I have a fresh install of 12.04 (64 bit) on an ASUS M2A-VM motherboard (Integrated ATI Radeon X1250-based graphics) going into my LG 52" plasma TV via DVI/HDMI.
I was getting choppy video with the default install, so I did a "sudo apt-get install fglrx" and a reboot. The playback is no longer choppy (good!) but now there's a new problem. When I start a video (in this case an AVI of Star Trek: The Next Generation) the visuals are speeded up while the audio remains normal. The visuals eventually sync up to the audio over a few minutes.
So I should just open up Catalyst and do some tinkering there right? Well, when I click on the Catalyst icon I get this:
Of course, I try command lineing "aticonfig" where I'm told "aticonfig: No supported adapters detected". But I clearly remember installing fglrx just a few minutes ago!There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linyx edition. It could be caused by the following.
No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly.
Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your AMD hardware, or configure using aticonfig.
In the mean time I've minimized the movie player application. Why don't I full screen it again and see where we are? Well, now the video is speeded up for two seconds and then it halts and then speeds up again. I leave it run for about five minutes but it never syncs up to the audio again.
This is all very strange, since I definately installed fglrx and after I did the behavior of the movie playback definately changed. So I double check. I open up the Additional Drivers application and am told that "No propriety drivers are in use on this system."
What in the world is going on here, and how can I fix my video playback?
