    Exclamation ATI Radeon 6890 troubles

    Hello everyone,

    I have been using Ubuntu actively on my laptop for the past few years. Suddenly decided to migrate my whole system on Ubuntu. Ever since, I am lagging horribly in games, and having problems with everything that is video related. I have tried 3 Linux distribution, see if the problem would be fixed, and nothing! What am I missing there?

    Issues are, games have many relics, videos are slow, windows dosent wiggle correctly, and when I go into system details, my video driver is unknown, I have tried

    I get something like, fglrx tool missing, went on ubuntu software, and installed fglrx updates, still nothing!!

    Anyone can help me?

    hehe if you hadn't bumped this, i wouldn't have seen it

    The drivers you linked are old.

    Here are the latest drivers and best wiki for installing it:

    If u want it on a different release they are all here:

    The best people to ask are the linux amd community(maintainers of the wiki), since they are experts in this subject, many years ago i had a lot of problems installing my new(now old) ati hd 4850, then they came along and helped me.
