If you require help with installing the AMD fglrx driver, please consider a web forum or mailing list.

After installing Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop I noticed that some images, textareas and textures were displayed in a stripery way. And always ther were a few bleu dots around my mousepointer.

Installing the newest fgrlx ATI drive was not an option because after the install X-org hangs.

My hardware:

HP Compaq nw8240 Ati Mobility Radeon X700 1900 x 1200

Ubuntu 9.04

After a long search I found the folowing solution:

Just change the mentioned sections in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf to the folowing:

  1. start xorg.conf

Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection

Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Virtual 1920 1200 EndSubSection EndSection

Section "Module" Load "dri" Load "GLcore" Load "glx" EndSection

Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Option "EnablePageFlip" "1" Option "ColorTiling" "1" Option "AccelMethod" "XAA" Option "DynamicClocks" "true" Driver "radeon" EndSection

  1. end xorg.conf

After this change finaly my Ubuntu 9.04 performed as wished including compiz and apps like google earth
