  1. [all variants] Re: Creative Recon3D + Sound Blaster Z (CA0132) Support

    I'm having the same problems with this card. I've tried 3.10rc3, but still no joy. Card works fine in Windows. No way I'm swapping which sound card my speakers are plugged into each time I switch...

    [ubuntu] Re: overclocking

    It's normal for your CPU to vary its clock speed according to load. This keeps the temperature down, saves energy and reduces fan noise. 3401 MHz is not overclocked. I wouldn't recommend...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: ATI AIW 7500 VE + Soundblaster ZxR

    I've got a soundblaster Zx and at the present I can't get sound in either Kubuntu 12.10 or 13.04. Other users are reporting the same problem in Ubuntu (eg...
  4. Re: Left 4 Dead 2 to hit Linux next week!

    To get the most of multiplayer you need to acquire online friends that you can play with regularly and the Steam friend system is very good for this and even allows you to set-up private chat rooms...
  5. Re: Left 4 Dead 2 to hit Linux next week!

    If you read the terms and conditions you don't own any game, CD or film that you buy, you are licensing it from the copyright owner. This has become much more apparent to end-users in the age of...
  6. Re: Left 4 Dead 2 to hit Linux next week!

    I'd be interested to know why you don't like Steam? I used to sceptical about them when I was forced onto it in order to play the first Left 4 Dead, but I've really grown to like Steam and Valve....

    Re: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lGL

    It seems to work now that I have an Nvidia card (just upgraded from AMD card) with the proprietary drivers installed.
  8. Re: scrambled loading screen after switching from AMD to Nvidia

    Playing with the settings made no difference. In the end I did a clean install and now my display is working correctly with the Nvidia drivers.
  9. Re: scrambled loading screen after switching from AMD to Nvidia

    Thanks, I'll give that a try.
  10. Re: scrambled loading screen after switching from AMD to Nvidia

    Hi. Yes I removed the AMD drivers the day before the card arrived! I also tried deleting the xorg.conf and generating a new one for the Nvidia card, but it didn't make any difference.

    But I might...
  11. scrambled loading screen after switching from AMD to Nvidia

    Hi. I've just treated myself to a GTX 660 ti (and very nice it is).

    I'm running Kubuntu 12.10 AMD64. My previous card was an AMD/ATI HD5850 for which I was using the catalyst 13.1 drivers and...

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Video Drivers aren't working (ATI 4250)

    Sorry, wish I could be more help. It sounds like you'll need to revert back to the default/open-source drivers. AMD driver support is pretty poor in linux, to be honest. Although the arrival of Steam...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Video Drivers aren't working (ATI 4250)

    Well it sounds like you've done everything correctly, so I'm unable to offer any further advice as to what could be the cause of your problem. Though I must admit that I have the mobility version of...

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Video Drivers aren't working (ATI 4250)

    I actually haven't tried HD video playback on the new drivers (will try over the weekend) as I've only just installed them, but I had no problems with 12.6. My laptop is plugged into my HDTV and...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Video Drivers aren't working (ATI 4250)

    These are the exact steps I took to successfully install the Catalyst 13.1 legacy drivers on my laptop which uses an ATI mobility radeon 4250. This was done in Kubuntu 12.04 AMD64, but it should work...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Video Drivers aren't working (ATI 4250)

    AMD have now released 13.1 legacy drivers (http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/legacy/Pages/legacy-radeon_linux.aspx). If you're feeling masochistic you could try these.

    But to be honest,...

    Turns out I hadn't installed the driver correctly. Reinstalled last night and all the KDE desktop effects are now working as expected. Still no noticeable difference in gaming performance (same frame...

    Re: AMD Catalyst 13.1 Driver

    But does that translate into reality? I installed the 13.1 drivers and ran Killing Floor through the Linux Steam beta client and was getting the same fps (25-40fps) as with 12.11 beta and 12.9, and...

    It works on my system (HD 5850) but some desktop effects don't appear to be working in KDE (Kubuntu 12.10 amd64, KDE 4.9.5), eg transluceny effects.

    It mentions in the release notes "performance...

  25. Re: The state of 64 bit AMD Catalyst drivers and WINE

    From what I've read and from my own experience, the problem is down to poor driver support from AMD. This is my set-up:

    AMD Catalyst 12.11 beta...
