I'm setting up Hardy on a computer for a friend who has been wanting Ubuntu for a while, and no matter what I do, I can't get the restricted manager to load up. I've enabled ubuntu restricted in add/remove, I've tried Envy, I've tried everything (in the middle of this: http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu..._Manual_Method right now, building the deb part).
This is really frustrating. I knew better than to use an ati card in her computer, but it's the only thing I had around, and she doesn't want to put a lot of money into this machine. It's a radeon 9200se with a dvi output for an lcd flat panel, which is what she wanted to have.
This is really frustrating because I keep telling her how cool ubuntu is. And I though ati was doing all kinds of stuff to make their drivers work well in linux?
The only drivers that work are the basic fglrx ones, and yeah I get 1400 fps in glxgears-is-not-a-benchmark, but still, I want better drivers running, and yes, I've tried the envy drivers shown in synaptic.
So why is there no restricted driver manager? I've seen this problem avoided in many posts here so far. I had no idea this was such a problem.
... okay, my stand by nvidia fx5200 pci card is sitting over there, but I really don't want to part with AN NVIDIA card when I can finally get this wretched ati product off of my property, know what I mean?
I'm stuck at this
point for a while in the terminal. Seems like it's taking way too long.
