Linux Mint 5 XFCE screensaver freezes

Postby jollygrunt on Mon Dec 22, 2008 5:40 pm

Whenever I use a 3D screensaver, such as the flying toasters, it freezes from waking.

I used envy to install the ATI drivers on my Dell e1505 which uses an ATI x1400 Mobility Radeon. Screen resolution is 1680x1050.

When I had Xubunti 8.10, the 3D screensaver worked fine with the same machine

Also, I'm not use compiz as it causes flickering during video playback.
