    I just ran strings on - there's a list of text items that include the documented options such as VideoOverlay, but the list also includes things which aren't valid options.

      Where is this file located?

        alright.. I spent the last two evenings sifting through disassambler output from aticonfig, trying to figure out --pplib-cmd options. I didn't make much progress cause the stupid thing just wouldn't accept any commands, untill I came across the EnablePPLIB config option two hours ago! :P

        setting EnablePPLIB seems to mess up the aticonfig --lsp ouput.

        My assambler knowledge is limited so some things could be wrong and as ejs1920 said before, there maybe a reason this stuff is hidden... so don't complain if you melt your card or something..

        num == some number

        get version
        get clock
        get swcntl
        get pstate
        get pmapping AC
        get pmapping DC
        get pmapping DCLOW # DCLOW doesn't work here
        get psbatterylevel AC|DC|DCLOW
        get eventCount Thermal
        get eventCount VPURecovery
        get temperature num # doesn't work
        get FanInfo num # if I enter a number I get zero values back
        get FanSpeed num # doesn't work)
        get UserState 3d|2d
        get activity # doesn't work
        get ODParam # doesn't work
        get ODLevel num # probably requires number
        get ODDefaultLevel # doesn't work
        get fs PowerPlay
        get fs OverDrive
        get fs ReducedRefreshRate
        get fs ClockGating
        get fs ReducedColorDepth
        get fs OverDriveTest
        get fs PowerBudgetWaiver
        get fs PowerExpress

        set fs PowerPlay enabled|disabled
        same as get fs ...

        set pmapping AC|DC|DCLOW optimalBattery|highBattery|balanced|highPerformanc e|optimalPerformance
        set psbatterylevel AC|DC|DCLOW num (num == some number or two. doesn't work here)

        set FanSpeed num num # probably expects two numbers, doesn't work
        set UserState 2d|3d num num # doesn't work
        set ODLevel num,num,num # doesn't work

        notify psrc dc|ac|dclow
        notify batterylevel num
        notify suspend
        notify resume
        notify restState|forcedState|exclusiveMode begin|end
        notify DispConfigChange
        notify screenSaver|VPURecovery|Thermal|textMode|3dhigh|3d low|inactive|InitCompleted begin|end
        notify AppSafeTo|AppUnsafeTo AdapterSwitch|ModeSwitch
        notify AdapterDisableSafe

        reset fan num

        enum thermal num

        an example command line would be:
        aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get version"

        which returns:
        PPLIB version is 1.3 and is inactive!

        which might explain why most things don't work. my card is a radeon 9550, maybe that's another reason ..

          I tried both the options but I don't notice any improvements while using compiz (always slow scrolling) or while using other apps.
