After installing Ubuntu search in system settings for 'Additional Drivers' or something like that. In that panel you can search for missing drivers. Often nVidia or ATI drivers are not open source and their drivers must be manually installed. See that link 'https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD'

Just fo to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional drivers and install suggested driver from there. Or run in terminal sudo apt-get install fglrx This is not an Ubuntu way to download video drivers from sites. But sometimes proprietary drivers have bugs and incompatibilities. If system does not load GUI, you do not have to re-install. ...

Jorge First, I recommend you to update ubuntu to a new version, it could be 15.04 because the drivers have better support. Then go to the terminal and do What @10robinho told you. Because that command install the most recent drivers.

There is no proprietary standalone driver for this video adapter in linux. Open source driver is already installed. The only thing you can do is to upgrade graphical stack for the latest available version for Ubuntu 14.04. In your case you have it already. You can upgrade to 3.19 kernel. It has a built in radeon module, which may be better. It can be done ...

This does not mean that video driver is missing. Otherwise you would not be able to use your system in GUI mode. If you run sudo apt-get install mesa-utils you will see more details on your graphics adapter. But it won't improve anything in your system

Depending on how you installed the fglrx drivers sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh or sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx_* fglrx-amdcccle* fglrx-dev* Even though this is not directly Ubuntu related, the solution is probably the same on any linux distro (in the first case) and on any debian based linux distro (in the second case).

You can install Ubuntu "beside" your Windows installation. There will be an option to install this way. But before you install Ubuntu make sure that Windows is properly shut down. By default Windows 8 is hibernated instead. You can use open source or proprietary video drivers. Proprietary drivers can be installed from System Settings -> Software & ...

You have a laggy system because you have a lot of swap being used. You have around 512 MB Swap Being Used. You seem to have a Standard Spinning Hard Disk which means swapping will cause your System to Go Crazy Slow. I had the same issue with my laptop I did the below. 1) Reduce the Swappiness to 10. Use this Wiki https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq ...

Sadly, the HD 4xxx series does not have particularly good power saving features in the Open Source driver today, let alone when this question was written. Unless the card was designed to run with the fan off, it will not be able to run at all without it. Additionally, most AMD cards contain firmware that regulates the fan. I would not recommend forcing ...

You may not want to hear this but if you enjoy a lot of Windows-only software and need it to perform as well as it would on Windows then dual-booting - having an actual bare-metal Windows installation - is the best way to achieve this. Any kind of emulation layer, and Wine is an emulation layer despite what people say the name stands for these days, has the ...

Open System Settings. Click on Software & Updates. Click on the additional drivers tab. You should then be able to select another graphics card driver and click Apply Changes.

Using mesa this should work, but i do recommend to upgrade to the latest ubuntu release or use the updated oibaf drivers PPA and probably also update the kernel using the latest from here, but both mesa and the kernel have improved a lot in the last few years for the 3D support and fixed many problems Finally check this for the direct usage of each GPU

You can follow the official Ubuntu how-to guide. In short - open your terminal and type: sudo apt-get install fglrx Then generate a fresh xorg.conf, before you reboot: sudo amdconfig --initial Reboot.

The easiest way to install drivers is from System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers. You can choose one of suggested drivers there. In your case to fix the issue, run in the terminal sudo apt-get install -f If this does not help, run sudo apt-get install fglrx and post the output to your question. You can test if a proprotory ...

First check your card hwC0D0 or hwC1D0: In my laptop hwC0D0 is for intel hdmi and hwC1D0 is for realtek alc663. You can know it with hdajackretask first is hwC0D0. Modules in opensuse(not ubuntu) are snd_hda_intel not snd-hda-intel. So if you are not in ubuntu "options snd_hda_intel model=asus-mode4" is correct and not "options snd-hda-intel ...

Try adding vm.swappiness=0 to the end of /etc/sysctl.conf and reboot or set swappiness to zero. This way you will not hit disk swap until you run out of RAM. You can also try disabling Akonadi: https://userbase.kde.org/Akonadi#Disabling_the_Akonadi_subsystem http://www.my-guides.net/en/guides/linux/how-to-disable-nepomuk-strigi-and-akonadi-in-kde4 ...

The second or third options. fglrx driver is the stable version of AMD's proprietary driver. fglrx-updates driver will be possibly less stable, but will get you driver updates sooner. Either is better than the open source Xorg driver.

Geode-GX are processors from 2002. I think that you should use i386 architecture.

In case somebody finds this via Google: The 6900 series does not allow for HDMI in a resolution above 1080p. It worked on my Windows machine because the drivers I used there were old and buggy. The drivers I used on Linux were not so it didn't allow me to go above 1080p (as it was supposed to).

Version of OpenGL also depends on your GPU model. To see the supported version of OpenGL you should run from terminal: glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version" For example my Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Trinity [Radeon HD 7600G] returns the following: OpenGL version string: 4.4.13374 Compatibility Profile Context 15.20.1013 So proprietary fglrx driver ...

For mesa, This is the best documentation right now in the web. The quick howto is to update the drivers and kernel, the more recent the better. If possible, update the distro or use oibaf PPA.

Possible solution to your problem could be Open the System Settings Select Software& Updates From the new Popped-Up window, Select Additional Drivers and hopefully your system will recognize the required drivers. Good Luck!

There are no proprietary drivers for this GPU. Open drivers are already installed. So there is nothing to install.

You can edit your post to fix your mistake and, by the way, it's fglrx-amdcccle. Now that that's done, yes, it will work fine. fglrx-amdcccle and fglrx-amdcccle-updates are the same package, but the updates one will have more frequent updates. Also, fglrx-amdcccle is only the Catalyst Control Center, not the actual AMD driver. If you want that, you need to ...

Do I need Drivers? To run hardware you need drivers. If yes where do I get drivers from? The installer will pick all the drivers it can pick that your hardware supplies. So as long as the hardware is supported you yourself do not need to worry about drivers. Contrary to Windows Linux uses generic drivers; so we have 1 driver to rule lots of ...

I cant see a command, but this answer may help. Quoted here. For Nvidia based cards of all varieties I would have gone straight to the Nvidia website rather than the reseller (EVGA, XFX or whoever) and checked out the specifications of the card there.

As @Eliah pointed out, this is happening because you are downloading an incorrect file by using wget. This can be confirmed by comparing the downloaded files MD5 checksum to the one listed on the AMD checksum reference page. The archive downloaded using wget will have a different checksum than the one listed on that page. If you download ...

I'm guessing this is a permission issue. Try running the command as sudo: sudo echo low > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile Or change the permissions on the power_profile file allowing people to write to this file.
