View Full Version : [ubuntu] ati driver
July 4th, 2008, 05:50 PM
i installed the ati driver suggested by my ubuntu system and the graphics got worse.
when i restarted after the install a window popped up before the system had fully loaded that said no driver was detected and directed me to reconfigure the system. i tried both doing and indicating the model of graphics accelerator, etc and reinstalling the whole os. neither worked
i tried uninstalling the driver to no avail

Try the drivers available on the ATI official website.

OK, I pretty much have the same problem:
I downloaded the appropriate drivers for my ATI 9600 All-In-Wonder card, but Ubuntu 8.04 won't let me install it !
Instead, it begins to initiate the install, then STOPS saying that I'm not a "Super User".
I attempt to go into the Konsole and type in
and it still refuses to install it, again, claiming I'm not a Super User.
Now what ?

I had this issue with some installer. I had to mark it as executable first
chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8-6-x86.x86_64.run
then run it from GUI by clicking on it.
Else you can try entering su mode by doing:
this will open a ROOT terminal now run
to leave root mode once done

Hey thanks.... that did the trick ! (sort of...)
The "ATI Drivers" now work, but not the TV tuner portion of the card ? (Unless I need to some how initiate that portion of the hardware ??
