I have ubuntu 12.04.2 and kde. I have fglrx 13.1 latest drivers. Sometimes I have freezes at starup, it's very annoying, and I discovered it's bug : http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691
So maybe I should remove fglrx proprietary drivers and go back to mesa open drivers.
I want a failsafe graphics gui to fall back on whilst I'm working with fglrx drivers for a Radeon HD7950. I've just put this in my son's desktop, it's a recent fresh install of 12.04 LTS 64bit on a SSD, initially with a Radeon HD7750.
I just got Steam, and downloaded a game. It took a while, then told me I need the latest OpenGL software for my driver. So, I went to amd.com, found my driver( for the Radeon HD 6570 ) and, not to mention I couldn't do a non-force install, whenever it finished installing, and I rebooted, Unity was gone.
I am trying to install the Catalyst driver. The best I can get is a strange resolution problem and firefox acts all wonkt. The worst I have gotten is low graphics mode in which I just reinstall Ubuntu.
I have a HP Pavilion Dv7 laptop. With Radeon 3200 HD. I plan to try again with a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.4.3 as I have heard its the most compatible.
I am currently installing fglrx on my machine by following this tutorial https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fglrx In the finishing touches section, it mentions that I need to blacklist any current radeon or radeonhd drivers so that fglrx will run. How can I explicitly check if such a step is needed?
My laptop has an amd E-350 processor and HD 6130m graphics card.
