    I have the problem randomly with catalyst 14.9, ubuntu 14.10 and apu a8 5600k, with free drivers this doesn't happen.

    Can some fellow Ubuntu users here do a quick test for me? I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 with Catalyst, and as I mentioned in an earlier post, when I do a print-screen the white flash animation slows down to around 1fps and takes a long time to complete. When I booted into the 14.10 live image (which loads the open-source driver of course) to test, I didn't have that issue.

    I'd be interested to know if anybody else experiences the same thing...

    I use latets stable driver 14.9 from AMD site and use Linux Mageia 4 with KDE 4.12 and this issue is not persist on me on any browser (chrome, chromium, maxthon, opera). I tested also on Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 with latest amd-drivers from canonical repo and still not have this issue.

    What Radeon Troubles ?

    I don't get you people.

    I sold my Radeon R9 280 (Gigabyte) and, yesterday, I bought a R9 290 (Asus), popped it in, booted without X, re-installed catalyst (latest beta), rebooted and everything works 100%. Video (VLC, Youtube etc) , TF2, DOTA2, Civ5, XCOM, Witcher 2 (well, that has problems on nvidia too) etc ...

    Also, the A10-6800K APU works OK-ish, there are a few problems with The Withcer 2 and Planetary Annihilation, but I had problems with these games on an Geforce 755M
    ...

    All this on a 'hand-made' Debian 7 3.2 x64 ... not even an 'idiot-proof' distro like Ubuntu.

    I got the R9 290 on a black friday deal, ~260E including 3 games plus the new Civ:BE. Civ:BE and Alien:Isolation alone are worth ~50E.

    Really, you can't get better than this. The GPU is cheap for the money, runs smooth in an miniITX box, runs all 'high-end' games in my Linux Steam catalog ...

    Yes, true since my wife had the same problem with Ubuntu on her computer before she also switched to KDE and she has a laptop with Nvidia card...

    <img snip>

    (notice how the left side has part of the scroll bar, and notice the right side getting cut-off, and the entire browser being shifted over)

    Has happened with every driver since 14.1 or 14.4 (I'm currently on 14.9 on Trusty). This also happens with the fglrx package (14.8?) on Utopic.
