Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my Dell Latitude D610 Laptop, but obviously hardware accelaration for the integrated ATI Radeon X300 mobility GFX-Chipset does not work.

And YES, I did install fglrx packages and YES I did have a look at additional proprietary drivers in system settings (it's not listed there). AND I created a xorg.conf within /etc/X11 and inserted a section for Device, subsection Driver "fglrx", it still does not work!

ATI Catalyst Control Center reports an error (no appropriate driver installed) if I try to start it. Any Ideas ?

Do you really need the fglrx driver? –  Bruno Pereira Oct 21 '11 at 18:04
Well, it seems that without it compiz desktop effects do not work (no "wabbering" windows and 3D effects(. And it seems, that the xscreensavers are running poor. So I assume that OpenGL-Drivers are not working correctly. But I must admit, that I am a newbie to Ubuntu at all (not to Linux, I used Suse and Solaris before) and I may be wrong of this. –  Palapu Oct 21 '11 at 18:24
Your card is too old to work with the proprietary drivers. The legacy drivers would, but do not function under current X.org versions anymore AFAIK. That was only an option up to Hardy Heron 8.04 or so. linux-magazine.com/Online/News/… –  mario Oct 22 '11 at 7:21
