View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I get the driver to install?

July 23rd, 2011, 10:16 PM
I just downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 as the primary OS for my Dell Precision 530. It currently has a ATI Radeon X800 256MB card in it. How do I get this driver to install properly, because when I try to install all it does is give me an error. I also have two monitors hooked up to my system, making one of them useless unless I get a fix. Someone please help! (And just in case, its 32 bit)

If you are referring to the proprietary driver, which seems to me, it doesn't support your video card anymore since quite a while:

So, you have to bet on another way to solve your issue. Explaining your actual issue here might help, though I'm not sure if I can contribute that much to that, since I have no personal experience with multiple monitors in Natty 11.04.
