Ubuntu 7.04 Fresh - ATI Card Issue

Hi Folks,

My kernel :
sts@opotumon:~$ uname -rnms
Linux opotumon 2.6.20-15-generic i686

My VGA Card
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV370 [Sapphire X550 Silent]
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV370 secondary [Sapphire X550 Silent]

I did not do anything as "geek" doing with their computer; just fresh install ubuntu 7.04 with CD from shipit, did not touch "xorg.conf" or whatever the bloody command line to tweak the display adaptor.

Module should be load in xorg.conf is GENUIINE from fresh install
Section "Module"
Load "i2c"
Load "bitmap"
Load "ddc"
Load "dri"
Load "extmod"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx"
Load "int10"
Load "vbe"

You can see NO dbe as suggested by many net sites.

The device section is GENUINE from the fresh install
Section "Device"
Identifier "ATI Technologies Inc RV370 [Sapphire X550 Silent]"
Driver "ati"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

No below UGLY WORD as suggested by many of net sites to add on the device option: which really make newbie like me got many head-ache

Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps"
Option "AGPMode" "4"
Option "AGPFastWrite" "true"
Option "DisableGLXRootClipping" "true"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
Option "AllowGLCWithComposite" "true"
Option "EnablePageFlip" "true"

Server lay-out is also GENUINE from the fresh install
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen"
InputDevice "Generic Keyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"

Without any additional OPTION

Dri section
Section "DRI"
Mode 0666

No identify composite and other bullshit confusing the newbie like me.

What I did to have compiz fusion work in my desktop pc is modifying the repository. open terminal and type
$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

add this in the repository list opened on text editor

##==compiz fusion=========================
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb feisty eyecandy
eb-src http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb feisty eyecandy

save and closed/exit; and copy paste below in the terminal

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 81836EBF

and this

gpg --export --armor 81836EBF | sudo apt-key add -

If you were see wordOK on your terminal everything is fine.
then on the terminal type the following
$sudo apttitude remove compiz-core desktop-effects


$sudo aptitude update
$sudo aptitude upgrade

FINAL TOUCH type in the terminal.

$sudo aptitude install compiz compiz-gnome compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-fusion-plugins-unofficial libcompizconfig-backend-gconf


Once you back to your GUI desktop touch Ctrl+F2 keys and type on the pop-up appeared compis fusion --replace followed by hit the enter key then press Ctrl+alt right click your desktop anywhere hold and play your mouse your will see this :

and this



Dont feel sorry;if you dont have Wulan Guritno picts, the sexiest women in the world, you can download from the net and enjoy with your compiz fusion in action
