View Full Version : [ubuntu] In need of super help

HELP!!! I' recently upgraded to jaunty. Been trying to get my graphics card to work, even for a few effects. I entered sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg and restarted. It loads fine, but then It won't quite bring up the desktop. It tries like 3 times before it stops with some half burned in image of the load screen. PLEASE HELP!!! I am using a live 8.10 disk now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I keep trying and it keeps failing. I've even tried to restart from there. There is no screen or mouse or anything to see if it even responds. Just blurred load page. I really don't want to have to reload 8.10 and do the upgrade to 9.04 again....

sounds like you keep loading the wrong informaion into xorg

go to recovery mode from Grub and choose XFIX

ATI, Nvidia or Intel?

I believe it is a ATI RADEON m6 or something, but I thought it was just an intel before. At this point as much as I would like to have any graphical effects, I just want it to start.

You're not trying to load it onto your:

"Old Dell c610. P3 And a half a gig a RAM."

are you!?!?!?!

Yeah. I had it working with 8.10. I even upgraded to 9.04. Was more than fine. But no......I had to try to get my graphic effects working and now they are messed up. What is the command to have ubuntu discover its own settings?

Your video card isn't supported by the proprietary driver anymore. Since you upgraded from intrepid, is it possible that you installed the proprietary driver in the past?
can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

It never did find any drivers. After I installed Jaunty I kept messing with it and inputted the command that is in the first thread of this post. Then I restarted and this...

I know there has to be a way to have it restore itself thru the grub recovery. xfix or whatever doesn't do anything.

Try removing compiz

sudo apt-get remove compiz
