Need help with ATI graphics / blank screen
I installed 8.04 on Sunday and when I rebooted I loaded up to a blank screen and my monitor acted like it was disconnected from my CPU. I have determined that the drivers for my ATI graphics card are missing and have been replaced by a generic driver that is not allowing it run. I can not get into Ubuntu at all but I am able to activate the Terminal by using CTRL+ALT+F1 at the blank screen.
I have tried to manually install the drivers but have had no luck. I have also tried to install Envy by using the code:
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install envyng-gtk
but it can't find the package.
I have also tried to uninstall xserver and fix it but all to no avail. I have also tried to reboot in recovery mode but I can't get in still.
If somebody has discovered how to fix this issue, I'd be most happy to know how.
Thanks in advance.
Re: Need help with ATI graphics / blank screen
Okay. I may have found the way to install Envy but I have to get into "/etc/apt/sources.list" so that I can add the universe repository.
When I type "/etc/apt/sources.list" into terminal, it says that my permission is denied and I don't have access to gedit or nano. Anybody know why?
