    ATI 9000/9100 driver problem with envy

    I have Hardy installed on my laptop and everything's fine except for the graphics card, which I can't get to work after about a week now.

    I'm a complete noob with Linux so I've tried using envyng, it appears to have installed (I get the message "installation complete" once it has run) but I still cannot enable desktop fx after it has rebooted.

    Now I'm not fussed about desktop fx but I would like my graphics card to be installed properly. It doesn't appear at all on the 'proprietary drivers menu'.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    ATI Card before the 9500 series are not supported by the legacy ATI Restricted Driver. You will have to use the open source ATI/Radeon driver already available in X.
