I think you may be disappointed lol
The only graphics drivers worse than AMD on Linux are the PowerVR ones (because they don't exist!)

Since installing Ubuntu and AMD's drivers, I have had several instances of graphics glitching out, mostly windows becoming invisible except for the borders and webpages in Chrome flashing rapidly or not scaling properly. However, I can't confirm whether this is because of bad drivers or something else. Perhaps I removed some packages that I shouldn't have, I did remove a lot without determining their importance. tongue.gif
Fortunately, every time something like that happens I just restart Unity and it's fixed.

Video playback seems fine, though it does get laggy sometimes, but I have no clue what the cause is. I haven't tried any games yet.

I'll be switching to Debian soon, I'll let you know if I get any graphical errors.

Damn it. I want to throw my money at AMD for an APU and a C-60 but the fear of their drivers keeps me away. Why won't they let me help them? (Financially, I can't code to save my life).

post #59 of 66
It's happened to me both on Youtube and VLC, I haven't tried any others but I assume it would be the same. I use the drivers from AMD's site. Like I said, I have no idea what's causing it, I wouldn't be surprised if I screwed something up on accident. If it still happens in Debian I will look into it, though.

Why didn't you use the ones provided by Jockey? Or did you not know about Jockey? Because not knowing about jockey I did Nvidia's drivers manually my first time in buntu and it worked...but then came a xorg or kernel update and everything went aaskull.gif
