[Bug 1510157] Re: Drivers issue


Adriano, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better.

As per https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1510157 you
are using the fglrx software you installed a few days ago.

Hence, if you want to use the open source drivers, you would need to
uninstall the fglrx software.

As this is not a software bug, but a technical support issue, this
report is being closed. If you have further support issues, one may
utilize the Technical answers system as outlined in

  Drivers issue

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I can't choose any driver configuration. The only option is "manually installed driver". I don't know how this happen, but few days ago I was trying to run a game and to improve the graphic performance of my pc maybe I installed something wrong. Well now I can't go back and choose to use open source drivers.
  thank you.
