Ok it looks like you're running the 64 bit version, and I think Mark was guiding you towards following the instructions on the link he posted here

http://http://www.noobslab.com/2013/04/install-ati-amd-catalyst-drivers-in.html

but it would be better to wait and take your instructions from him at this point

also when posting terminal output back here it's much easier to simply copy and paste from your terminal directly here instead of attaching a screenshot and to make it easier to understand you can code wrap it by highlighting it and clicking on the # icon at the top of the text box

Thanks. I will wait then. I am in no rush. Its just frustrating that with the video side being the final hurdle, I feel so close to a good wee system !

Yeah I know these things are frustrating but if anyone can sort this out for you Mark can, I'm sure this is fixable and you'll have more than "a good wee system" with the spec you have, any Ubuntu based distro should fly on that machine, My PC is no where near as powerful as yours and I can play video fine


Good luck

Played with this all yesterday and today. There seems to be some incompatibility between Openshot and Zorin / Mint 16 and Ubuntu.

Placing the SD in Win 8 with Camtasia pictures are smooth as silk.

Trying really hard not to pull the trigger on Win 8 !!!

Do you think you could follow the instructions for installing the 64 bit driver ?

http://www.noobslab.com/2013/04/install-ati-amd-catalyst-drivers-in.html

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install dh-modaliases libelfg0 execstack build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 ia32-libs

then

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get -f install wget -O ati-amd-v2.4-NoobsLab64.deb http://goo.gl/dylWp

then

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i ati-amd-v2.4-NoobsLab64.deb; rm ati-amd-v2.4-NoobsLab64.deb

then follow the instructions as per the link

it looks like this is where Mark was guiding you to in his last instruction but if you're unsure you can wait till he or someone more knowledgeable than me comes along

Emegra,

Thanks for reply.

Can enter 1st command no problem.

However 2nd returns this.....tony@Tony-pc:~$ sudo apt-get -f install wget -O ati-amd-v2.4-NoobsLab64.deb http://goo.gl/dylWp
E: Command line option 'O' [from -O] is not known.

Not really sure exactly why you're getting an error there,  that command was copied directly off their site so it's not a typo

unfortunately any further instructions I try to give run the risk of making things worse for you and I don't want to do that

so try to hang in there it certainly does look like this is a driver issue, but there are a lot of smarter guys than me on this site so hopefully someone will sort it out for you

I think you will find that this should be run independently:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get -f install
meant to fix any missing dependencies arising as a result of the previous command.
Next just run to download:
Code: [Select]
wget -O ati-amd-v2.4-NoobsLab64.deb http://goo.gl/dylWp
followed by this to install and clean up:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i ati-amd-v2.4-NoobsLab64.deb; rm ati-amd-v2.4-NoobsLab64.deb
Just sayin. ;)

@ SeZo

Yeah I think you're right

I just copied each command up the the next sudo statement, the second command doesn't start with sudo I see it now


SeZo to the rescue :)

So should I use the 3 lines from Sezo as opposed to the lines from Emegra ?

Thanks

Use the 3 lines one at a time as suggested by SeZo


Good luck

Hi,

Entered 3 lines above one at a time, re-booted. Alas.....just the very same !

Disappointing, as everything else is fine.

Thanks again to all for their input.

Yes it is disappointing coincidentally there's a thread ongoing at the moment started by Tramlink regarding ATI driver issues so it may be that ATI graphics are not a good choice for Linux, I personally don't have much experience with ATI graphic cards so I'm not really qualified to form an opinion on that.

I don't think this is unfixable but it's a little out of my league so there's little I can suggest now that would help other than looking through the Catalyst Control Center and looking for any tweaks you can make such as enabling/disabling hardware acceleration etc.

If this is a desktop PC and you had another spare graphics card  (preferably not ATI) it would be interesting to see how that performs, so don't give up and hopefully someone will come up with a solution


Good luck

Running those 3 commands doesn't install the driver .. it installs an application that downloads and configures the driver.

Have you followed the rest of the instructions here:
http://www.noobslab.com/2013/04/install-ati-amd-catalyst-drivers-in.html
?

If you did that, did you enable hardware video acceleration ?
