How to install ATI Mobility Driver (hd 3400 series)


I want to install graphic card driver - where can i find it and how can I do that.
As I am very new to Linux, it would be nice, if someone could help me.

  • Solution1: install the ATI driver from the ATI repo.

Open a terminal and type:

su -l
zypper ar ati
zypper refresh
zypper in x11-video-fglrxG02
  • Solution2: Install the latest ATI driver (one out of several ways)

Open a terminal and type:

su -l
zypper ar [noparse][/noparse]  PTA
zypper refresh -r PTA
zypper in atiupgrade

But better take a look at this post first: Upgrading ATI driver with atiupgrade - Page 6

The driver from the ATI repo is usually older but supports your graphic card (HD 3400 series). The latest driver might have fixed some bugs or added some performance.

Thank You. Second solution worked just fine!

Case closed lol!
