Yesterday I installed Mint MATE and everything went perfectly well during the install, the only problem I have is now it's up an running.
I've got an old ATi HD3850 output to a TV through a DVI -> HDMI adapter and the OS is detecting the monitor as a 7" display with 1920x1080 resolution. So the resolution is what I want, but it extends beyond the boundaries of my viewport so I can't see the edges of the desktop
I've been working through various guides but so far I can't get a driver to work properly. The last thing I tried was working through the installation via the command line detailed here;
I got as far as trying to generate a clean xorg.conf with aticonfig --initial or amdconfig --initial and neither worked (no matching adapters found for both I think the error was).
Could someone please offer me some other (possibly more specific mint) advise please? This seems a fairly common problem from the googling I've done, but I'm never sure what the problem is best called so struggle with finding solutions.
