Graphics card: ATI 5770 1GB
Number of displays: 1
Distribution (name, version, architecture): Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit, Ubuntu 11.04 64bit
Desktop environment: Gnome 2.x, Unity
fglrx version(s) I've used on that distribution, with that bug: 11.5 - 11.6
fglrx version(s) I've used on that distribution, without that bug: 11.4
ATI Catalyst Control Center settings: Default
I did not install the drivers outside of X. I downloaded the ATI drivers and then followed these steps in Ubuntu:
1. Open terminal
2. sudo bash (enter password)
3. cd /home/(my account)/Downloads
4. chmod 744 ati-driver-installer-11-6-x86.x86_64.run
Follow prompts, restart.
If anyone can seriously suggest that installing the new driver outside of X is better, I'll give it a go. I'm not sure how to shut down X in Ubuntu. In Debian I go to a tty and do "init 3". Anyone know the Ubuntu equivalent off hand?
I didn't try 11.7 because I see no reason to do it when other people are still reporting the bug.
