so i just upgraded from 12.04- and I seem to be having issues with my ATI HD 4870 card. After googling for the solution- seems like this is a pretty wide spread problem.
My main issue is if I install the proprietary drivers and reboot- my system craps out. The resolution is low and unity is gone.
So to be honest, I don't know much about this. I have looked through the fourms and I have tried what other ubuntu users have suggested... I have tried to manually install fglrx, fglrx-updates, tried to install old drivers, and the version from the AMD website....nothing seems to be working.
I know very little about this- but I have read that this might be a problem with Xserver. "Some say that the new Xserver version is not supported by ATI".
What does this mean for an average user like me? I really cannot afford a new graphics card right now, should I just go back to using 12.04?
Is it likely that this problem will be fixed in the near future?
Has anybody found a workaround to this issue?
