Angry ATI video card installation in Ubuntu distro...

I'm using a Asus A9550 GE graphic card and I just keep trying everything I could expect to do to change the drivers itself but it doesn't work at all. And because I'm a bit too newbie in the whole configuration center of this distro and how using the basics commands, it's getting me fuck!!

Thanks in advance and keep me inform!

Hi there

A little more detail would help and what command you are using and maybe the X version you have and what dos your /var/log/Xorg.0.log look like.

In my case i am running Debian 4.0, version 7 of the x server and I use dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, to configure my display.

try using man Xorg it might help you
