Ubuntu: Using ATI Flgrx drivers



Question:

after installing ubuntu 12.04 i had the problem that i had a black screen directly after rebooting. So i used the grub option "nomodeset" to get an screen. I installed the recommended flgrx drivers and disabled the nomodeset option. Still can't use my graphics card. Also the option "xforcevesa" does not solve my problem.

I would need 3D enabled because i need blender to work. I hope someone can help my to get my ATI Graphics Card running. I don't want to use windows :D

This is my hardware lspci:

Solution:1

there is no solution, the ati 5400 is not supported, amd and intel haven t wrote good driver, i have the same notebook, you have too disable the ati card with acpi_call, and use the intel 3d see : http://linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspot.com.es/2010/07/using-acpicall-module-to-switch-onoff.html

and desactivate ati driver
