I have recently upgraded to 16.04 (from 14.04). Since then, the system is running on low graphics (800x600, built in display). I assume the best advise to be reinstalling Ubuntu 16. But the question is, as I see the graphical problems now, does 16.04 LTS even support my Radeon graphic cards (hybrid or one) properly? Or should I reinstall Ubuntu 14 and going back to fglrx-driver (btw, even there only one graphic card worked properly)? Is there another solution?

    I'm sorry for interrupting you. Just because you said there could be something left from fglrx I naively ran the "purge fglrx - command". It seems, that there were something left and now I have high resoluton. I thaught the upgrade would deinstall fglrx automatically? - Anyway, I appreciate your advice, thanks a lot. – T.

  • Yeah, I thought the same, because 16.04 doesn't have this package. Well, seems we were wrong. I think you can now answer you own question :) Congratulations! – Hi-Angel Aug 29 '17 at 21:12
