Any idea on how to do this? The open source driver does not do this, and the 2 propriety drivers (fglrx and fglrx-updates) both cause my computer to refuse to boot up.

The output of /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p is:

Not software rendered: no
Not blacklisted: yes
GLX fbconfig: yes
GLX texture from pixmap: yes
GL npot or rect textures: yes
GL vertex program: yes
GL fragment program: yes
GL vertex buffer object: yes
GL framebuffer object: yes
GL version is 1.4+: yes

Unity 3D supported: no

The lack of hardware acceleration has made my computer pretty much unusable, it runs minecraft a 6 fps...

Thanks in advance for the help!

Please specify the Ubuntu release version and Unity version, because it is version-specific problem. – Danatela Jul 16 '13 at 5:18

You could try installing the latest drivers from AMD directly, here is the link:

I've already tried this, did the same thing as installing the driver through the "Software and Updates" section. Any other ideas? – scaru Jul 16 '13 at 21:59
