    The backclear patch still seams to be required for fluent desktop effects...

    If you are laptop user like me, the still prevalent lack of (well working) powersaving features of the OS drivers reminds you every day of fglrx...

    I got a laptop, just not one with an overkill of a GPU, because you know, I want a portable laptop that's not a mobile furnace.
    Anyway, the driver does not work with KDE4 desktop effects; guess they never fixed the issue. Enabeling the effects causes a black screen (system remains responsive though, so you can still exit to a console just fine). I expect the issues with Compiz are there too. Driver also has the "new" 2D accel. method, though it's still very buggy and slow in this driver revision to be of any practical use. If you still want to try it out, as root:

    Code:
    aticonfig --set-pcs-str=DDX,Direct2DAccel,TRUE
    ... and restart X. To revert to old method:
    Code:
    aticonfig --del-pcs-key=DDX,Direct2DAccel
    At least packaging for Karmic works now.

    Did you really expect a WORKING driver?
