View Full Version : [ubuntu] Radeon 6520g Troubles

December 24th, 2012, 12:44 AM
Hey all,

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 on a Gateway laptop with an AMD A6-3400m CPU and Radeon 6520g integrated graphics. Everything works brilliantly except for graphics.

When the closed source drivers are not installed, most things work fine (even alpha blending, shadows, etc) but are a bit slow with bits of noise and corruption showing up. After installing the drivers, the card is correctly identified and the corruption stops, but it all slows to a crawl with with window dragging visibly repainting.

What can I do to get around/fix this? I really need Linux since I do Rails development and constantly use the terminal. Being stuck with Windows is like having my hands tied.
