Ubuntu :: Install The Driver For ATI Radeon X1600 Series Video Card?
Jun 14, 2010
I'm trying to install the driver for my ATI Radeon X1600 Series video card. I got the driver from the ATI site. Heres the link: [URL]... I'm using 10.04 LTS. I have attached a screenshot of the message I get when I run the installer.
I'm a new Mandriva user,and have no clue about Linux system,but to be honest I don't want to use Windows product anymore. So I got the Mandriva 1 Spring Gnome,and installed it on my DELL Optiplex Desktop,works fine and very fast,therefore I decided to do the same with my Studio XPS 1640,but after I got a dark screen,so I used an external display(My TV) then realized that it doesn't support the video card on it ( ATI Radeon HD4670 ),and I don't know what to do.
The display card of my notebook is ATI rd 6370m ,the OS is fedora14. After I installed the driver download from ATI web site, it says that my computer can only run 2D can't run 3D. I want to know if some one used the same card with me in fedora14 has run 3D sussesfully? After the installlation I run "#aticonfig" it says "can't find the adaper".
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:
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 188.8.131.52 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:
I currently have a Hp NC8430 laptop running 10.04 and this one is amazing and love it, but my video card wont allow me to hook up an external monitor. I can enable compiz, but nothing else. When i install the ATI driver from the website for catalyst it allows the external monitor to work, but now compiz wont work? I dont understand what i am doing wrong and would like if someone could help me. My Video car is a ATI mobility Radeon x1600 and is not supported anymore which sucks so if anyone knows of where to get opensource drivers that would be awesome or a way to set this up. I would hate to have to use another distro, but i need external support.
Am trying to install the correct driver for my RV710 Radeon HD4350 grahics card.which version out of these two I should install: * x11-video-fglrxG02 (for HD2000 series and later) * x11-video-fglrxG01 (for Radeon 9500 - X1900)
I'm having trouble getting X to work after switching from onboard intel video to a 5000 series ATI card. Apparently I need to switch to a MESA or fglrx driver. I did a sudo apt-get install fglrx-driver and it installed but still no X. I'm currently using Karmic. I've tried to boot with a live CD which works fine and changed the xorg file manual but that was a mess.
When I start I get a checking battery state ... done and it stays there forever sometimes and sometimes I can login but without x. Typing startx gives me a long list that says check the xorg website. I've been looking around for a way to fix this and haven't been able to get it working.
I am attempting to make a video machine only... which mean I have a Compaq 6435cl and I have installed the latest verion of ubuntu on it. All I want this machine to do is play video from off the net on my LCD HD TV. The video on board was all choppy when going into full screen mode so I put in a 3dfx Voodoo card and the same thing happens. I cannot figure out how to install the drivers for this card in ubuntu so I was wondering if I should by a new video card. Do you have a recomended video card for ubuntu that would push HD video?
I'm a new user of fedora12 and I'm a beginer in Linux, I'll apreciate if someone tell me how to install a driver for my video card (nvidia 9400GT) because when I try desktop effect fedora disply an error "require hardware 3D support" and that tell's me I don't have the appropriate driver.
I have a video card. But I cannnot install nvidia driver because of some errors.
My video card's info is GeForce GTX760 1.5GB GDDR5. Code: Select all$nvidia-detect Detected NVIDIA GPUs: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:118e] (rev a1) Uh oh. Your card is not supported by any driver version up to 304.125. A newer driver may add support for your card. Newer driver releases may be available in backports.
I used commands below to install the driver,but when i executed the last command,it always outputted "no adapter detected",why? video cards ATI HD5650 was indeed insert correctly.Then i restart.unfortunately,i can't come into system.the screen was always flickering.I can't do anything but reinstall Ubuntu.Who can tell me why? thanks (my Ubuntu was installed in VMware workstation)here is commands i used:1.sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4
I have managed to work out how to install my NVidia video card driver. I'm just about to tackle getting the microphone aspect of my sound card in my laptop going. If that goes alright I'd like to install the Wacom drivers for my Cintiq 21ux.
I have sound coming out of my sound card, I just need to put some sound through it (for skype conferences)
Do you where I'd be able to find the right drivers or links to tutoials about or similarto my HP Pavilion dv5 1006tx?It's mainly the sound card and Wacom Cintiq 21ux I'm worried about.
