Can't Enable Desktop Effects


Recommended Posts

What driver are you using for the ATI HD3300? Are you using a basic ATI or did you install the proprietary ATI driver? If not, perhaps this is the problem. Once this is installed and working, you should be able to enable the desktop effects in the usual way.

OK. I followed directions here:



When done and rebooted, xserver would not start.

The log shows: fglrx: No Matching Device Section for instance.


To get xserver to run, I had to comment out ATI references in /etc/X11/xorg.conf


#Section "Device"

# Identifier "device1"

# VendorName "ATI Technologies Inc"

# BoardName "ATI Radeon HD 2000 and later (radeon/fglrx)"

# Driver "fglrx"

# Option "DPMS"
