You should be able to access the command line by pressing CTRL+ALT+F6. (or anything between F1 & F8) they are all TTY's, the desktop usually runs on TTY7 (CTRL+ALT+F7). do sudo apt-get remove for anything you installed before reboot. and cross your fingers.

Got it to work by installing the xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu package

Apparently I didn't use the proprietary drivers correctly. This link solved my problem.

You can switch them this way: sudo aticonfig --px-igpu to the integrated adapter. sudo aticonfig --px-dgpu to the descrete adapter. Log off and log on after that. You can see the status by aticonfig --pxl You can also switch the adapters using Catalyst Control Center GUI utility. Note: This should work on a supported Ubuntu version (14.04 or ...

Try disabling compositing in the window manager settings or x server config file. If you don't need the fancy effects this should not be an issue. In xfce it's in settings manager -> window manager tweaks -> compositor tab. In xorg.conf: Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Disable" EndSection I had the exact same problem, every tool reported ...

You could install thermald if you are concerned about the CPU overheating. Thermald will monitor thermal zones and will turn on various passive and active cooling mechanisms if it detects an overheating system. To install, use: sudo apt-get install thermald

Your screenshot is displaying repeating patterns of video artifacts which are characteristic of video RAM artifacts. If the RAM in your graphics card is failing, sometimes just a small fraction of the RAM goes bad while the rest of the RAM continues to work properly. This can result in a screen that looks like a fraction of the screen has glitchy, repeating ...

I'm running mint 17.3, and the (ubuntu) package fglrx-updates version 2:15.200-0ubuntu0.5 with associated dependecies and recommended packages are really working well (as in fabulously well). Despite the info on the amd site According to which only r5 m2xx is supported), this driver does work for the R5 M330. At least on my laptop. (hp, i7, r5 m330).

I'm using this driver on Mint 17.3 with a Radeon HD 7450, so I don't think it's the device but rather the version of Ubuntu and AMD not updating their workspace often enough. fglrxinfo: display: :0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 7400 Series OpenGL version string: 4.5.13416 ...

I know this is not a real answer to your question regarding "how to tune my resolution" But did you try to install the driver from AMD side? AMD Driver You should install first the "Minimal Video Driver for Graphics Accelerators" and afterwards the "Video Driver for Graphics Accelerators" As a Alternativ you can check if you can use a other connection to ...

Check out (type as url): about:support This should give you info on supported features (like hardware rendering) You can try to disable/uncheck hardware acceleration in Firefox. It may feel counter intuitive but has often worked for me. You can find it here: Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when ...

Definitely it is not a good sign. Try to reduce it. On running virtual machines in any laptops (using i3) will probably overheat your laptop and also makes your fan's speed to increase to improve the cooling rate. To solve this issue the driver which you installed is not the solution. Because it may cause your fan to undesired effects. Your problem may be ...

If fglrx is not installed, you are most liekly using the Xorg driver. You can verify this with modinfo radeon | grep author If it returns Gareth Hughes, Keith Whitwell, others. you are using the Xorg opensource driver. You have to try which works better, the Xorg driver or fglrx. Simply use the one you experience to work better. If fglrx really ...

First of all, this is a common problem with the 'free upgrade' to Windows 10. It's near impossible to get it back to Windows 7/8, and in those cases where you can do so, it is only for a time until Microsoft demands you upgrade to 10 again. One way to cool down the machine would be to use CPU throttling to bring the CPU speed into spec instead of running ...

Unfortunately there is no way to install proprietary drivers without risking changes to xorg.conf . Trying to use your integrated graphics will only complicate things further. You may want to try a headless linux / server edition and just forget about the integrated graphics if mining is really your main goal. Unity is known to take its toll on light weight ...

ACPI PCC Probe faild is probably a harmless warning message. *ERROR* rv770_set_sw_state failed is bug #1319589. Some comments there report that upgrading to kernel 4.4 helped, so try that. If you still have problems with a 4.4 kernel then ask upstream on the open freedesktop.org bug or open a new bug report there.

There is a command line interface to the amdconfig utility. The command for overclocking is as follows: amdconfig --od-enabled To get the valid clock range, and current closk speed amdconfig --odgc To set the top clock speed use the following command: amdconfig --odsc [Corespeed],[Memoryspeed] To set the currently set clocks to be used on normal ...

There are no proprietary AMD drivers for this adapter that support modern Ubuntu releases. The only option for this graphics adapter is to use open source driver.

Why would you want to install such an old driver? It would probably be better to open the KDE settings or search for "Additional drivers" and simply select the newest AMD proprietary/binary driver from the list. Ubuntu will then install it automatically and switch the open source driver to the proprietary one after rebooting. I assume by "new to the linux ...

So far, I tried: sudo apt-get purge "fglrx.*" and the options were not greyed out anymore. I chose fglrx and it seems to work now.

I've got exactly the same problem as you do. Installing the proprietary drivers, like the Internet suggested, didn't help one bit (it caused even more problems). I've found that this problem only occurs when using HDMI + DVI, not when using HDMI + DisplayPort. So, that kinda solves it for me..

I would try actually installing the most recent Xubuntu or Lubuntu. There have been some updates to the kernel for radeon graphics cards. Running from a USB on an older machine can cause it to run slow but once installed it might work better. According the the wiki and this page your card is (mostly) fully supported on the open source driver. As long as ...
