I have a Dell Studio 1535 notebook, which has a Mobility Radeon HD3450 graphics card in it. The problem is, that immediately after I install the ATI/AMD propietary FGLRX graphics driver, the screen brightness will be set up automatically to 100% after each reboot.
I've just bought my new machine, Lenovo thinkpad edge E520 with configuration mentioned at the end. I tried to install Ubuntu 11.10 64bit on it. It seemed to be no problem, but the graphics card driver.
I tried to use "Additional Hardware" which had
1. ATI/AMD propietary FGLRX graphics (post-release updates)
which resulted INSTALLATION FAILURE!
I'm looking into buying a gddr5, < 100€ dedicated video card. I'd like to know, on the pure driver and updates side, which between nvidia and amd gives a smoother experience? I am on x86_64 and have an intel i5 2500k cpu, and probably the choice ATM boils down to sapphire 6670 vs.
I have a amd radeon hd 3650 and I want to play games by steam. In ubuntu 13.10. The problem is that I dont know what would be better; if continue with the preinstaled free driver (Gallium 0.4 on AMD RV635, which in visual terms are going better than the privative one in my ancient 13.04) or to install the last privarive aviable that is the 13.1.
My question is about Linux in general but lets suppose my ubuntu isn't working property, booting in tty or whatever. I have no internet connection but I have ubuntu live cd. Is it possible to reinstall the desktop environment from live cd?
I am running Windows 7 on Dell Studio 1458 laptop,where it uses wireless without any problem.
I decided to try Ubuntu's latest Live CD so I ran it,but it didn't find the wireless driver for it.The system came with Dell Wireless WLAN 1520 minicard.
I tried to update the driver on linux platform and it updated Broadcom driver for it,but still it's not working.
Any help in this regard on how to insta
