Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical's Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is an excellent Linux-based operating system - so excellent, in fact, that it not only earned eWEEK Labs' Analyst's Choice designation but has also become our clear favorite among Linux desktop distributions. This latest Ubuntu release, which became available in June, has won our ardor with a tight focus on desktop usability; an extremely active, helpful and organized user community; and a software installation and management framework that's unsurpassed on any OS platform."

That's very old.

Here, if you have problems with EasyUbuntu, try the instructions on this page:

I recommend Method 2, personally.

You can also run the ATI installer. It will work most of the time. Blame ATI for these problems, not Ubuntu. Sorry if I unjustly accused you of trolling, btw.

Cool, I just noticed that there's a new driver out for Linux (8.26.18) I'll try it out right now!

Have you tried Automatix?

I've been running Ubuntu on a laptop with ATI card since Warty--never had any problems.

What part of "w/o having to edit text files" don't you understand? Of course, the absolute majority of the reader on this site should have no problems with somethin as trivial as that, but I don't think an OS can qualify as Desktop compatible if you have edit text files to use advanced features of that OS.
