Firefox on Ubuntu is rendering pages extremely slowly despite having a decent connection. After some googling, I found out that this is probably due to my not having installed my grapic card driver. I attempted to install the default driver, but that didn't work. So I tried installing the one that you can download in the Ubuntu Software Center, but that didn't help either. Finally, I downloaded the "AMD Catalyst™ 13.12 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver". I may have run it last night, but I couldn't swear on it. Anyway, after trying to install this driver I get this in response:
"a previous install of the fglrx driver has been detected. Please uninstall the older version before installing this version. Optionally run the installer with --force option to overwrite the existing driver. Forcing install is not recommended. See /user/share/ati/fglrx-install.log for more details.".
After checking /user/share/ati/fglrx-install.log, it tells me the exact same thing. I ran this .run the easy way, by just double clicking it—not by running it in the terminal. How could I either a)uninstall the previous version and try installing the driver again, or b) use the --force command in the terminal? Thanks in advance~
