I have been using
VESA:HONDO (AMD graphics drivers) for some time but Chrome GPU process kept crashing (it was sand-boxed). Therefore now I'm on
Gallium 0.4 on AMD PALM drivers which very nicely proved to be friends with Chrome.
Actually this would interest everybody having these GPU crashes and for stability I recommend
xorg instead of
fglrx. No crashes at all :) .
But now I can not set brightness level by using special
fn function keys on my notebook. Ubuntu receives request and displays the change but that is strict formal. I don't know about other settings for that, so I'm always on full-eyes-melting-sun-level-brightness setting.
Ubuntu 14.04 x64 on HP 655 Processor: AMD E2-1800 APU Graphics: Radeon HD 7340
fglrx build on my own Ubuntu, very long time spent on preparing, debugging etc.; finally get it to build and install but again had Chrome GPU process crashing...
What does not work:
Option "RegistryDwords") & reboot
- change brightness via
xbacklight -set x%
- manage special keys via
