I've downloaded the 14.4 driver for Linux on my fresh installed Ubuntu 14.04, installed the Catalyst with GUI and rebooted.
I'm using ATI 7850 2GB.
The problems were:
- the top 1/3 of the screen was tearing when moving windows, scrolling, etc. Tried all the settings possible with Tear Free and VSYNC, no solution.
- no hardware acceleration for videos in any player. works totally fine with open source radeonsi drivers + VDPAU in SMplayer, but not with fglrx.
- edited::: Docky has a weird glitch when set to 3D mode.
Any solution for these issues available/how to debug?
edit: somehow, after reinstalling the driver, the game performance is okay now. Also, when I enable tear-free desktop, the top third of it doesnt tear anymore...but all windows actions have slight lag, like moving the window start moving 100ms after I really move the window. Didn't happen with open source drivers...So either I have totally laggy desktop without tearing, or my top part of monitor is tearing like hell, but everything is fast and snappy.
