Comments on: ATI/AMD fglrx 8.850 Catalyst 11.5 available for openSUSE 11.2, 11.3, 11.4, Factory Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Jens Teislev Sat, 28 May 2011 12:07:14 +0000 This is not working at all :o(
I am able to use my 3D ATI card when on Kubuntu but on openSUSE and Fedora Gnome 3. It is a no-go. I’m starting to suspect it is related to the RPM as opposed to DEB?

I am on a 64-bit ATI HD4650 system. Out of the box when I install openSUSE the RADEON driver for 3D and seems to work fine and I get a nice 3D effect when activating the desktop cube. However I need to be able to run Phoenix Viewer from Secons Life (

I have no problems installing the actual ATI Catalyst and after that to enter the administrative control panel of it. The System Information screen show that I am using ATI and that the 2D is atken care of by “fglrx”. However the line “3D” is gone and the desktop cube effect is also gone.

Also I am getting odd diagonal lines on my panels at the top and at the bottom of the screen (where I have panels). Looks kinda cool – but obviously an error..

It must – mustn’t it? – be possible to do this in a proper user friendly manner? If Kubuntu can why on earth can’t openSUSE?

Hope someone can help – before I bite the apple and return to Kubuntu…
