Ubuntu :: Slow Frame Rate With Radeon HD 6450 And Proprietary Drivers Under Natty 11.04?

May 3, 2011

I just upgraded to 11.04 from 10.10. I have a Radeon 6450 with 1GB of video RAM which should give me pretty good performance, but I'm only getting a measly 60 fps with the new ATI diver (11.4). I installed like this, making sure I'd removed the open source driver:sh ati-driver-installer-11-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/nattyThen installed the debs and ran an aticonfig --initial. The module builds and installs fine:tnugent@translocon:~$ fglrxinfo display: :0.0 screen: 0OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6450OpenGL version string: 4.1.10666 Compatibility Profile ContextBut this is not good:

tnugent@translocon:~$ fgl_glxgears
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
274 frames in 5.0 seconds = 54.800 FPS

Debian :: Slow Frame Rate With Fullscreen Video In Browser?

May 27, 2011

I'm using Squeeze Gnome.

When I watch videos within my browser, they play fine until I expand it to full screen, then the frame rate slows way down.

I've been reading related posts, If I install the gecko media player, will that solve this problem?

Multimedia :: Low Frame Rate VLC In Ubuntu Version 11.04 / Fix This?

Aug 17, 2011

Ever since I switched from ubuntu 10.04 to 11.04 I am having problems with playing videos.
I keep getting low frame rates while playing avi and mkv video files. I have tried messing around with the vsync option in compiz and the Catalyst control center but all to no avail.

I have read there are more ATI users with this problem. Is there a way to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI X1650 Poor GLXgears Frame Rate

Jul 26, 2011

11.04 x86
Dual 2.8 AMD
ATI x1650 radeon (512mb)

I've been struggling with this for months now and I've tried some many things, I've forgotten half of them!

Basically, 11.04 picks up my card fine using the open xorg driver. I've got compize desktop effects (wobbly windows) but I can't play any HD video as it stutters and is completely unwatchable.

So to do any video editing, I have to boot into my Windows 7 install where the performance is considerably better.

Now then, I once managed to get a glxgears frame rate of 11,000 before I broke my install and had to re-install. Now I can't get above 300fps

rb@ub:~/Desktop$ glxgears Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.

302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.258 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.023 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.019 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.022 FPS

Ubuntu :: Video Driver - Get A Better Frame Rate While Playing C&C Renegade

Feb 19, 2009

I tried reinstalling a better driver for my laptop the other night so that I could get a better frame rate while playing C&C Renegade. I was only getting 10 FPS and my ping was insanely high. So I went about installing a new driver and when it rebooted it started up in low graphics mode, asking to switch the driver. I tried everything I could, but nothing seemed to work. Right now, I get the boot screen and login screen and it looks normal, but once I log in, it flashes my background like its loading without a problem, but then it goes to a white screen. I can see my mouse on the screen though, and I know everything is working behind the white screen, because I can click stuff and can see my CPU LED blink, and I can use my desktop cube when I hold CTRL+ALT+(arrow). So I'm officially confused. I'm assuming there has to be some way to restore my driver somehow... BTW, Same thing happens when I boot into Gnome, X script, and Gnome Failsafe. The only thing I can do is boot my Live CD.

Here are my specs:
Acer Travelmate 2450
40 GB Hard drive
CD-RW Drive
ATI Xpress 200M (up to 128 MB, which is what it's set at)
Atheros WLAN card

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 :: Changed From The Proprietary Drivers To The Regular NVidia Drivers - Startup Logo Is Displayed At A Really Low Resolution

Jul 13, 2010

I installed Xubuntu the other night (completely wiped machine) and started doing all the updates on it. After a couple of reboots, I changed from the proprietary drivers, to the regular nVidia drivers. After doing this, the startup logo is displayed at a really low resolution. Is there a simple fix to change this and use the nVidia drivers as well?

Ubuntu :: FPS Of 50-60 In Glx Gears ATI Rage XL - Very Slow And Only Changes The Frame Every Second

Apr 25, 2011

why I have a really bad FPS and how to fix it.

MY Setup:
Two 1Ghz Pentium III (Coppermine)
1GB Ram
8.9GB Hotswap HDD
In a Dell Poweredge 2550 (I think it doesn't say on the case)
Ubuntu 10.10 (Installed Via remote boot - Has gnome GUI, LAMP, Apache etc.)

I would like to play some games on this server to take advantage of the CPU's (the fastest I have) The Graphics card can display up to 1152x864 so It should be able to handle some 3d gaming but it I try to play tux racer it is very slow and only changes the frame every second, must be very low FPS also glxgears gives me in-between 50 and 60 fps and most people seem to get 500+!

The problem is not compiz because it is no-longer installed and I think I am using the open-source ati drivers not fglx.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Proprietary Vs Open-source Driver On Radeon HD 5xxx

Aug 23, 2011

I have ATI Radeon HD 5650 (code name Redwood) on Ubuntu 11.04. And I have been experimenting with open-source and proprietary driver.

The problem with proprietary driver is bad 2D rendering when watching movies in VLC (and any other), because if vsync is off, video is tearing and when its on, the video seems to stutter (the background moves in steps, not smooth). I have tried open-source radeon driver and its far better, but that driver doesn't have 3D acceleration for playing games. I was trying to play Hive Rise, and with proprietary driver works great, but with open-source the game starts, but i don't see the interface (start game, options, etc.).

