When I went to install the restricted driver for my graphics card, Hardy told me that I have an ATI fire GL card. I do NOT have an ATI fire GL card, I have a radeon mobility x700 that was detected fine in gutsy. The box is checked, but says that the driver is not in use. What is going on here? I need my video driver!Should I try to reinstall?


*EDIT* Solved by reinstalling Hardy

Looks like we're in the same boat. My ATI Radeon Mobility x300 was detected as an ATI Fire GL, as well.

I understand the Fire GL to be a workstation video driver, but how the confusion is happening is far beyond my scope, not to mention how to fix the problem.

Could somebody please help us out?

EDIT:

Mine just worked itself out. Not sure how. Bizarre.

I had this problem too. I'm pretty sure I know how it fixed itself.
When I first installed I tried to go into add/remove programs and it failed to get the latest lists.(serevers are probably getting hammered) Anyway I tried refressing in synaptic untill it worked and once the latest lists were downloaded I went into restricted drivers and it was now unchecked and let me download the latest version. Once I rebooted I was greeted with pretty effects. :P

(Oh, I have a radeon 200m card)
