View Full Version : [ubuntu] AMD HD 5450 Graphics in 12.10: No 3D Support with Radeon driver

November 30th, 2012, 06:27 PM
I am trying to install an XFX Radeon HD 5450 graphics card in my Ubuntu 12.10 desktop. I was disappointed that Xorg's radeon driver does not support Unity 3D for this card.

Is that really the case? Using this same driver Unity 3D works fine with the motherboard built-in graphics a (radeon X1200).

This is the output for /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
