    Radeon driver issue with 13.10

    Looked through lots of posts regarding radeon driver but haven't been able to get the driver to work correctly. I upgraded from 12.04 (using fglrx and working fine) to 12.10/13.04/13.10. Now using the open source radeon driver (fully removed fglrx). HD3000 (RS780). Connected to 1600x900 monitor.

    Login screen works fine (full resolution), but when I login the screen "shreds". tty works(f1 to f6). If I use recovery mode and resume it sets the resolution to 1024x768 and it logs in fine, but there are no higher monitor settings.

    When doing a series of upgrades like that, nearly anything can go wrong. You may end up being better off doing a clean install.

    But let's set that aside for a bit.

    Could you get a picture of the screen with a cell phone or something and post it? Please remember to use the "paper clip" button to use the attachment functionality.

    This universe is crazy. I'm going back to my own.

    Started to take pics and found it was only the ubuntu studio (XFCE) interface that had the issue. I was able to get the ubuntu default to work (after re-installing the desktop packages). Never got the xfce desktop to work so removed the xfce packages.
