Beautiful. Worked a treat.
For someone from another star cluster you really know your stuff...


CPU usage barely hits 35% no matter what now, and no jerkiness from youtube videos whatsoever.

Big praise from me friend.

This is so cool, thank You very much!

I have a little dilemma, with my Mint 15 KDE install and my graphics driver. More specifically my drivers software.. The AMD Catalyst Control Center. It's missing from the menues/preferences. I'm not sure if this is standard KDE, or I'm actually missing something. It does not open with the usual command 'sudo amdcccle', as is the case with other desktop managers I've tried.
My driver manager says I'm using the flgrx-updates driver, and it's clearly in use since my FPS game of choise runs as supposed, but there is no way of configuring it the way I'm used to when tweaking the graphics for gaming or setting up external monitors/displays.
Any ideas? I briefly tried to search the web for an answer, nothing useful came up so I thought I'd give You a try

Not sure whats going on there.. I have had no problems of this type with Ubuntu..

You could try in a terminal
amdcccle
and kdesudo amdcccle

not sure if it will work but worth a shot.

Edit: If the above fails you might like to reinstall Drivers/control centre
with this

In a terminal

wget www2.ati.com...
chmod +x amd-driver-installer-12-3-x86.x86_64.run
sh ./amd-driver-installer-12-3-x86.x86_64.run

and then

sudo aticonfig - initial-f

Thank you so much! Problem solved and CCC is back and working!

I was not able to run the commands without getting errors, but found that amdcccle was missing in Synaptic. Weird thing, even after installing it via the package manager it still would not work, so I took your approach and got it from ati's website after uninstalling my current driver.

This is what I ended up doing, and it did the trick
:
I downloaded a driver called 'amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run' to 'Downloads', and from there fired up a terminal as root and run the following:
chmod +x amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run
sh amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run
gksu amdcccle
..and that's it. AMD CCC is back in the menu and works as it should! Great!

Ha, ha, ha, Wino... your a card! You should be dealt with!

Not sure that would work in this case. I guess I could always try it...

Hey rigel4, thanks for that tip. Wish I could say the lappy qualified as modern equipment but it's about 5 or 6 years old.

Hope I don't run into that as I think micro-drilling might be a tad too ambitious for me to attempt. Ha, ha!

Cheers,

Blue Wolf

ArMaP, patience and a steady hand... ain't that the truth.

I now know to put off any and all tech work if I am feeling at all perturbed or tired. I just end up more frustrated and usually causing myself more work in the long run.

Are you able to 'dumb it down' enough to help seniors who think 'Computers For Dummies' is written in a foreign language?

Do you have a question?
Fire away if you do.
