    After I installed this driver, Ubuntu 12.04 Unity switched to 2D mode, but i can't figure out why:
    1. Xorg.0.log - no errors.
    2. OpenGL works OK (tested with glxgears).
    3. "unity_support_test -p" says all is ok.
    also check if the output of "glxinfo" shows direct rendering as yes

      its because you're using AMD graphics drivers.

        Ubuntu 12.04, 7950

        Doesn't work at all for me. In the similar way as 13.8 betas. Random corruption when X first launches, hangs and crushes. Session loading fails after login. Drivers up to 13.6 at least support 2d.

        I'm tired of AMD.

            It's different shit every time, and if you want a more specific answer than that, you'll probably find yourself in a debate about stable API's, burden of maintenance, etc. http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Docum...i_nonsense.txt

            The AMD devs are so busy producing high-quality changelogs and intuitive driver version schemes that they don't have time to patch for the latest kernel.

                I hope they have solved a weird problem with one of the tessellation shaders used by the engine Im using. It works under Catalyst 13.4, but doesnt for 13.6 and 13.8 beta.

                  you should report those issues on somewhere? Reporting memory leaks on valve git would be a start.

                    Just installed on ubuntu 13.04 and it worked without incident. quite boring. the silly messages in dmesg are gone which is nice.

                    some flickering in chrome is gone and its working well gpu acceleration - havenít bothered with firefox opengl accel as its complete pants. vlc playback is perfect.

                      Yeah, sure, and they will pay attention to your report if you are Valve or Epic. If you are some unknown open source engine your issue will collect digital dust until somebody fixes it by mistake.
