AMD/ATI Catalyst Linux Driver Download (All Version)

AMD/ATI Catalyst Linux Driver Download (All Version)  --Download the AMD Radeon Software Linux (drivers for Radeon, FirePro, APU, desktops, laptops).

Before choosing a driver to download you need to determine if you need to install, reinstall, or update the current driver. The steps of driver installation depend on your software package, please see How to install Apps on Linux for clear tutorial of installation.

AMD/ATI Catalyst Linux Driver Download (All Version)

In Linux, you don't need to install new driver if you feel your current Linux run perfectly! Some times your Linux CPU temperature is too high, you need to inspect it caused by what? Most answer caused by the driver which is not properly configure. So here are some reasons to install or reinstall a display driver:
  1. New install or upgrade of the operating system
  2. Resolve display issues or error messages that may be related to missing/corrupt files associated with the driver

Here are some reasons to update an existing display driver:
  1. Confirm compatibility and functionality with a newly installed graphics card
  2. Support a newly installed software i.e.; 3D games, design/productivity applications, and plug-ins
  3. Obtain bug fixes, new features, and performance improvements.​

NOTE:  If you previously install AMD ATI driver, please consider to uninstall the driver first then do an update for the driver. Updating the graphics driver is not required even though a newer version is available.  If there are no issues with the performance of your system, software, and graphics hardware, then updating the graphics driver is not recommended.

Now that the reasons to install/reinstall or update a graphics driver have been covered.  Let us explore the available methods for locating a compatible driver on the AMD website and understand when and why to use each method.

Where to Download AMD ATI Driver for Linux ?

All Linux version such as Linux Mint or Ubuntu has same flavor because Linux Mint derived from Ubuntu. Since Linux Mint has better looks it makes Linux Mint very popular for home and office daily use. Linux Mint offer a standard pre installed software that you need from the music multimedia to office suite, but it has standard driver which come by default.

You can install any AMD/ATI Linux Driver from here:

Please choose "Manually Select Your Driver" --you need to identify your hardware (graphic product and the type), then select the Linux version. That's very easy, here are some product from AMD ATI:
  • APU (Accelerated Processing Unit): These are processors that combine the CPU and the graphics processor (GPU) on a single chip.  APUs are commonly used in desktop PCs, mobile notebooks, and workstation systems.  The AMD A-Series APU is an example.
  • Desktop Graphics: This technology is commonly used in home desktop PCs.  The AMD Radeon™ HD series graphics cards are examples.
  • Notebook Graphics: This technology is typically used in notebooks/laptops.  The AMD Mobility Radeon™ HD series graphics cards are examples.
  • TV Tuner Products: This refers to devices that allow desktop computers and notebooks to receive live broadcast video and HDTV content.  AMD TV Wonder™ 750 series tuner cards are examples.

Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa Released See What's New Here

Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa Released See What's New Here with review. Linux Mint 17.3 is a long term support release which will be supported until 2019. It comes with updated software and brings refinements and many new features to make your desktop experience more comfortable to use.

Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa Released See What's New Here

There are some refinements which affect some functionalities below:

Software Sources

Software repositories are mirrored (i.e. duplicated on many servers) all over the world. The main goal of the Software Sources configuration tool is to make it easy to find the best available mirror for you; one that is: Reliable and fully up to date and Fast and responsive.

Update Manager

  • The Update Manager now also performs more checks than before. It warns you if the mirror you're using is not up to date. 
  • It prevents you from damaging the system if that mirror (or your local cache) is corrupted;
  • And it shows a little hint even when everything is fine if faster mirrors are available:

Driver Manager

The Driver Manager is more robust than before. It refreshes the cache before looking for drivers and reports update and installation errors if appropriate. Drivers are now sorted by status and the Driver Manager now indicates if drivers are Open Source or not.

Cinnamon 2.8

Linux Mint 17.3 features Cinnamon 2.8. Click Here too see a quick video showing some of its new features.

Better applets

  • Sound applet: The sound applet was given a fresh new layout. The track information and media controls are now part of a new overlay which sits on top of the cover art.
  • For multimedia players which support seeking (Banshee for instance), a flat progress bar is also displayed underneath. This bar shows how far you are in the song, and you can of course interact with it to go to a different position.
  • Input controls, applications and output devices were moved to the right-click context menu.
  • Output devices now show both their name and their origin, making it easier to distinguish between them when multiple audio devices are connected.

Power applet

  • The power applet received many bug fixes and the way it detects and handles multiple batteries was significantly improved.
  • Connected devices and batteries are now displayed using the data provided by their manufacturer. In the screenshot above for instance, what was generically described as a “Wireless Mouse” in Cinnamon 2.6 is now described more accurately as a “Logitech M325”.

Workspace switcher

The workspace switcher applet is now able to show a visual representation of your workspaces, with little rectangles corresponding to each window inside of them.

System tray

In addition to traditional status icons, the Cinnamon system tray now also supports indicators. If you don’t like indicators, you can turn this off in “System Settings” -> “General” -> “Enable support for indicators”. This results in forcing all applications which use indicators to fallback to using status icons.

Window list

The window list is now able to show window thumbnails.

Visual improvements

  • The traditional animation effect for minimizing windows was fixed and it is now working with multiple panels.
  • Some polish and slight visual improvements were applied to both the classic and preview Alt-Tab application switchers.
  • Box pointers (the little arrows joining applet menus to the panel) received some attention and now look much better than before when close to the edge of the screen.
  • The Alt-F2 run dialog received bug fixes and better auto-completion.

Better settings for Display settings

The display settings now show both the name of your monitors and the name of the output plug they’re connected to. These are known as “output names”.

How to Upgrade Linux Mint 17.x to 17.3 Rosa With Picture

How to Upgrade Linux Mint 17.x to Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa. This guide will show you how to upgrade Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca. Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, to Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa.

Ordinarily the best way to go from an older Mint version to a later Mint version, is to apply a clean upgrade. Which means: format the hard disk partition on which the older version resides, and install the later version cleanly on the empty partition.

The reason for the change is, that Linux Mint currently uses only LTS versions of Ubuntu for base. Within a Mint series that's always the same Ubuntu version, so the upgrade to a later Mint within the same series is technically no big deal.

That has changed: upgrading within a particular Mint series, has become a lot easier. Namely by upgrading the older version to the later one.
