I've installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my emachine e625 AMD64 (TF-20) with an ATI RS690m X1200 graphics card but I didn't have 3D acceleration. The open-source driver works, except for any video effects or acceleration… I've downloaded the driver from ATI and followed the installation instructions and here is the result:

Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version
default:v2:x86_64:lib32::none:3.0.0-17-generic; make sure that the version is being
correctly set by --iscurrentdistro

What did I do wrong?

Could you please edit your question to give a link to the download and a link to the installation instructions that you followed? –  Agmenor Apr 30 '12 at 17:20

The file that you downloaded is ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run. It is an executable file.

  • Right click on the file, Properties, Permissions tab, check "Allow to run this file as a program".
  • Then in a terminal, move to your download folder, probably by typing cd ~/Downloads/.
  • In the same terminal window, launch sudo ./ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run.
  • Follow the installation wizard.

I am sorry but I personally don't know the answer. I hope that somebody else on this site does… Try looking for support directly from ATI if this question doesn't get answered. If they help you, please do not forget to post what helped you as an answer to your own question. –  Agmenor May 2 '12 at 21:36
