1.just double check that IOMMU is not enabled! 2.if you use (u)efi boot and signed kernel mobo and gpu/s both must have (u)efi bios..if gpu not have that kind of bios, a)update bios of gpu with factory uefi gpu bios,or with non factory modified older non (u)efi gpu bios(updating bios is always risk!) b)simply dont boot Ubuntu (u)efi way,change boot device ...

I had exactly the same problem. I used the following technique Firstly remove all previously installed drivers : sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle Now install them fresh : sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle After the installation is done use the command given below sudo amdconfig --initial Now reboot your system. Your computer ...

This is not a complete step-by-step solution, but you look experienced enough. :-) Fglrx driver is installed using dkms. You can always remove this diver for a specific kernel by command sudo dkms remove <module_name>/<module_version> -k <kernel_version> module_name is fglrx or fglrx_pci if I remember it correct. Also you can edit ...

FGLRX is very generic. It is not specified to fit one specific graphics card, but to support as many features as possible with as many different chips as possible. Also, the chip detection isn't as exact as it could be. As an example, my AMD A8500M series APU is detected as AMD A4500, but I don't have any problems with that, as all promised features are ...

I think that you should try with the open source driver. You can uninstall the fglrx driver with: sudo /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx Uninstall and reinstall this packages affected by fglrx: sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati sudo ...

I have had same problem first you have to install flgrx update, and then reboot it give the error, and then you have to enter the tty push Ctrl + alt + f6, and then you have to type this in the tty: sudo apt-get install lxde and then this startx and it starts the LXDE, and then enter start button and use preferencs, and then the upper gfx ...

You can get this in-distro now which is the better way to support it over time. sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-core

Can't comment; so, here is an "answer"-ish thing... Kernel upgrades stopped regenerating the fglrx modules on 12.04 a while ago (>1 year). After the reboot (to activate the new kernel), lightdm will let you log in, but then you quickly receive an error related to your virtual screen size and are sent back to the login screen. Primary monitor has very low ...

/var/log/Xorg.0.log showed me that I was missing libGL.so.1. So I installed libgl1-mesa-glx. I also loaded the radeon module as suggested here and also blacklisted fglrx (this was important in my case as Xorg.0.log keeps on saying unable to load fglrx; actually it's still saying that but everything is working fine.)

The sound device on your HDMI should appear the same whether you use Proprietary (fglrx) or Open Source (Mesa) drivers. On AMD cards it is run through the ALSA drivers, and is on a separate PCI sub-device as far as software is concerned. You probably simply do not have it set as your default sound output. You should be able to do this in the appropriate ...

You will probably need to mess around with your xorg.conf file. However, you have 2 different GPUs by the look of it. Of course, you won't manage to use 2 X Screens, and for me Xinerama didn't work. I got mine to work (1 screen on each GPU) by not specicifically referencing the second GPU. I (however) am using 2 nVidia GTS 450s, and 2 identical screens, so ...

Screen 0 is behaviour of Ubuntu, when inproper or none (standard) graphical driver is present. In general for this situation is necessary to install additional drivers. For Nvidia drivers you have to search for additional drivers in Ubuntu software center - settings - software sources - additional drivers // english names in menu are not exact. As you ...

Today I have this problem, I wanted to use AMD/ATI driver to render in Blender. My problem was that my computer was running in Low Resolution. Maybe you have such "amazing" problem. Solve that problem When your PC turns on go to TTY by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1, if you have enabled functional keys go to TTY by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Fn+F1. Login with your user ...

You are confusing the name of the processor architecture: "amd64" with the brand of processor. Current Intel processors run the "amd64" processor architecture. The architecture is named that because it was initially invented by AMD (or at least, the 64-bit extensions were). The correct architecture for your CPU is "amd64". Sometimes this architecture is ...

I had a similar problem to yours and I solved by installing the AMD catalyst center. I have a different graphics card, but it should work well since it is a Radeon series anyway. I followed this help.ubuntu.com guide and solved that.

I'm afraid I do most things in the GUI, and not the CLI, where possible, but here is how I solved a similar problem. Firstly plug in and switch on the monitor (as I'm sure you're doing, but the order is important). Open the Application 'Screen Display' Press the button 'Detect Displays' From there your second monitor should be ready for use, and it is just ...

Have you tried removing all the fglrx stuff like other posts suggest? Your machine should run with the standard generic drivers. Once that works you can try to reinstall the fancy stuff.

