    Smile Slow Flash videos with an ATI Radeon 9500 pro and Ubuntu Karmic 9.10

    Hello!
    I have a pc with an ATI Radeon 9500 pro and Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic. I have experienced very slow flash videos, very very slow loading of wine programs (the lightest utorrent, office 2003...) and changing gtk2.0 themes. I have found a solution browsing the internet and unfortunately I cannot give the author the right credits at this moment ( I hope to do it soon editing this post). this solution works like a charm for me:

    1)run a terminal and type:
    sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
    to shut down gnome.
    2) log in with your username and password
    3)sudo Xorg -configure
    to create xorg.conf.new in your home
    4)sudo gdm stop
    to restart gnome.
    5) sudo gedit xorg.conf.new
    6)add these lines in Section "Device":
    Option "AGPmode" "1"
    Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
    Option "AccelDFS" "true"
    Option "EnablePageFlip" "true"
    Option "EnableDepthMoves" "true"
    7)save as /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    8) repeat steps 1 and 4 to restart your gnome.

    Happy new year!
