Hi, I have a huge problem with ATI Radeon 7000
The thing is, the Google Documents are running too slow in Firefox browser.
According to this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/95078/comments/19
...the problem can be solved by enabling XV overlay
. To do that my video card must run fully accelerated. ATI proprietary driver FGLRX driver won't work with this card, it's too old.
So I tryed installing DRI
. I followed the guidelines from DRI project website (see http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Building
). Everything seemed to bee alright, I was able to run driconf
I tryed running glxgears
, just to see the increase in video card perforemance but there wasn't any increase at all. I got 390fps, before instaling DRI I had the same value. Google Documents were still very very slow in Firefox.
I turned of the 3D acceleration in driconf and the perforemance in glxgears was not 380 - 390fps, but only 50fps + the picture was all messed up. So I think, that DRI worked correctly and it worked even without installing it, it was in the system all the time, without knowing it.
Any of you had the same or similar problem? I found a partial solution. Google Documents are running a little better under Swiftfox.
PS: The card is PCI, PC has two P3-800.
