I'm new to Ubuntu. I hve update all my driver after installation and all of the driver was enable except for the graphic driver. I'm using Compaq Presario cq40. Here are the details:

                description: VGA compatible controller
                product: RS780M/RS780MN [Radeon HD 3200 Graphics]
                vendor: ATI Technologies Inc
                physical id: 5
                bus info: pci@0000:01:05.0
                version: 00
                width: 32 bits
                clock: 33MHz
                capabilities: vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom
                configuration: driver=fglrx_pci latency=0
                resources: irq:18 memory:c0000000-cfffffff ioport:7000(size=256) 

When I open additional drivers and try to enable the driver it say:

Sorry, installation of this driver failed.
Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log

I need a help.

  • can you add the errors from /var/log/jockey.log ? – fossfreedom Dec 18 '11 at 17:23
  • Did you take a look at this question and this community documentation? – Nitin Venkatesh Dec 18 '11 at 17:29
  • @nitstorm : I've read that .the first step it says that i have to uninstall the driver but it fails saying :"sh: Can't open /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh". Any idea ? – user38397 Dec 20 '11 at 11:15
  • @fossfreedom : How do i do that ? – user38397 Dec 20 '11 at 11:35
  • gedit /var/log/jockey.log and copy and paste what you see (or the relevant parts) into an edit of your question. – fossfreedom Dec 20 '11 at 12:33

Could this be the blacklist bug? Ubuntu Oneiric has a bug, in that it does not properly blacklist the genric radeon driver, when you install the proprietary one.

Does the workaround described here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/827120 help you?
