    You are correct, the fglrx will not work. If you have installed lucid and its working, it has probably already set up the correct driver for you.

    i have installed lucid and it is working but i am unable to select extra under visual effects anymore. it says that my hardware does not support. I was able to select extra in karmic version of ubuntu.

    it does not stays at normal effects. It revert backs to none. I also tried installing xserver-xorg-video-ati_6.13.0-1_i386 then it says that i have newer driver installed.

    I also installed compiz that is also not working.


    It was working fine in karmic version. Dont understand what is going wrong. Any help?

    I have a problem with the same card where when the comp wakes from sleep the screen is unreadable. I have to re-start to be able to use the computer.
    what is the better driver for the X300?
