View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.10 Breaks ATI X-1950 Pro

January 31st, 2010, 09:21 PM
I just upgraded to the new 9.10. In 8.04 when I went into "Restricted Drivers" it showed something for my video card. Now there is nothing.

I'm trying to play a game (Counter-Strike) and it's just too laggy, probably because I don't have any drivers installed for the video card.

It's an ATI Radeon X-1950 Pro. What can I do?

There is nothing shown because, basically, there is nothing to install anymore. ATI dropped support for your card back in May of 2009. There are no ATI drivers that work with your card and Ubuntu 9.10.

You will need to install the open source drivers instead. Instructions are in the link below:
