First, the goal of the sensor is to detect high and dangerous temperature and not to report an exact temperature. The sensors are less accurate for lower temperatures. Psensor is using the lm-sensor lib to retrieve the AMD CPU temperature. BTW, if the BIOS is reporting a different temperature, it should indicate an issue on lm-sensor side or the need of a ...

This is probably due to your graphics card not being compatible with Ubuntu right out of the box. Try removing your graphics card and running on off the integrated graphics to see if that’s the problem. Also make sure your usb drive is prepared with AMD64 Ubuntu not Intel x86 Ubuntu. The problem is that you would need to have some sort of display port on ...

Using the latest FGLRX release from AMD ( AMD Catalyst™ 14.12 Proprietary Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 12/8/2014), the system still hangs at least once per day using a R7-260, so I downgraded back to the open source driver. Your results may differ for the 6750. You also mention re-installing Ubuntu, which shouldn't be necessary. If you can get a desktop, you can ...

Does the Display / Screen / Monitors settings page (whatever it's called in your DE) have any options to change resolution, & do they work? And according to xrandr there you should have 4 resolutions available, have you tried changing it with xrandr, maybe with xrandr -s 800x600 or whichever you want, with/without -r 60? For a different mode, not ...

I ran 'additional drivers' (invoked via Super-A, additional...) and selected the proprietary drivers (fglrx-updates) that showed up after a few seconds. It took a minute or so to complete but the progress bar limped along from time to time. Now I can resume. Researching it wasn't easy perhaps because it does seem to have been a recurring problem over ...

I had the same result, but I got it to work. Instead of the Ubuntu packages, get the generic "Linux (32-bit & 64-bit)" which is 148 MB zip file. Unzip and then sudo ./amd-driver-installer-14.501.1003-x86.x86_64.run. Choose to build packages for Trusty. It takes several minutes and doesn't seem to be doing anything, but just wait for it. Then when I ...

I'm not sure how you're adjusting the brightness, but using xrandr, may yield different results. As in xrandr --output VGA-0 --brightness 1.1 or 0.8 for darker, etc (see xrandr's output for your output name, maybe HDMI-0 or so) [Q showed up in "Unanswered Questions", may help someone with a different brightness option. Probably will never get a reply from ...

I had the very same problem installing Lubuntu on a new media center PC I built recently with an embedded A4-5000. I had to download PulseAudio in order to change the default audio output (if I recall it was trying to do SPDIF) to HDMI out. Why it does not do this automatically I don't know. I also had the crackling noise you mentioned when I finally got my ...

I also have the same graphics card - ATI Radeon HD5650M. I have installed the package fglrx-updates and am facing no issues whatsoever and can also play games like Left For Dead 2 on Steam with good frame rates. There is no such thing as HD 5xxx series not being supported by fglrx-updates as mentioned by @forthaction. Try reinstalling the package by ...

Warning: this may break your computer. Make sure you have important things backed up, and a ubuntu usb on hand. So what you're asking is how to install the drivers. You're at the right settings.

As mentioned in the Update the problem was a dirty fan and cleaning it brought the PC back to normal temperatures.

VMWare places it's own video driver into Ubuntu - the ATI driver that you added will not help. In the VMWare menu for settings on your virtual machine, there should be a display option under the hardware tab, and in the display settings an 'Accelerate 3D graphics' checkbox.
