I installed Ubuntu 13.04 on Lenovo T43 laptop. The resolution is OK, but the 2d video performance is terrible. I need a decent 2d performance and no 3d. I see the driver for the ati x300 video card (RV360 chip) is available and installed, but the video is very slow...

How this could be resolved? I searched the net and no real solutions found.

Problem solved... at least partially.

Ubuntu 12.04 installed, mesa utils too. The system is usable. 1080 video is not playable with the open source drivers apparently, but for all other functionality, I care about (no 3D) it seems quite OK.