It seems that Mesa 7.10 (in Natty) doesn't have 3D support for this card, but Mesa 7.11 (in Oneiric) will have that. Is that correct? I just want to have good 2D performance with ability to play games.

Ubuntu :: Natty Screen Tearing / Incorrect Monitor Refresh Rate

May 3, 2011

I'm currently running an up-to-date copy of Ubuntu 11.04, but I'm noticing some strange behavior with the monitor settings. First of all, I started investigating this because I'm seeing a lot of screen tearing while watching videos full screen as well as while the screensaver (lattice) is running. On Ubuntu 10.10 I was able to simply set the refresh rate of my monitor to 60Hz through the Nvidia tool and everything worked great. Now, this is no longer the case. I'm using a Samsung Syncmaster 205BW monitor with an Nvidia 8600 GT video card. They are connected with a DVI cable.The strange thing is, the default tool, Monitors, claims my monitor is "unknown" and will only allow me to select 50Hz, 51Hz, and sometimes 52Hz for the refresh rate.

The Nvidia tool claims that my monitor has been detected as a Samsung Syncmaster and is configured to run at 60Hz.However, another area of the Nvidia tool claims that my monitor is using a refresh rate of 59.95Hz. none of these solutions had any effect. I'm still seeing video tearing. I let the Nvidia tool re-write my xorg.conf file after trying these solutions.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Slow Refresh Rate In Videos

Feb 27, 2011

I've got an annoying problem with refresh rates in everything to do with videos. Basically, anything that requires a quicker refresh than using a word processor. This includes flash movies on a website to playing an offline video. In website flash, the video tends to, well flash on occasion. The other sort of thing is pan lines or whatever they're called in videos like a simple .avi movie.

I currently have the nVidia 270.29 drivers installed for my GTS450 card, but this was happening with older versions. My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 943 which is detected. The resolution and refresh rates are sort of fixed on auto configuration. What I mean is, is that I can use the drop down menu to change the resolution to a manual option, and then it allows me to select a refresh rate, but only limited to 60 and 75Hz.

This setting will stay as is until I need reboot or restart Ubuntu. Even clicking on Save to X Configuration File is not a keeper. However, here's another problem. Doesn't matter which refresh rate is selected, I still get the above problems. The same resolution and refresh rate yields no problem under Win7 which I've dual-booted with.

Debian Hardware :: Radeon X1050 - Is This Card Supported In Squeeze By Either The Non-free Firmware Or The Proprietary Driver

Jan 13, 2011

Is this card supported in Squeeze by either the non-free firmware or the proprietary driver? I just got one to stick into an older box that will be going to a college girl that wants the 3D desktop in KDE. The built-in video was a joke and wouldn't even work without compositing. It was one of those crappy, non-standard pieces of crap known as a "Unichrome" (not the pro).

Ubuntu :: Enabled The Proprietary ATI Drivers?

May 2, 2010

I just built a new HTPC and decided to give Ubuntu a whirl again. I downloaded and installed 10.04, and set about configuring it. Everything looked great, except my audio over HDMI didn't work. I enabled the proprietary ATI drivers, and bam! the audio works! Great. Only one problem: there's a two inch border around my TV (not there with the open source drivers), and Boxee flashes colors rather than playing videos (a known bug. It's fixed by not using the ATI proprietary drivers). So, I disabled the drivers, rebooted, and the Boxee video works, the border/gap is gone, but once again the audio doesn't work. I've been through all the sound settings, and I have everything set to the HDMI output, but still nothing. I've tried various fixes I've found through googling

Ubuntu :: Video Lag Under 10.04 - Using Proprietary Ati Drivers

Oct 3, 2010

I'm experiencing video lag in games. I'm using 10.04 lts 32 bit and the latest version of proprietary drivers. For example I play hon and so and then it freezes for a small period of time which is frustrating.

I don't understand, my specs are:

Under this specs it should run perfectly. What's the matter? Ati drivers have poor support under linux? I tried updating to 10.10 and nothing. I tried contacting customer supporot amd but they can't help me. Nice isn't it?

Ubuntu :: Updating With Proprietary Drivers (AMD)?

Jul 13, 2011

I recently bought a new PC and it has an AMD GPU. I've been using Catalyst because the open source radeon driver gave me poor performance in games (maybe by 12.04 I can use it ).I've had some updates show up recently. This brings me to wonder if I have anything at all to worry about. This is a production machine and I don't want to muck around with fixing issues brought on by my usual apt-get upgrade.Currently, I've been avoiding updating a few packages related to the Kernel and Xorg:


The following packages have been kept back:

linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic

The following packages will be upgraded:

linux-libc-dev xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon

3 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.I had an NVIDIA issue back on Ubuntu 8.04 after updating once, due to a kernel update. I had to revert to an older kernel and mess around a bit to fix my installation. I don't have any experience with Catalyst. Basically, I want input as to whether or not it's dangerous to update this sort of stuff. I don't want to mess around fixing issues caused by a rogue update

Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit
AMD Radeon HD 6450
Latest proprietary driver available from Jockey.
