I've installed ubuntu 10.10 on an asus k52JR, video card: ati radeon hd5470, not the best.

Here are a few screenshots


Gnome-desktop is working perfectly, 1080p movies work perfect, no lag

Output for fglrxinfo:

display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series
OpenGL version string: 4.0.10237 Compatibility Profile Context

I've installed the driver provided by jockey

Those are screenshots of the Unity desktop. Am I misreading your question?

Also, when you say "What to do with Ubuntu-netbook version," what do you mean? It's normal to have both desktops installed.

Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 uses Unity as a desktop interface. I want to use it, but it doesn't work.

Sorry, what to do with the ubuntu netbook to make it work right?

So just to clarify, the screenshots above aren't your screenshots then? = ) I'm not sure what they're supposed to be signifying - we already know what Unity looks like. = )

Are you saying that you can't log into Unity at all, or that it's not performing as well as Classic Gnome / Desktop Edition?

ok. again then.

I've installed 10.10 netbook edition. I want to use the netbook edition, but it doesn't work, check the screenshots. I am able to use only the desktop.

No, that's what 10.10 Netbook Edition (Unity) looks like now. It's similar to the old Netbook Remix functionally, but the look isn't as far afield from Gnome as Netbook Remix's was.
