hi i have a nvida card but here are some way's of installing your's :
If the ATI driver is install and work's in 9:04 then it should work in 9:10
but i would recommend that you use Ubuntu's inbuilt diver-installer find it by going to:
1)System then admin
2) find hard-ware divers
3)open it up and it will tell you if it's installed or not
..... or you can go to the soft-ware center and click system
and find the ATI diver
or your way
From the the sound's of it you download a script to run this
1)move it to your desktop
2) open up the the terminal
and change to the desktop by typing :cd ~/Desktop
3) give it the right to run by typing :sudo chmod +x ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run
4) run it by typing :sudo ./ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run
tell me if it's work
r ember that sudo is root and you need to enter your password and if your way does not work try this :http://ubuntugeek.com/forum/index.php/topic,34.0.html as it may need building.
I am very confused. I tried the first method in Ubuntu 9.04 with no hardware drivers found. I then proceeded to method 2 and it installed. But now that I am installed I do not know if it works, I looked in hardware drivers again and it said none installed. I tried the command aticonfig in terminal and it said no driver found. I updated to 9.10 and everytime I try to install the driver it does everything in terminal and it starts the installer but freezes at the accept screen. It is a driver problem and I am stuck at what to do to get in running. The computer is useless as is. Is there a way to avoid the graphical interface as that is what is causing the freeze I can't even use update manager as it freezes also.
UPDATE: According to Synaptic Package Manager the driver is installed. When I go into terminal and type "aticonfig" I get a error no compatible hardware installed. My card is an ATI X300Gt which is listed as usable with the driver. I know it is a driver problem as I am getting screen garbage all over.
UPDATE 2: I think I have it working, at least it isn't crashing. I have one slight problem. After trying to install three times I have three folders on the desktop that are locked and I need to remove them. How do I unlock these files?
