Problem: Improper Drawing in Some Windows
OS: Ubuntu 12.04 (Mythbuntu)
Motherboard: ASUS M5A88-V Evo with integrated Radeon HD4250 graphics card.
$ lspci -nn | grep VGA 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RS880 [Radeon HD 4250] [1002:9715] 06:08.0 Non-VGA unclassified device : Device [1b7c:0004] (rev 01)
After screwing up my video driver installation as detailed here, I was able to reinstall the desktop, get my GUI back, and finally successfully installed the proprietary Catalyst 13.1 drivers. However, that didn't fix my problem.
I'm having the same drawing issues that I was having without the proprietary drivers.
Most windows draw fine, but Chromium gives me blank pages, MythTV doesn't draw properly, and even the Catalyst Control Center doesn't draw properly, as is shown in the following image:
I have x11vnc installed, and I see the same thing remotely and locally. I have tried disabling x11vnc, but that didn't fix the problem. But could there still be some connection?
Any ideas on what's wrong and how to fix this?? Thanks!
When I run Catalyst from the command line, I receive these errors. Methinks this is telling, if only I knew what it meant...
