    TI Radeon HD 3650 support

    My monitor supports 1680x1050 resolution, and I have an ATI Radeon HD 3650 card with 512MB RAM. I downloaded the ATI driver, and tried to double click on it (it has a .run extension), but nothing happens. I am a Windows user, just installed UBUNTU. What do I do to get this driver installed, and should I expect any issues with support for the ATI 3650?

    try opening a terminal and typing chmod +x *name of file* and press enter. then use ./*name of file* to run it. remember to include the extension.

    It's telling me I need to be logged in as a super-user to run it.

    Then just add sudo before the command.
    sudo allows you to run programs as super-user/root, but be careful when using it.

    Usually when you download a file, the default location will be the desktop. However when you log into a terminal, by default you will be in the user home directory. So try these commands once you open a terminal - first change the directory:

    Code:
    cd Desktop
    Change the permission of the file to make it executable as stated earlier:

    Code:
    sudo chmod +x <<name of downloaded file>>
    Then run it:

    Code:
    sudo sh ./<<name of downloaded file>>
    Hope this helps!
