Amd watermark

Revision as of 19:01, 3 November 2012 by (talk) (removed redundancy, fixed the code. guys leave version because you need to get it from ONE file, not every. And also, no stdout to file because it will contain the "signature=" part.)

This page is intended for people that are using ATI Proprietary Drivers (fglrx) and there's a watermark in the bottom right corner of the screen. The annoying watermark is result of an missing signature key in /etc/ati/signature. It should be installed by default, but by some strange reason, sometimes it isn't. You have to add the signature key by hand, grabbing it from the ati install script. Type in some terminal window:

grep -a signature= amd-driver-installer-<version>.run

It will output the signature key. As root, echo that code, without the "signature=" part to /etc/ati/signature, or just copy it with your favourite text editor.

Restart X, and it should remove that watermark.

If you are trying the beta driver, then you should take the signature from the latest stable release file.
