I have just reformatted with fresh install after I followed an unofficial ATI wiki and completely trashed my previous install. Many threads and Ubuntu help just say to go to restricted drivers in sys/admn and select ATI. I have no restricted drivers listed in my menu. I have installed ATI binary driver and fglrx control and still have not made it anywhere. here is my xorg.conf:
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen"
InputDevice "Synaptics Touchpad"
This is my card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 [Mobility FireGL 9000] [1002:4c66] (rev 01)
I am going to rely on the official forums so that I don't trash my settings again. I hope there is help!
