View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ati radeon x300 no Opengl,effects...

March 3rd, 2010, 10:59 PM
Hi there, I have an ati radeon x300 (RV370). It is supposed to be compatible with 3d effects through the open source driver, but composition doesnt work neither in gnome (compiz) or kde (kwin). Starcraft doesnt work either. Everything used to work with my previous card: Nvidia 3700GT (I think) and had to replace it because it wasn't working properly. I already uninstalled all the nvidia-related software. I never installed the propietary ati driver, since it's not compatible with my card.

Anyone knows what's happening?

With the open ati driver, what is the output of:


What are some of the errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Thx for the speed answer :P

I changed to a nvidia video card and installed the latest drivers. However, Im curious about the ati error... I may install the ati card on monday and try again. I will tell you then. Thx a lot

That is one way to solve an ATI graphics driver problem--install nVidia.
