    Ati drivers on Ubuntu 12.10

    This is the computer where i tried to install Ubuntu 12.10:


    • CPU_AMD Athlon XP 2000+
    • Memory_2GB Ram
    • Video_Ati Radeon 9600 PRO Series 256MB
    • SO_Ubuntu 12.10

    The installation went ok, but at first boot, screen resolution was very low and i wasn't able to change it. I don't have 3D Acceleration and i can't install ATI drivers. Fresh install or not, i have the same problem with another computer with a different ati card.

    I did many research, but i found nothing that could solve my problem, except for http://askubuntu.com/questions/13487...deo-card-12-04. I made a fresh install, not an upgrade, so i can't recover my old xorg.conf file or change it, like the link says; plus, there is no xorg.conf file. Even if i create it, there's nothing that works.

    I know this thing http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...yproducts.aspx about cards no longer supported; mine isn't there. I also tried http://ubuntuxtreme.com/howto/how-to...-ubuntu-12-10/ (on a second fresh install) and at reboot desktop didn't show up. That's the result whenever i try to install ati drivers (or any other video drivers) this way or another (from software center, repositories, ppas...). I don't know how to change resolution and how to install working drivers.

    I hope so. I have the same problem with a PackardBell Notebook with a more recent chip, the Radeon Xpress 200m with an intel cpu. Luckly the resolution is right, but ther's no 3d acceleration (can't watch youtube videos, games, graphic...)

    You are already using the only driver available for your graphics card in Ubuntu 12.10.

    ATI dropped Linux support for the 9600 series over 3 years ago.

    No.

    Please start a separate thread for your issues. Your problems have nothing to do with the problem that the OP has with his 9600.
