No Hardware Acceleration with fglrx in Ubuntu

Postby andzsin » Thu Jul 07, 2011 4:19 am


Problem : no hardware acceleration if FLGRX is enabled:
- editing in Presentation is painfully slow
- Calc slows down even with pretty small files (1-200 lines, 1-20 cols)
- Xorg is eats up 98-100% of CPU (when I select something for copying in calc)

Interestingly, if fglrx is not installed/enabled, the problems go away.
(but in that case I have shaggy movie playback -> e.g. mplayer reports missing drivers )

- CPU: AMD II 945 / 4GB RAM
- M/B: Gibabyte 785

- Ubuntu 10.10, fglrx installed through synaptic
- Additional Drivers > FGLRX proprietary driver is enabled
- OpenOffice settings : Hardware Acceleration is checked

Ask in ubuntu forum.
If I know correctly, OOo/LibO not works with fglrx.
AOO 4.0 and LibO 4 on Win 8

Tools → Options → → View → disable "Use hardware acceleration": that entry (enabled only on OOo derivatives used by Linux distros) cause a lot of trouble with certain video cards.
