[Gloria - KDE 4.2.4] Where is the setup for the video card?

Postby rec9140 on Fri Jul 24, 2009 9:55 am

OK... I am really trying to be patient with this KDE 4 stuff... but where is the &%&*^*&^(*&^(*^& tab for the hardware on the video card to setup the driver?? ? ? ? ? ? :evil: :evil:

I need to be able to test the radeon driver since ATI decided to borq us with cards that are not "new enough" for them.... theres a reason why I prefer NVidia! Unfortunately I am stuck with several systems that didn't offer NVidia as a chose.... nor am going to wasted limited resources to replace 20 cards! 1 I cant since its in a laptop.

I am not getting any positive vibes on KDE 4, stil....

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Have you tried using the SEARCH feature for this forum?

Have you even tried looking in the Menu? Hardware Drivers?

Hardware drivers and Envy NG are USELESS as ATI as REMOVED support for X1400 (M54) in their drivers past 9.3 and neither will present the 9.3 drivers that have this support.

There is no tab for hardware in the system settings to change the driver... so where is it now?

Shouldn't you be ranting at ATI's website? After all it is their hardware, and their lack of drivers.
Why try to blame it on kde 4 ?

The problem is KDE 4 and the removal of tabs for setting up hardware.

I want to use the FOSS radeon driver. KDE 3 Display Settings, Hardware, change the driver. KDE 4 gone.