I also recently began experiencing desktop freezes in Ubuntu 15.04 when minimizing certain application windows. The freezes always occurred in mid-animation, with Chromium and LibreOffice especially -- it seemed to occur with resource-hungry applications. I experimented with swapfile "swappiness" settings, but it didn't help. Finally, I used Unity Tweak to ...

Have you updated your BIOS? ( http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4714&dl=1&RWD=0#bios ) I just got the 7870K with the F2A88XM-WIFI and ran in to similar problems on 15.04. Then tried OpenSuse 13.2 which failed more gracefully. Then tried Windows 8.1 and still it crashed. After updating the BIOS no crashes yet. fingers crossed ...

The solution was quite simple. BGEE uses its own libaries which seem so be corrupt. I simply deleted the unresponding libaries in the BGEE lib folder so that the programm used the original libs, provided by Ubuntu. In this specific case it was the "libgl.so.1" file. This solution should also apply to similar problems with other application. Hope this ...

Hey bud i think it is a problem with an older motherboard with PCI 1 and trying to install a newer card PCI X 3. What you have to do is a custom install off the drivers and not a express install. if that dont work may have to get a PCI express 2.0 card and still do a express install. The same ploblem happened to me and it was saying error 10 standard ...

I had such message too just after a (re)installation of ATI driver (Catalyst). Try the following: sudo apt-get -f install My system: Graphics: ASUS R7240-SL-2GD3-L (AMD Radeon R7 240) OS: KUbuntu 14.04 Graphics driver: AMD Catalyst™ 15.5 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver

This could be a bad symlink for libGL.so.1. Are you using nvidia drivers? It may be that you want libGL.so.1 to reference nvidia/libGL.so.1. Try running: strace -ooutput glxgears vi output Look for the part where libGL.so.1 is successfully opened (probably /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1). This is the file you want to change. Now find all other libGL.so.1 instances ...

Hello I got the solution is actually simple. Run in terminal the command sudo apt-get autoremove xserver-xorg-video-ati then introduce sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati You will get a notification for restart your computer, restart your computer and your problem has gone.

Case closed. My whole system is screwed. Im going to reinstall Ubuntu 14.10.

Just run in terminal sudo apt-get install mesa-utils and you will get correct output there.

Upgrading to 15.04 might resolve this, as doing a brief check with a LiveUSB running both Ubuntu GNOME and Xubuntu w/ kernel 3.19.* confirms both cards being detected with drivers out of the box.

You are using an open source "radeon" driver for your video adapter. It may not perform well. I suggest installing a proprietary AMD driver. You can do it by running in terminal sudo apt-get install fglrx and reboot. Same task can be done in GUI. You can go to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers and find there drivers for ...

Okay I finally solved it, here's what I did: I couldn't use regular uninstall since it turns out that fglrx that was installed was debian version, so I had to do: dpkg -r fglrx-dev fglrx-amdcccle fglrx sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx_* fglrx-amdcccle* fglrx-dev* then followed the instructions to reinstall the drivers I got from the amd site and now ...

Running version Ubuntu 14.10 on a 1.7 Ghz dual core AMD64 with ATI graphics, my $1000 plus HP Pavillion Blueray laptop was destroyed by heat. It took a year to fry my laptop to the point that it was dead on powerup. It is now junk going to recycling. Thanks for that Ubuntu. I just now replaced it with a new Acer laptop also running 14.10 with 3.2 Ghz quad ...

You need to install xvba-va-driver to get it work with fglrx. Run sudo apt-get install xvba-va-driver With this driver discrete GPU will work with vaapi.

You can return your unity panels by installing CCM and turning on Unity. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager ccsm Then check Unity checkbox.

After a little research it was obvious that xorg.conf doesn't really matter. VAAPI just won't work on a discrete GPU. aticonfig --px-igpu enables it, while aticonfig --px-dgpu kills it.

Delete your /etc/X11/xorg.conf It will make the FGLRX driver to default itself to the HD 7640G after reboot and you'll get working VAAPI with HD 8500M being completely disabled. It seems that "aticonfig --initial" command is unable to generate a proper and valid xorg.conf on a dual-adapter systems regardless of it's additional parameters. PS You may also ...

You can add display-setup-script=<your_xrandr_command> to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf in [seat defaults] section. This way it will start before you login into the system. It also can be done in xorg.conf file, or better in a new file in /use/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/<50-some_name.conf>

Personally, I'd add your command xrandr --addmode DVI-0 1600x900 to list of Startup Applications, or create a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart , so that the command runs on every login.
