comment Is there an alternative to k3dsurf in 12.10?
Thanks! I'll take a look at that thread. With Ubuntu 13.10 there was some change to (I'm guessing) the way Qt3 was handled that made K3DSurf look horrible, so a replacement that functions properly would be amazing.

comment No HDMI Audio on Radeon 6770 connected via HDMI to my TV
I should add that I have the proprietary AMD driver installed to enable HDMI audio without changing any boot flags, and the driver was left unchanged by the upgrade.

comment Connection mystery with ssh
Thanks. I've sent my current IP address to the guy running our server to see if it's been blacklisted. The only guess we've come up with so far is that I was assigned a new dynamic IP address from my ISP, and they gave me one that was previously banned for port scans or repeated login failures, since everything worked fine until a few days ago.

comment Gameplay/openGL performance issues with AMD APU
Thanks. There is no watermark using the latest beta drivers from the AMD website, so I'll stick with that. Performance seems pretty good so far.

comment Gameplay/openGL performance issues with AMD APU
The control centre installed to /usr/lib/fglrx/bin, so I can run it from there. Presumably I could run it directly by creating a link in /usr/bin but with other versions this isn't necessary.

So the end result: fglrx-updates from the Ubuntu repositories worked fine, except for the annoying watermark. So far so good with the 13.8 beta, except for the fact that the control centre didn't seem to install properly.

comment Gameplay/openGL performance issues with AMD APU
OK, thanks. Things seem to be working all right with the beta driver. I built .deb packages first and then installed, to make it easier to remove later if necessary. For some reason with the beta drivers the Catalyst control centre doesn't show up properly (I used the same steps to install the non-beta driver from AMD) but other than that it's all right.

Thanks, although it's the driver from the AMD website that was giving me the problems. I installed it as per the method you suggest. I'm trying the latest beta now to see if that works any better.
