Using a screen resolution(1366*768) from the amd config privative driver looks wider than it should be, I don’t know if this is a bug or there’s something that I can do to fix it

my specs:

  • dual graphics amd 6520g 6470m
  • apu amd a6-3420m
  • catalyst omega

here's a pic starting chrome(maximized). Look at the left side and right.


It seems to be an issue with the way Compiz is displaying the window. Try right-clicking in the empty space to the left of the new tab button, then select "Use system title bar and borders".

  • i feel it wider because the pointer can hide at 100% when i place it to the rigth (totally hide) – user284299 Jan 25 '15 at 16:51

OP's original solution:



This a very tough problem with this kind of dual graphics.

AMD proprietary drivers do not support this integrated adapter.

Open source drivers generally do not deal great with AMD dual graphics.

I would suggest to try Ubuntu 15.04. It has the latest opensource graphical stack, that may solve this issue. Or maybe not.
