Hi,
When I used the 7 version of Ubuntu on my Dell C600, I could easily display 1024X768. With the new 8.04, I can only get 800X600. I have an ATI rage mobility. What changed and how can I get it back.

Unfortunately I am a nOOb in this. I have not messed with UNIX-Linux in about 15 years but it is refreshing to see how far it has come.

I just installed Kubuntu and am trying to get the NEW ATI drivers to install. You can find them here.

http://linux.softpedia.com/progDownload/ATI-Radeon-Linux-Display-Drivers-Download-6719.html

Just go there and down load them. HAHA I can't get the package to execute. I have no clue. So I guess I am going to post a question.

Thanks,
I have seen that file before and have not had any luck opening or running it either.

Got it to run in the console with the command
sudo file-name :)
It ran fine and installed the screen driver, looks good.
LOL Unfortunately it also over-wrote my sound driver with the AMD sound driver. I have a Toshiba laptop with ATI, AMD chipset plus a RealTek chipset for WIFI, LAN and Sound. :confused: Now I am stuck trying to get the RealTek HD sound driver installed. This I have to build my self according to the instructions.
Ain't life grand!

No need for downloading drivers.
