Hi everyone,

Can someone let me know what I'm doing wrong. I've installed the fglrx ati drivers in the repos using the restricted drivers manager. Yet when I type "fglrxinfo" it says I'm still using the mesa drivers.

How can I fix that? On an aside I've actually installed (or tried to install) the ati drivers from ati.com and I'm having the same problem in addition to the fact that while I had the repo drivers installed the compiz decorations were only a little laggy, with the ati.com drivers installed the decorations are absolutely horrendous.

Thanks in advance

Never mind. Reinstalled and I think the problem is I installed xserver-xgl. I guess that's not needed to run compiz anymore.
