So I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 from the Windows installer (dual-boot). Ubuntu seems to boot fine until it gets to the login screen. There are small graphical glitches in the screen and whenever I move the mouse, it becomes even worse (I can barely see anything on the screen). I run it on a mini-laptop with AMD Athlon 64 processor and ATI Radeon graphics. It seems to be a problem with my drivers, but I am really new to Ubuntu and Linux and I can't find how to solve my problem (I know very little about the terminal since I used cygwin for SSH communications with a server). It is not connected to internet (I have a wifi, but I can't get Ubuntu to connect to it).


I had the same thing until I installed the 13.2 beta drivers.


  • thanks,but how do I install it since I can't use the graphic inteface? Can I simply install it from Windows? – Cedric Feb 6 '13 at 5:08
