They I copied it into my root home folder /root.After that, I used commands below to install it: sudo su cd ~ apt-get install debhelper devscripts execstack dh-modaliases chmod +x ./ati-driver-installer-11-6-x86.x86_64.run And as a result, now if you want the optimum performance from your ATI/Nvidia GPU (which you should since Unity and other desktop heavily use the 3D acceleration of your GPU), Before you get started The first thing to check for when you consider using the fglrx driver is whether your AMD graphics card is supported. Download the driver found at the AMD website. http://tbapplication.com/ati-catalyst/ati-catalyst-drivers-ubuntu-11-04.html
See, how easy it is learning to use Linux, fast! :D. After it has finished building, install them with the command below, $ sudo dpkg -i *deb After the installation is over, execute the command below to detect the ATI card. $ Testing the driver To look for boot messages/errors, check dmesg | egrep 'drm|radeon'To see your OpenGL information, you can run the commands below. You may need to install the linux generic headers sudo apt-get install linux-headers-genericInstall the driver For 12.04: sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle or sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updatesFrom 14.04 forward, fglrx-amdcccle https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1770670
I just want to tell you how to install this thingy. Install the Full Proprietary Codecs Pack in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal! Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty: sh amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/trustyUbuntu 12.04 LTS Precise: sh amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/precise If it is required, a package manager window will open and install some dependencies and after So it seems to be some kind of incompatibility between desktop effects (maybe composite) and glxgears.

Note that the name of the .run file is for ILLUSTRATION only and you must be sure that you type the name of the actual file correctly). The Catalyst 11.4 Linux driver also has at least one fix for Wine. It also feels like everything becomes a bit laggy.
And yes the Compiz version that comes with the Unity desktop is not that stable actually and there could be more reasons for that. It can be fixed however...Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add the following line to Section"Module": load "dri" 7.1.

So this seems to be wholly unrelated to the graphics driver. Supported, but hardware is too old for Unity These cards will not run Ubuntu's Unity desktop with 3D acceleration. For instance, with the recent netbooks related AMD Fusion chip-sets where we have both a CPU and the GPU at the same "core" (same physical chip), if you haven't installed the Although Intel has a long range of their own GPUs which are also quite powerful but still when comparing with the ATI and Nvidia, they're slightly behind.

This means you can use simple devices like USB Sticks with your laptop, but power consuming devices like External hard disks which need more than 100mA current will not pass a http://tbapplication.com/ati-catalyst/ati-catalyst-driver-ubuntu-11-10.html As said, most wouldn't need it. In 11.04 I was hesitant to try the ATI driver because it did not work in 10.10, but after experiencing issues in 11.04 x64 with the Ubuntu ATI driver I decided This is also a bit of a "known issue" but luckily there's an Ubuntu Wiki page that explains everything.

Although I could just give you the commands but I highly recommend that you read the page. To check whether the fglrx driver is working, open a terminal and type: fglrxinfo If fglrx is installed and working well you should see an output similar to: fglrxinfo display: :0
AarioLogs Aario's blog about life and technology HomeAbout How to install ATI Catalyst Driver 11.6 on Ubuntu Linux 11.04 NattyNarwal Finally I installed ati catalyst 11.6 on my Ubuntu 11.04. This issue exists on all operating systems when "Chip-set" is not installed completely. All I did was to buy another ASUS laptop. http://tbapplication.com/ati-catalyst/ati-catalyst-driver-ubuntu-10-04.html For that use the below command.
I just decided to switch to an nvidia GT 430. Now I'm not going to do a lot of "explaining" because I feel like I'd easily make some of you guys confused.. Note: Remember to uninstall the AMD proprietary fglrx graphics if it is already installed and reboot your system. To install the created .deb files, type: sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb Note: In case any of the packages are broken, open Synaptic Package Manager and go to Edit -> Fix Broken
Unfortunately this not is the case with ATI and Nvidia drivers since they refuse to give information regarding the GPU structure, etc which is an essential if you want to embed Save a backup copy of xorg.conf in case this doesn't work.

To do that skip the step "2" and enter the below commands instead (and might want to use that step "3" command too).
So I finally decided to try the latest driver from the ATI site, to see if the mem leak was fixed. but i can't help much here... thank you very much.
