Features

Graphical Configuration Tool

Some Thinkpad laptops ship with ATI video cards. Previously in Ubuntu 7.04, Open Source video drivers could be graphically configured with a minimal utility that allowed to to choose a single resolution. However, users could be compelled to use the non-free ATI video driver (Fglrx) because ATI shipped a more featureful utility, Catalyst Control Center. Gusty Gibbon now ships a more fully-featured utility, making the Open Source video drivers a more attractive choice.

Compiz Fusion

Compiz Fusion is now enabled by default for supported video cards. Compiz effects were previously exclusive to Nvidia video cards, leaving T43 users out in the cold. Compiz Fusion features are now available to T43 users with ATI video cards (at least).

Installation

No installation issues found.
