    So now I have the proper resolution, but desktop effects do NOT work. They did work with fbdev driver, but not with this radeon or fglrx driver. However, if I switch desktop effects from openGL to XRender, then every desktop effect works except "blur, screenshot and startup feedback". With openGL, all of the following do NOT work: "Blur, Box Switch, Dashboard, Desktop Grid, Dialog Parent, Fade, Highlight Window, Login, Logout, Minimize Animation, Outline, Present Windows, Screenshot, Slide, Sliding popups, Startup Feedback, Taskbar Thumbnails, Translucency, Zoom"

    Slow down! If atiupgrade could not get the info, it's possible that the rpm install script didn't either. So what's the output of these commands:
    Code:
    /usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibglx query
    /usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibGL query

    Both say "amd" (without the quotes)

    (Is that good?)

    Yes. And this command please:

    Code:
    readlink /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/updates/extensions/libglx.so
    There is another, but I think the path has changed between 11.4 and 12.1 ... I'll have to figure out.

    Hmmm, but desktop effects don't work. They worked with fbdev and they work on my other computer with a much slower/crappier GPU. Any idea what's wrong and how to get desktop effects to work?

    If it's a driver issue, we're not going to fix it. If it's a configuration issue, you'll have to remember what you did. In the meantime, you could post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

    I have to get some sleep. Maybe @oldcpu will have an idea when he sees these files.
    You can also run glxgears from a terminal and watch for errors.
