    There's no such thing as a Radeon "3D accelerator". There ARE the restricted Linux drivers from AMD which do provide some 3D acceleration -- but you should see them listed in Additional Drivers.

    We first need to find out what version of Ubuntu you are running, and then, the make and model of your Radeon card. For the latter, open up a terminal, enter "lspci" (without the quotes) and look for the line containing "VGA" -- and post that back here. It could be that your Radeon card is too old for current accelerated drivers.
    Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
