fglrx should solve the problem sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates-core fglrx-updates

I managed to setup with slight modification of above instructions which I got in this nvidia forum 1 While installing NVIDIA drivers nvidia-libgl(or nvidia-gl) overwrites mesa-libgl. This results AMD GPU based GUI to broke. In order to prevent this I installed nvidia with --no-opengl-files option. sudo ./NVIDI* --no-opengl-files However later when ...

D'oh. The answer can be found in the fitlet wiki. The newer fglrx driver (15.200) seems to not support the card, which is a bug. Thus, you have to use fglrx 13.350. This is troublesome with ubuntu 14.04*.2*, since that includes a newer xorg-abi which this old driver isn't compatible with anymore. For me, I could work around this issue by using instructions ...

1 G of ram is not enough to run ubuntu 14.04 here are the minimal system requirements you may consider lighter distros like Lubuntu or Xubuntu.

The documentation for Ubuntu tells you what hardware specs you need in order to install and run Ubuntu. Since Ubuntu requires less RAM than Windows, you probably have enough RAM. Personally, I would not keep Windows and instead simply replace it entirely with Ubuntu since you may run into issues with the drive partitioning. If you absolutely need to run ...

I never found a solution to this, I have ATI/AMD dual graphics, and have the same issues, xserver breaks after installing proprietary drivers from repositories, as well as from the ATI/AMD website.I even attempted updating to kernel 4.1, but to no avail. My only solution has been to downgrade to Ubuntu 14.04.

You need to install AMD video drivers. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates and reboot.

Install the driver by running in terminal sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates Or you can do the same in GUI. System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers.

you should install proprietary drivers from Radeon, thermal settings are highly customisable in Catalyst. also what other GPU you have? if it`s NVidia then you can manually assign it to anything your XServer use via NVidia XServer settings. also check this question, it should contain some info which can help you:

As mentioned in the comments, it's not possible to run a 64 bit binary on a 32 bit system. However, a 32 bit build is coming soon, most likely with the next public beta. So just hang on! ;-)

After many tries and errors I reached a conclusion. Nowadays desktop distoros based on Linux are not compatible enough with all the possible combinations of hardware. I strongly believe that one day a Linux distro with the compatibility of Windows, ease of Mac, speed and power of open source kernel will be made. But today is not the day, so the only ...

I've struggled with the problem and found a very simple solution. I have ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS running on my machine. The solution is: Xdiagnose Use Xdiagnose from the Dashboard. (Xdiagnose is an analysis tool for troubleshooting X.org problems, and this is what you are experiencing. Enable options under debug Search for and launch Xdiagnose, ...

Solved Using 14.04. Working perfectly now. edit My bad. Details of the solution: When booting with AMD proprietary drivers on a new Radeon card, the system hangs at a screen saying "Starting Version 219" There are quite a few posts about this issue, and a lot of conflicting answers, everything from "It is not an issue, it is only cosmetical" to "It ...

Install fglrx-updates from additional driver menu. Start AMD Catalyst Control Center as administrator from Ubuntu menu. Go into Display manager -> Glitch remover function (look screen) and turn it on. I stooped seeing glitches when I did that.

Wow!!That must be really 'hot'! Sometimes, it could be a process that is using quite a lot of CPU. But, because the fan needs to cool the computer, you could probably hear your fan right? If you just can get to install Ubuntu, it might stop doing that. But you must be thinking, there has to be something increasing temperature! And it might do it all the ...

Looks like your question has already been answered: No sound through HDMI out, 13.04 A year or two ago a friend and I built a midrange gaming PC on similar hardware. The kernel rollback mentioned in the link took care of not getting audio over the HDMI port and one or two other niggles. What exactly are you seeing that makes you think there's a driver ...

I was experiencing freezing using 15.04. I tried the additional drivers and it did not fix. Then booted up after a freeze, went straight into the software center and simply installed all the available Nvidia software through the software center. After that, great performance everything worked nicely. Set server preference to performance, not high quality.

Yes if the server generates or, for instance, re-sizes images. Software that uses, or could use, the existing graphic card for such tasks, is not unheard of. Surely, this depends a lot on what kind of software, what kind of GPU, is the suitable driver available and things the like.

Graphics cards help with: CUDA/OpenCL style workloads (eg bitcoin mining) 3D rendering. You might be rendering stuff on demand. Most cards can help with video decoding but this applies to many IGPs too. Some cards have hardware to help with video encoding. The quality is usually a lot poorer and this is still under development. ffmpeg can use nvenc ...

Now fglrx driver 15.7 also known as 15.20 is in Ubuntu repositories for trusty, vivid and wily releases. It can be installed by running sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates and it was there some time before AMD officially released Catalyst 15.7.

This solution worked for me : sudo apt-get purge "fglrx.*" # remove proprietary drivers sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf # remove old Xserver config reinstall open source drivers sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:amd64 libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64 sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg # ...

Well, I had the same problem some time ago. The only way I could fix this is turning off CPU integrated video in BIOS. I have Intel Core i5. As I remember, there is a problem in working in gybrid mode, when it tries to use integrated processor under low load. So enter BIOS and try to turn integrated graphics off.

Some years ago we had a machine that did the same thing. It was as if it ran at a tenth of it's actual clock speed. When we used the recovery kernel it was nice and fast, but it only recognised 1GB of memory. After compiling many many kernels and trying all sorts of things we eventually struck on the real problem: There is a bug in some intel chipsets where ...

Sure, you can install it on ubuntu 15.04 I have intalling it and it works. make sure when building .deb package use: chmod it (run as programs) then use --buildpkg Ubuntu/vivid wiki.cchtml.com still doesn't providing vivid installation instruction yet. (you can use on utopic installation procedure with change above)

The AMD Radeon R5 M240 seems to require at least Kernel 3.15 and Mesa 10.3. So you have the following options: Update to Ubuntu 14.10 or newer. Install a fresh Trusty point release 14.04.2 or Update your kernel and mesa with LTSEnablementStack, e.g. (using aptitude) sudo aptitude install linux-generic-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic ...

I had screen tearing issues also. Vsync didn't help since the problem was with OpenGL. Solved the problem by switching to Lubuntu, which uses OpenBox instead of OpenGL. For more info, see my post in this this thread: Have tearing (no Vsync) in movies (Nvidia proprietary driver)

This problem is caused by the Steam's old bundled version of libstdc++. Possible solutions: (from https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/3273) Redirect steam runtime's symlink for libstdc++.so.6 to the systems. Replace XX with the version of your system's libstdc++. You need to update this when libstdc++ is updated. $ ln -sf ...

I have a laptop with the same APU, I stick with the open-source ATI driver. You'd need catalyst only for "serious" games that won't run well on such a APU anyway. Also, ATI drivers have always been very buggy, both in Linux and in Windows! With nvidia, things are different: the open-source driver is quite immature and has limitations but does its basic 2D ...

I use Xubuntu with an ATI Radeon HD 8600M, which has gave me several problems when I use the propietary driver. I have posted several question here regarding the issue (click my username to see the questions). They might help you. In any case, it depends a lot of what you want to do. For example, I don't play videogames but I do use software which requires ...

Personally i keep 3 drivers installed (1 canonical and 2 proprietary) and switch between them depending on what i need at the moment. usually linux works best with Xorg driver, and also when you upgrade your linux distributive you can often run into big lags with proprietary drivers(like black screen, or X don`t starts at all after upgrade), so i switch to ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...
