Forgive my lack of knowledge, but I assumed that the proprietary drivers would be faster. I read somewhere that the use of VESA is much slower and Ubuntu indicates that VESA is used even though the ATI-drivers are recommended by the system. How can I revert back to the Radeon-opensource drivers which are MUCH faster? Even the rendering of the text I type is slow. :-(
with the proprietary drivers, do 2 things.
