Re: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS VS ATI mobility Radeon X700
If you're using System Info and it's telling you "unknown" -- that is a known bug with System Info.
You can find out what video chipset that Ubuntu is seeing by running the command "lspci" (without the quotes) and looking for the line containing "VGA". It will probably say something like: RV410 Radeon X700.
If you're seeing a desktop, then the Radeon drivers are already installed -- and there's nothing more you can do as AMD dropped restricted driver support for this video chip years ago.
Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
