  1. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Sorry to bump the thread, but no joy at all on this so far.

    Seems there are several similar bugs now:

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    I get the following error when trying to install the ati.com driver:


    Creating directory fglrx-install

    Appreciate the replies.

    Tried changing the "ati" reference to "radeon" and no luck unfortunately.

    Also changed the size of the virtual screen but again no luck.

    Think I might give the...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Thinking of giving the ATI drivers a go before I file a bug report - heard people saying this is a bad idea?

    I think I've run out of options really!
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    I went into the screen/graphics preferences and it was already set to AL1916w, but wasn't set to widescreen I don't think, so I checked that and changed the driver to "radeon".

    This gave the...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Do you think it would be worth posting a bug report if nobody else has any suggestions because I'm really stumped. Short of buying a new video card I'm not sure what else to try - but other people...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    I tried uninstalling xserver-xgl with:


    sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xgl

    and it said: "Package xserver-xgl is not installed, so not removed" - so it definately isn't there.

    I then...

    Hmm... I'm in vesa now and typed in compiz --replace and got the following:

    Yes have upgraded to 8.04 Hardy now. Followed the instructions above here are the outputs:

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Have managed to grab a copy of the Xorg.0.log for the ATI driver I think. I booted into the "ATI" driver, and can confirm that the system locks up (Caps lock does nothing) and the monitor either...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    I'm in ubuntu now with the vesa driver - that has always worked fine and to be honest if it was at 1440x900 resolution it wouldn't bother me, but it is stuck at 1280xsomething...

    The processor is...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Thanks for the reply - unfortunately when it gets to the login screen I cannot even select that since (if the cursor responds) if I click something it just doesn't respond, so I can't even log-in.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Well I've upgraded to 8.04 and it has hindered things rather than helped if anything...

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Actually forget that - cannot seem to get it to do anything when the monitor goes so will just upgrade and report back how I get on.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    I think I will more than likely try and upgrade it - hopefully that will do the trick. I will still post the information below just out of interest in case it helps anybody else.

    Output of lspci:...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot get open source ATI driver working ACER AL1916w & Radeon 9000. Ubuntu 7.10

    Also while I remember, would upgrading be a bad idea at the moment until I get this sorted as I have heard that the editing of the xorg file isn't possible/harder so I could end up not being able to...

    Hi All,
