Cinnamon won't start after proprietary ATI driver install

Postby Locker on Sat Apr 27, 2013 4:00 am

Hello! I was using Xubuntu (with XFCE) before and I decided to try Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" with Cinnamon.
Everything looks nice, so I started my usual proprietary AMD Catalyst™ Display Driver version 13.1 installation process for my AMD Mobility Radeon™ HD 4250:
  • sudo rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  • reboot
  • sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg-video-radeon xserver-xorg-video-ati
  • reboot
  • sudo sh ./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-legacy-linux-x86.x86_64.run --buildandinstallpkg Ubuntu/precise
  • sudo aticonfig --initial
  • reboot

After that Cinnamon just won't start :(
Code: Select all
~ $ cinnamon

(cinnamon:17056): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'cinnamon' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 129 error_code 11 request_code 154 minor_code 24)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
   variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Trace/breakpoint trap


Here is installation output:

Why is that happening? I did something wrong? In Xubuntu 12.04 it works fine.
And yes, linux-headers-generic is installed

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ahh, looks like I downloaded wrong version of Linux Mint, "Nadia" is based on Ubuntu 12.10 (which is not supported by this driver), not 12.04. That is probably the case, so I am going to install Linux Mint 13 "Maya" now

UPD: On 13 "Maya" everything works fine
