The ati driver is working fine, thanks. Thankyou stanrc, that worked. Plus rep for everyone! This is easy when you know how.

Ok, now I have got everything working i am wanting to install Beryl. On the instructions it says:
Step 1 : Edit your sources.list file adding

deb http://ubuntu.beryl-project.org feisty main

Now I the closest file i found using search was this:

sources.list.save - which is read only... where is the file i add this line too? I try and open the other ones and it comes up with a console.

There still seems to be a problem with the codecs, I have installed all of the GStreamer codecs but the image is still appearing like this (even on VLC):

Do you have the win32 codecs installed and libdvdread and libdvdcss installed? If not then that should fix it.

On the Ubuntu forums it tells me to do this to install the win32 codecs:

1) $gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and then add this to the end:

## Medibuntu - Ubuntu 7.04 "feisty fawn"
## Please report any bug on https://launchpad.net/products/medibuntu/+bugs
deb http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ feisty free non-free
deb-src http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ feisty free non-free

but the file is read only and won't save... thus stopping me from taking the next steps

At first it all seems overly complicated but once you've got the nack of how it all works it's pretty straight-forward

I am currently working out how to get Desktop effects to work with the close-source ati driver, the open one which supports it doesn't work on my card lol. I keep getting this error message:

"The composite extension is not available."

Yes.. I kept having problems as it couldn't find the file lol. I solved that in the end although i forgot how lol.

About the Desktop effects thing... I found out I have to use something called XGL to make it work, (as the close-source can't work with the composite extension apparently), what is that? I really want to get this working so if anyone has got it working on their X1900 cards let me know how
