I agree that it is very little memory in this day and age. So you may have trouble with Ubuntu. Try the lighter ones and see how you get on. If you are keen to stay with Ubuntu though upgrade to the 512 and try running the live version from USB or cd. This will give you a good indication of how it will run and toy can go from there.

256MB RAM is a very little amount of RAM in these days. It's hardly enough to run any kind of modern GUI. Lubuntu is probably the most lightweight distro of Ubuntu, using the LXDE desktop environment. If you're open to try another distro, there's always Puppy Linux, which needs very little resources

Possibly this known bug. In compiz config, try unchecking unredirect fullscreen windows and see if it makes any difference. This can be done by opening CompizConfig Settings Manager and clicking on Composite and then the appropriate toggle. Also, go back and select OpenGL and make sure Sync to VBlank is enabled. If that doesn't help, make sure page ...

You can also try this: dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ then setsid unity

You might want to run a lighter desktop even if you can fix the glitching. Mate is pretty good for low-spec setups. You don't need another distro, just add mate to your existing setup. They have some fairly good documentation on getting setup. http://wiki.mate-desktop.org/download

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 ...

A proprietary driver is not installed. You can install it by selecting it in Additional Drivers. What is "AMD graphics driver(2GB)" is unclear.

The problem could be a driver bug. To exclude it you could run the game with Mesa software rendering enabled, just set the variable LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 when starting the game, and see if the problem persist. If this is the case (though if that didn't work too), you could either try upgrading to latest unstable Mesa drivers by adding Xorg edgers PPA ...

I think it is not Intel adapter crashing, but the problem is with the open source Nvidia driver. Install the correct driver by sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 Reboot and switch to Nvidia sudo prime-select nvidia Then log off and on. But I suspect that Intel will work OK too.

I believe that opening the Additional Drivers app and installing the proprietary NVIDIA driver will automatically make the NVIDIA card be used for everything. Once the installation is done and you have rebooted, you can check by opening the NVIDIA X-server Settings app (not exact name, sorry) and going to the PRIME Profiles section.

I found some article where it is said that drivers for M2XX works perfectly even for M3XX. Anyways, having the same card tried sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates and got it working. Other methods including download of deb packages from http://amd.com wasn't working for me, tried packages fglrx-core (80MB cca) together with fglrx (50MB cca) and had black ...

Do not install bumblebee, it provides an outdated solution for NVIDIA graphics chips with Optimus support. You already have a solution for switching between the intel and NVIDIA graphics installed.

If you don't have fglrx installed, then you should install it. It's the proprietary driver for AMD graphics cards, so you'll have much better performance with it installed. Open the Additional Drivers app (search it) and select the fglrx option. I'm not quite sure what this would have to do with Wine packages, but this is the answer to what you've currently ...

One answer to solve this is to simply uninstall LTS 14.04.3 and install the old LTS 12.04.5 version of Ubuntu as the problems do not exist on the old version of Ubuntu. I'm not happy with this answer but for now until 14 works as expected or someone posts a better fix I will use 12.

It seems all the tools you mentioned are high-end graphic manipulation tools. These are not supported by Ubuntu.

There seems to be a fundamental problem with synchronization of the Intel and Nvidia video components in (certain?) laptops. See http://askubuntu.com/questions/tagged/tearing for many proposed solution to the issue. Also, the xorg-edgers ppa has an alternative, sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa which should be the latest drivers.

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 ...

I had the same problem - you most likely have a setting in the BIOS that says Intel-graphics-acceleration = Enabled. Apparently on some motherboards this is set by default, and you have to set it to Disabled to not conflict, and get past the low-graphics mode error. Set Intel-graphics-acceleration to disabled if you use the Nvidia for output, and it should ...

Didn't work after install and reboot for me, until I turned off Intel graphics acceleration in BIOS. Apparently that option conflicts if you just use a dedicated Nvidia card.

From the sounds of it you may have in inadvertently tampered with the linux-image related files inside of /boot. I know there was a security update yesterday (21-1-2016) for 15.10 which included a patchlevel update (4.2.0-25) to the 4.2 kernel (the default kernal for Wily) to address the key ring exploit.

The Atom™ line of CPU's with the integrated Cedarview graphics are rather pathetic in terms of performance. I've used my Acer D270 netbook with 15.04 and it functions but I've never enjoyed the experience. (I'd rather use an I3 any day of the week). I would agree with @bodhi.zazen that moving to lubuntu or xubuntu would provide a far more acceptable ...

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 ...

It may be a good idea to do a clean reinstall of your OS. AMD video drivers are finnicky and require a strict procedure to install and update.

How about trying this? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD#Manually_installing_Catalyst_13.4 Do it step by step so you know you are doing it correctly.
