Re: Ati mobility radeon X600 Driver?
Oh my gosh! This almost my EXACT situation! I was trying to play COGS. When I launch the game, I see a screen for a split second and then...nothing. No errors. Just nothing. I figured the drivers weren't correct (same as OP!). Then started a very frustrating search for how to get the proper drivers installed. I learned some interesting things along the way, but they're also very confusing to me. I'm new to UBUNTU, but not to computers, so I feel I'm pretty good at following directions/instructions. I have come across a whole mess of instructions for how to install these drivers, but NOTHING works. It seems that things are installing okay, but they're never actually used. When I follow the instructions for removing the drivers, I can see all kinds of things being taken out. The system tells me helpful things like, "Hey..we're gonna remove all this stuff. 55megs of space will be reclaimed. Do you wanna do this? When I hit the "y" key it proceeds to blow away lots of stuff so I know it worked a little.
Some weird stuff: I don't appear to have this XORG.CONFIG thingy. I see a log file for it, but no XORG.CONFIG. Not sure what that means, really. When I installed 12.04 I told the installation to go ahead and grab anything it needed from the Internet as it was installing. I can see an AMD driver in the Additional Drivers from Dash. It was activated, so I deactivated it thinking it was interfering with the better drivers. Apparently that's not the case. Graphics worked better with that running, though. I guess I'll just turn it back on and forget about x600 drivers? There were no additional posts after Jahid65 mentioned that the x600 drivers were dropped, so is that really true? Am I screwed? I'd just like to use this card. This was a beefy laptop in it's day (HP Pavilian zd8000). I'd love to make it work properly.
Thanks in advance. Hopefully someone'll have good news for me.
I think you're jealous of my house, AND my large oven....and so you advise me to rebuild it.
