Help Wanted / Install help needed for ATI Driver $20
« on: June 16, 2007, 06:01:42 pm »
I will paypal you $20 if you can walk me through this:

I've got very similar problems and haven't been able to get past them. 

Installation of LME 1.1B2 on Kubuntu Fiesty 7.04, Dell E510 Machine with an ATI x850 card outputting via DVI to a 1080p panel. 

Clean installation of Kubuntu and once LME is installed, the entire UI fonts, etc. goes haywire and I can't make out any text on the screen (super tiny) and distorted.  That's it.  No clue how to get past this dilemma. 

And I was really looking forward to this... if anyone has any points, a howto move forward from here, I'd really appreciate.  Heck, I'd even paypal you $20 if you walked me through this via IM/phone. 

I got past this problem by copying both of the ISO images to my local desktop on the machine that I am installing Linux MCE on.  Still it's weird why that problem was happening in the first place, but at least there was a workaround. 

Hopefully the rest of this goes smoother.

Anyone ever see this?  Fresh installation of Kubuntu 7.04.  Burned both ISO images on separate CD's (downloaded from this torrent: 

I run the CD with the deb file in it, right-click the deb file and select to install the package.  The Install Linux MCE shortcut appears on my desktop and then after I come through a few questions about mirrors, etc. the CD keeps timing out.  I've rebooted and no luck...

Anyone have any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the response.  But the main issue is that I have not even gone through the initial installation.  My problem here is during my first installation EVER.  I will try re-downloading the CD and burning it again, maybe that will help me, but if anyone else has any clue about the problem, please do tell!

I googled and found some useful suggestions but I can't seem to get any commands to work for me from the command line... any tips would be appreciated.

Once the install left me at the command prompt I typed:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorgand got back the response: /bin/sh/: sudo: not found

I also tried another solution:
Code: [Select]
chroot /root nano etc/X11/xorg.conf. and got back the response: chroot: cannot execute nano: No such file or directory

My setup:
dell dimension e510
512MB RAM   
VGA MSI A X800 128M RX800-TD128E
Seems like my MSI card, which I believe is the same as an ATI Radeon x800 is the cause of the problem.

I even tried to pico solution which was to "type pico /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Find your video card, and change driver "nv" to "vesa"." but got the following error: /bin/sh: pico: not found

I'm guessing that I'm just not in the right path to be typing these commands, but I'm not sure where I need to type these commands from.  Any help would be appreciated!
