first I am new to linux so I need to be given instruction like I am a 5 year old. that said here is problem.
I have installed linux mint 14 cinnanim. I then needed to update my ati driver so I found the following intructions on line.
sudo apt-get-repostiory ppa:makson96/fglrx
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install fglrx-legacy
after installion and rebooting everything appeared fine. it thought my panasonic 42" tv was a panasonic 32" tv. but i thought close enough.
but when playing videos (hd or other wise) they seamed to be choppy like low frame rate. And horixontal lines appeard in the videos. So I turned on all the hardware acceleration I could in the ati control console.
It did not help much. so I unstalled those drivers with the following commands
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:makson96/fglrx
I then rebooted and installed the ati 12.6 driver with the following commands
sh amd-driver-installer-12.6-legacy-x86.x64-64.run and rebooted.
the ati command console would not work and said the driver may not be working. also it now thought my tv was a laptop display. And it get worse....when i play a video (hd or other wise) the screen goes black and the tv acts like it is not getting any signal anymore. Aslo the sound from the video continues to play. I have to manulally turn off the power and reboot to get the computer back.
PS it only craps out on videos it works pretty good on everything else.
How do I untall these drivers and get some that will work?
