are on the system in /usr/lib/catalyst

I am also getting video tearing in movies with mplayer and VLC. I have tried the options...

Which added a vsync entry in xorg.conf, but No luck...I think I need to get catalyst control center (amdcccle) running which I has a sync on refresh option radio box that may solve my video issue.

I can live with these errors but the video / movie tearing is a show stopper.

I am getting headache over this trying to find a solution to these issues. ATI and Linux still do not mix well

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Catalyst X86_64 Driver For Radeon 4850 Install Failing?

May 2, 2011

I realize that Canonical is not responsible for the Catalyst driver, but I can't seem to operate outside of the Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode for 64 bit Natty, and I was curius if anyone else had encountered or resolved this.

When I upgraded from 10.10 (I was using the fglrx package), xorg would immediately crash. I was able to reach the gdm screen only using recovery mode. I uninstalled the fglrx package, and now I can boot into Ubuntu Classic (no effects) mode only (no other desktop will work) using the open-source driver at no greater than 1280x1024.

When I try to re-install the catalyst driver using aptitude or Administration->Additional Drivers, the installation fails:

(jockey.log: WARNING: modinfo for module fglrx failed: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module fglrx)

Similarly, package generation from the AMD page fails:

Installation complete.
*** glibc detected *** ./setup.data/bin/x86_64/setup: double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x000000000259f630 ***

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 4870x2 Catalyst Driver \ Finding The Proper Configuration Of OS Version And Driver Version?

Apr 8, 2010

I've been searching for an hour or so and can't seem to find a concrete answer. My endgame is having Ubuntu successfully installed (either 9.10 or 10.04) with a fully working Ati 4870x2. I desperately need some help on finding the proper configuration of OS version and driver version. I installed 10.04 with the 10.3 driver package from ATI's site and it was a no go - I had nothing but problems.

I would like to have full 3d acceleration so I can play some games through Wine. This is a powerful card - I know ATI doesn't have a great reputation in the Linux world but I really hope there is a driver version I can install to get some good results.The rest of my specs are in my signature I need to install 64 bit Ubuntu to make use all of the system and video ram.

OpenSUSE Install :: Is There Tool Can Use In Control Center?

Mar 19, 2011

I installed OpenSuse 11.4 Gnome on my Toshiba laptop. A couple of things i noticed while trying the live CD first is that the file manager recognized my NTFS partitions and after I installed I expected it to do the same. Also, while installing I thought I selected a secure logon with username & password. After installation it boots right into the desktop GUI. I haven't had a lot of time playing with OpenSuse yet and I have browsed through some threads and I couldn't find a way to configure a secure logon and do I have to mount the Windows partitions in the Command Line or is there a tool I can use in the control center?

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast Control Center - Error Accessing?

I'm having trouble with Yast, I noticed today that I can't open the control centre from the desktop (along with install/remove software) when opening from the command line I get. the following output:

** (y2controlcenter-gnome:9050): WARNING **: error accessing /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_command_line [Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See GConf configuration system for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)]

Yast2 control centre opens, but none of the options load when selected. I have tried updating everything through Zypper which didn't work. (aka zypper ref/up etc). Then I tried removing yast and installing it again. When I did this (and downloaded the Yast control centre again the above errors, reappeared.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Catalyst Graphics Driver Install Failure In 11.3

Sep 17, 2010

I tried to install the ATI proprietary driver for an HD 5800 (Catalyst for Linux 64 bit, v. 10.8). The two main instruction sites are:

SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE
SDB:ATI drivers - openSUSE

I chose the hard way method. I downloaded the driver. Restarted SuSE 11.3 in mode 3. And as SU followed the method above, including adding the zypper programmes (which found some already installed and which installed a whole lot more). When I then attempted to run the install (sh ./atidriver-install-10.8-x86.x86_64.run) and selected automatic mode. It completed 82% and stalled attempting to install "Postprocessing Kernel Module".

I pressed control c to kill the process and attempted to re-install using the manual mode and then using the build mode. In both instances, same outcome. When I rebooted, and entered my password, the desktop did not load but sent me back to the username/password page. I can't get back in. Does not matter as I have backed up my docs.

I decided to install the proprietary driver because the colours on the desktop corrupt after the 2nd boot following a clean install. i.e. on the initial boot the colours are fine. Second, this is the 3rd effort I have made to install the driver after a clean install of SuSE 11.3 and there is no change in outcome. So, my question: anyone any suggestion what is going on and how I can install the driver successfully? Or, do I not understand the new regime in SuSE 11.3 and should I not attempt to install a new driver.
