    Exclamation Flickering graphics with ATI in Ubuntu 8.04

    Hi, I had installed the new Ubuntu 8.04 from scratch, then i installed the proprietary ATI drivers. After that, i enabled the desktop effects, everything works great until i run a program that uses OpenGL. For example, when i run Google Earth the graphics starts to flicker or even when i choose a screen saver. In Ubuntu 7.10 with proprietary ATI Drivers + XGL everything worked great, but now i have this problem. Can someone help me, please ?

    Thanks from Portugal

    I'm having the same problem. Compiz works fine, I can run 3D applications like Urban Terror with no slowdown but about every second or so, it flickers. Without compiz in gutsy it worked fine. Card is ATI Radeon Xpress 200M on the 64-bit desktop edition of 8.04.

    I forgot to say, my card is an ATI Mobility Radeon X700!! Can someone help in this issue...
    By the way i have another question... if we install the proprietary ATI Driver from Ubuntu repositories, thus they automatically update to a new release or we have to allways re-install the drivers?

    Thanks

    Re: Flickering graphics with ATI in Ubuntu 8.04

    I have exactly the same issue radeon x1400 mobility anything that uses open gl screensaver, google earth, tuxracer etc...

    The screen flickers really bad, and black lines come across it.

    cambo@cambo:~$ fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.7415 Release

    I dont have compiz enabled.

    This previously worked perfect in 7.1

    Cheers

    Google Earth flickers, screen savers flickers too, games like Urban Terror are impossible to play, videos in full screen are difficult to watch... can someone post here a solution if possible ?!

    Thanks in advance

    Re: Flickering graphics with ATI in Ubuntu 8.04

    It's not a bug of the driver, but a limitation of DRI and the current X. DRI2 will address this issue, whenever it comes out.
