HI everyone this is my first post on the levelonetech forums so bear with me.
I am not sure if this question would be best answered on the Ubuntu forms but I though I would try here first.
My main computer / gaming ring (at least until ryzen releases) is a FM2+ system with a A10-6800K clocked to 4.8Ghz 16gb of ram and a ATI hd 9650 dgpu. I am currently using the open source drivers that came with Ubuntu and i am constantly getting graphical glitches accost all three of my displays (two are connected to the igpu and one is connected to the dgpu) furthermore I it is extremely hard to change any of the display settings. As soon as I open the "display" control panel it freezes and needs to be forced closed. I first noticed this when I was using Linux Mint 18 and i thought it could have to do with the OS so i reinstalled to Ubuntu 16.10 annnnnd no difference. So my question follows. What could be causing this issue? Is there an fix? I also have attempted to install AMD proprietary drivers and have hit wall after wall. Is it worth installing these? I would like to do some gaming on Linux but i cant get the same FPS that I do in windows 7, i get that Linux in its current state is not as well optimized but is this the fault of the open source drivers?
Hope that was understandable, Cheers.