I have installed Open Suse 11.1 on two different machines. One contains an ATI X850 video card, and the other contains an ATI X1950 video card. I updated the ATI drivers on the 850 card and it works like a dream. I updated the ATI drivers on the 1950 card and Suse becomes unusable. System works fine before the update. Before the update I ran it at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. I thought I would lower it to 1024 x 768 to see if that would help, but it does not. I dual boot with WinXP, and card works fine with that setup at 1280 x 1024, so I would suspect this is a specific problem with my Suse setup as opposed to a Motherboard issue.
I have an Asus M4A78L-M motherboard that has integrated ATI Radeon HD3000 video. Should I be looking for a driver specific to the integrated video, or should I be looking for a driver specific to the motherboard? I'm not sure if I should look for something different if the video is integrated onto the motherboard, as opposed to a separate video card. This is what I found: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...5&lang=English
Are there best practices for updating video drivers before I make any changes? I don't want to hose my video.
I have installed a 9200 Radeon (the card says 9250 on it, but computer reads as 9200) on a AMD Sempron 2500+ 64 bit,Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome 2.30.2, Kernel Linux 2.6.32-26; Samsung VGA 941BW monitor.
A friend told me if I added more RAM (512mb), the card would run properly & the graphics would be stellar.
He also told me the drivers were installed.
When I did this & started the computer, before I got to my login, a box appeared, telling me my graphics were running in "Low Mode", & do I want to configure them. When I said "Yes", it told me to restart. When I did, nothing happened & the video card is still running on "low". I checked the fglrx info, and was told "command not found".
i just instaled bt4 on my hdd and i have a problem with instaling drivers... i cant find and install driver for my video card nvidia 8200 integrated on motherboard. exacly i got the problem with changeing video resolution... i have only 640x480 and 800x600, and here is the problem, i cant put it in 1024x768..
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on an HP Desktop with an ATI Radeon 2600 pci card that has four outputs. I want to run the same 3-monitor array that I had in windows. Is it possible to get this thing running and configured right in Linux? At the moment I can only get it to send a signal to 2 monitors. I installed the drivers step by step from the manufacturer, but I can't seem to get a signal to all 3 monitors.
Using this video card but unable to find the setting for it in the options. I am using a generic VGA setting right now and it's getting less than optimum resolution. What's the proper setting for this card?
This is RedHat Enterprise edition. The machine is Dell OptiPlex 745 The monitor is Dell 2005FPW (Digital)
I am setting up a system that I was recently given and am having some problems with the ATI card configuration/driver (I think).
System is P4 3.0Ghz, 1GB RAM, 200GB SATA with new full install of Slackware 13, Fluxbox WM/DE.
Code: lspci lines:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)] 01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)] (Secondary) I have read a lot of things that seem confusing to me, but I have set it up mostly with info from slackwiki.org, and after reading various threads here at LQ.
I am using an xorg.conf created with Xorg -configure, with the radeon driver and have added the DRI section and enabled options per the above URL.
First, X starts and I can run glxgears and get a frame rate of 3100+.
But glxinfo seems incorrect:
Code: glxinfo |grep -i render GL_RENDERER: Mesa DRI R300 20060815 x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL I see no "direct rendering: yes" as seems to be required (am I missing something?).
Most things seem to work such as video playback from DVD and Flash.
At boot the vesa modes do not work and I have to use vga=normal, which is no big problem, although a better framebuffer mode would be nice if possible.
But the first big problem I hit is running Blender. When it starts my screen goes blank with just the mouse cursor visible and moving. To get out of this I can kill X or ctl-alt-Fx to get a new login and kill the blender process. Oddly, I found I can also alt-F2 (Open a Run dialog in Fluxbox) which opens with a running Blender behind it - but any attempt to interact with the blender window reverts to the blank screen with mouse cursor.
I believe this to be due to the lack of DRI mostly because of a similar problem once encountered on another system - but am open to other suggestions.
But I think I need to better understand and configure the drivers for this video card before troubleshooting any applications.
So, I guess my questions would be:
1. Is the radeon driver the best choice for this card? 2. Are there advantages/disadvantages to using the ATI driver instead? (Is there a slackbuild for the proprietary driver?) 3. Can someone point me to any better sources of info for ATI cards/drivers used under Slackware?
If I take out the existing video card and put in another one of a different type (but not a different brand), how does Ubuntu behave? I know what Windows typically does. Windows starts up the screen using a default video driver which is at least 1024 by 768 and then asks you what this new bit of hardware is and asks where the drivers are. I'm pretty sure Ubuntu has default drivers of its own, but I don't know what their resolution is.
