So, Kubuntu's got the ati driver, but you didn't install the driver on LM 13 due to fear.
You will need to use an older version of ATI's video driver. ATI quit supporting older versions such as 3 and 4000x a while back.
Check out the ubuntu and archlinux guides to the ati video driver, for starters. Arch Linux has the best documentation. Ubuntu documentation tends to be terse and lacking in detail, with lots of links to other articles that may or may not be helpful. More links than explanations. Whereas Arch Linux explains the how and why in a very straight-forward fashion.
I don't buy any ATI or AMD products any longer due to ATI's overall poor Linux support.
Intel works better with both Windows and Linux. I used to buy nothing but AMD, but now I would not buy any AMD product even if it was discounted by 40%. AMD needs to compensate their customers for the extra work required to get their hardware working good on Linux.
My suggestion to users of AMD hardware that complain about problems with Linux is to sell their incompatible hardware on E-bay, and use the money to buy Intel hardware, which does not have as much problem with Linux. To blame Linux for the inadequacies of AMD / ATI seems unfair.There are plenty of Windows users in the world, and bless them all, because they will buy your hardware and give you a good price for it, and you can replace it at little cost. That is the reason Windows users were created, to buy our incompatible AMD /ATI hardware.
