I am a newbie at ubuntu, so please excuse me for obvious/retarded mistakes.
This is my original problem:
Along with countless problem-windows popping up now and then.Not software rendered: no
Unity 3D supported: no
So far I've installed Ati binary driver as described in this page, but that only messed things up worse with all the window decoration suddenly not working with compiz.
I was guided to this thread from another thread I started and thought I found the solution in a new driver for my card.
However the installer won't let me install:
The install-log dosen't exist in the given path during the installation-process and afterwards the entire folder disappears. Nor does a search for the logfile render any hits, hence I do not know what "required tools" I should be downloading?One or more tools required for installation cannot be found on the system.
Install the required tools before installing the fglrx driver. Optionally, run the installer with --force option to install without the tools.
Forcing install will disable AMD hardware acceleration and may make your system unstable. Not recommended.
See /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log for more details.
I looked up force-installing and tried the advise offered but they both resulted in previous result(above error-message). Is it even advisable to force-install and if so how do I do it seeing that the "chmod a+x *.run" and "sudo ./*.run" commands aren't doing it?
Any other ideas what I should do to get my graphic card in sync with Ubuntu?
