I had the same error. The following worked for me: removed the steam package again sudo apt-get purge steam removed the proprietary AMD driver (fglrx) in the software center installed the steam package again in terminal using sudo dpkg -i ./steam_latest.deb started steam again in the terminal with command steam the client started und upgraded itself ...

Your output indicates the below packages have unmet dependencies: fglrx-amdcccle xvba-va-driver Which means APT tried to install the above packages but failed half way, because some other required packages are not available in your system. Therefore we need to remove the above packages before doing anything else. sudo dpkg --purge --force-all ...

I had an underscanning issue (big black borders), although all of the information about my monitor was displayed correctly. I changed the scan setting under Catalyst Display Manager > DTV and everything is fine. I am not using a digital tv, but the result is what counts.

Which driver are you using? The ATI one from the ubuntu repo, the ATI one from the website, or the open source radeon driver?

The Ubuntu Radeon driver will work with your video card.

Alright. I don't think it is supposed to show up at all. Apparently the version of catalyst I am trying to install is simply incompatible with ubuntu versions above 12.04. Which is not a problem since Gallium still supports that video driver.

Try choose language and "Try use Ubuntu without install"(or similar). Boot Ubuntu in Live mode and install Ubuntu from this mode.

Well it depends on how much RAM your Dell contains. If it contains 2gb or less, than go with 32bit. But if it contains more than 2gb, say 4gb, than go for 64bit. Minimal Drivers I think they will be installed automatically. Have a good Ubuntu day :D

I solved this by using an external device, like a pc controller with analog sticks, then mapped the mouse directions to the right analog stick, and you could map left and right mouse click to two buttons using a free program Joy To Key. At least that way, when you turn off mouse integration in virtual box, you can move the pointer around with the ...

For Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10 and 13.04 the AMD Catalyst PPA (ppa:makson96/fglrx) provides AMD Catalyst Legacy 13.1 (fglrx 8.97.100.7) drivers for Radeon HD 2xxx - 4xxx for Ubuntu. To install the Catalyst Legacy 13.1 graphics driver, run the following commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:makson96/fglrx sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get ...

This works for me when Ubuntu Mate 14.10 corrupts my mouse cursor. It doesn't require a restart. Ctrl+Alt+F2 Ctrl+Alt+F7 I always get this bug when dragging an image with Eye of Mate image viewer, and a TTY switch makes it go away. Restarting also works, but changing the cursor in the appearance settings does not.

I just figured it out - I disabled overscan in my TV setup menu.

Last year I built an AMD A6-6400K Home Theater PC (HTPC) with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The A6 has a dual port GPU processor built in. It worked great until an Ubuntu update on Dec 12, 2014. I had been using the X-org X-server wrappers (open source, tested) until recently. But these wrappers don't work anymore. Now I am using the latest AMD proprietary device ...

My best guess would be that this is caused by the discrepancy in VRAM. The first GPU (Radeon HD 6450/7450/8450 / R5 230 OEM) has 1GB of VRAM, while the second GPU (Radeon HD 3450) has only 512MB. When you put together multiple GPUs, the VRAM doesn't add up, it is the same as the GPU with the lowest RAM. Essentially, you're just boosting your processing ...

Compiz is an eye-candy, but for improved performance I always recommend installing CompizConfig Settings Manager ( which you can find in the Software Center ), and tweaking the settings somewhat: disable animations and use fast texture filter under OpenGL settings. Among other things, get rid of start up services that you don't need. Using a different ...

What is going on? Most of your problems can be summed up with one statement: AMD's closed source driver is awful. And the open source one isn't very much better. It's probably better than the Nvidia open driver but it still has plenty of flaws and spotty hardware support. Often finding an acceptable outcome means manually balancing driver and kernel ...

Your hardware seems powerful enough. Mine was less powerful (Core2 Duo E8400 @ 3 GHz, GeForce GT 8800) and still ran quite well and responsive (outside of the few occasions in which I wanted to crunch some numbers, compile large pieces of software, or play modern video games). If the open source Radeon driver aren't enough for you (e. g. for modern 3D video ...

Try to get your 3dcard working properly. You might have to find a driver from a third party as Radeon might not have a driver for linux, if that doesn't work i know Unity doesn't play nice with certain chip sets. It can have a hard time processing certain graphics - so if you can't get your 3dcard working properly move to gnome-session-fallback or XFCE or ...

I wrote a script to change the background with a gnome schema. I found out that this script was causing the low graphics error. I now just overwritten the default ubuntu wallpaper which does the same and which gives me no errors. Kr, Joeri

Open source drivers don't use the hardware to its fullest capacity, therefore your games are going to run slower. You should use the proprietary drivers for your GPU. They're maintained by AMD themselves; only they can write a driver that uses the GPU to its fullest potential. Additionally, Wine provides rather rough compatibility for Windows applications. ...

One thing you can to do to begin troubleshooting is disable the quiet splash boot options. See this answer: http://askubuntu.com/a/477828/366932 Once you do this, you'll see system messages fly past as the system boots. When things freeze, take a look at the last few lines displayed -- that will hopefully give you some hint about where things are going ...

The intel-linux-graphics-driver is probably the easiest way to install the correct intel linux graphics driver. This package is provided by intel's Open Source Technology Center To summarize thier instructions: Download the latest deb file from the downloads page. The latest installer, intel-graphics-installer-linux-1.0.7 should work for Ubuntu 14.04. ...

Got this issue resolved. Installed the driver "linux-amd-catalyst-14.6-beta-v1.0-jul11" provided by AMD.

Ok I did a lot of gaming with(long back though) wine/playonlinux, on Ubuntu with my onboard HD 4250, the only issue I face was the characters in some games were not drawn, they were visible as black figures. No FPS drops or anything as such. The key is getting the right drivers with correct xorg dependences. Also AMD has been a little slow in maintaining ...

WINE acts as a software layer between game and the operating system, thereby reducing speed. The problem is bound to exist. Only very high end cards can work well. I suggest you try out steam games on linux, see if LOL and GW2 are available for linux. I run CS:CZ, CS:GO on ubuntu via steam and they run smoothly.

I had problems with a very similar graphics card (HD5540D), I think I never make it work 100%. When I installed some drivers fglrx and xorg I think, had a lot of problems because a lot of times wouldn't boot up Ubuntu. Image worked pretty good with vga (didn't test it with hdmi or dvi), and I got the sound out apart with a normal jack in the rear panel of my ...

This problem has been reported originally on WINEDB app site of Bugzilla with bug 37347. However, it later turned out that the culprit was described here. Then finally a open bounty was placed on this most unnerving problem. The problem was indeed solved and put into Master. Thank the happy people of the Linux community who did find a solution. It's a ...

Richard. I seem to have made it to a step beyond you on this issue. This problem seems most prevalent among users who have hybrid graphics: integrated Intel card for power conservation and an AMD card for performance. To get past this problem, I found a hacked version of my HP 2XXX series BIOS, by a guy named Donovan. The hacked version allowed me to choose ...

Not sure what your talking about, but, maybe this will help: f.lux is a computer program developed by Michael and Lorna Herf. It adjusts a computer display's color temperature according to its location and time of day, based on a user specified set of longitude and latitude geographical coordinates, a ZIP Code, or a city name. Install by typing this ...

Don't use an overly bright wallpaper for your desktop. Select a less bright wallpaper, like the default Ubuntu wallpaper for better contrast between the open window(s) and the wallpaper. Don't autohide the Launcher so that it will be there when you need it. Only put the most frequently used icons in the Launcher so you won't have to search through too ...
