Installation worked flawless for me on Ubuntu Gutsy. Whitelisted fglrx in /usr/bin/compiz on line 54 (someone asked how to do it previously).
Performance is not really good. Worse than the opensource ati driver (like kirý said). Did I miss enabling some options in xorg.conf?
arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!* Installing fglrx module
* ati tree 'lib' -> 'lib32' on system
install: cannot stat `/var/tmp/paludis/x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.42.3/work/arch/x86_64/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2': No such file or directory
install: cannot stat `/var/tmp/paludis/x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.42.3/work/arch/x86_64/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so': No such file or directory
* ati tree 'lib64' -> 'lib64' on system
install: cannot stat `common/etc/ati/fglrxprofiles.csv': No such file or directory
install: cannot stat `common/etc/ati/fglrxrc': No such file or directory
now no apps are starting because of the libgl.s0.1.2 not being there... how could i fix this?! if i cannot fix it i cannot use the driver...
for me the driver can be called 8.42.3 the baby is born... dead!!!!!!!!!
Try installing it manually via method 2 found here:Code:display: 0:0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technolgies Inc. OpenGL rendered string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 release
(uninstall all previous instances of fglrx first, but don't reboot till you finish the manual install)
What kills me is that compiz-fusion is running at a usable speed -- just completely graphically corrupted.
Oh yeah, and et:qw crashed the X server after about 20 seconds into the game.
Wish I was more impressed, but...
Any clue which options I should activate in my "Xorg.conf" config file in order to enable Compiz via AIGLX? When running
compiz.real --indirect-rendering --replace I'm getting a message telling me that the composite extension is not enabled on my system.
Also, when I installed it (on Gutsy), it seems the package did not create a necessary symbolic link (ie. in /usr/lib libGL.so.1 was not found, but libGL.so.1.2 was, so I created a symbolic pointing from libGL.so.1 to libGL.so.1.2 and it did the trick).
ok, thanks for the composite extension tip, i didn't read the post first.EDIT: If you have the Composite extension disabled in your xorg.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, make sure you re-enable it.
