    I'm having some problems with the proprietary ATI driver for Ubuntu.

    If I enable it, Compiz works a treat, however I cannot adjust brightness using fn f9/f10, anything that requires graphical processing (games, Blender, Flash full screen etc) either doesn't work at all or just flickers.

    If I disable it, Compiz doesn't work, but games and Blender will load.

    Anybody have any advice or anything I can do to try and sort this out?

    Hi there, i am having the same laptop. It seems that the closed Ati driver has compatibility issues that is why the problem. I suggest you to use the open driver for it.
