    Re: Weird Graphical Glitches on Ubuntu 13.1?

    Why not just install the driver in the repo?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates
    Code:
    sudo amdconfig --initial
    Reboot.

    Help with weird graphical glitches in Ubuntu 13.1 (cont.)

    So I created a thread a while back and it's officially dead now because I had a lot going on and wasn't able to check it for a while, but I did narrow down my problem. Link if interested

    I apparently need to install an fglrx driver (what?) for my graphics card.

    Read the other thread for more info but I'll give a quick summary here.

    The issue is pic related. That happens, windows disappear, the sidebar sometimes flash very quickly.

    Guy in other thread asked me what graphics card I used and I ran a command to find it:
    lspci | grep VGA
    00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Trinity [Radeon HD 7520G]
    He then answered:
    Install the proprietary driver. This guy seems to have same problem and get it fixed by installing fglrx
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2195012
    All of my what?


    Two questions now basically.

    Which driver do I install from the AMD website? I'm pretty sure about this one but I just want to be sure I'm downloading the right one.

    Also, this should be easy, how do I install from .tar.gz files? This is what one of the drivers I've downloaded comes in.

    Thanks in advance

    I think this fixed it. I'll give it an hour or two though.

    Thanks and sorry about creating another thread. Didn't see another page was added to the original thread

    Be back in an hour to close thread if all goes well
