ATI drivers installed but cant use visual effects
So I finally got my ATI drivers installed on gutsy but when i go into visual effects not only is there no custom option...but i cant even select normal... it says "Desktop effects could not be enabled"...why is this?
Also i have been trying to download envyNG for hours using
sudo aptitude install envyng-gtk
but it never installs anything.
Also people have told me that gutsy comes with compiz...but I dont seem to have it at all (otherwise i would have
the custom option in visual effects)
Whats the cause of all this ;(
edit: also, if i need to get compiz, how do i go about doing it?
Check the driver manager to see if the ati driver is being used.
But we need to know how you installed the drivers, which ones, and which card you have.
Gutsy does come with compiz-fusion. It is disabled if the detected driver does not support 3D acceleration.
AFAIK: envy is a tool to elp install and configure nvidia drivers.
i have been using these sites as a tutorial on installing my ATI drivers
I used the newest drivers ati-driver-installer-8-9-x86.x86_64.run
with an ATI radeon mobilty x600 card.
I didn't have compiz-fuzion installed oddly enough, but I finally installed it an now see "custom" in my visual effects screen. But now io cant open AT Catalyst Control Center because it says there was a problem initializing it saying "No ATI graphics driver installed or the ATI driver is not functioning properly"
Before I had compiz installed, this was working just fine... siiggh
add this to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
