ATI Drivers – How to Enable Open Source Drivers


I have a ATI Radeon 3600 and I am kind of new to Ubuntu and Linux. I have read that proprietary ATI drivers aren't good enough and that open source drivers do work very well.

Best Answer

This document explains how to install and use the open-source radeonhd drivers on Ubuntu. This shouldn't be necessary... unless you're having problems with the open-source "ati/radeon" driver that comes pre-installed with Ubuntu.pre-installed with Ubuntu.

EDIT: As JanC pointed out, you shouldn't install the RadeonHD driver if the pre-installed driver works.
