I have an Acer Aspire 4820TG. It has an integrated and a dedicated graphics card, the latter is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650.
The installation of Elementary OS (Luna) went fine but I needed hardware acceleration, so I tried to install ATI drivers from the system settings. Installation went fine but it got stuck on the reboot, somewhere near "checking battery status" or "preload: ".
After some trial and error, involving mess things up with xorg.conf, I managed to get it back where it was before installing the drivers. So I decided to try again but this time no drivers showed up on the settings.
I tried to download the drivers from AMD site, installed them and got the same problem as before, the difference is that now I can't revert it back. I tried to remove all the fglrx packages I had, use the very first xorg.conf I had, but no luck.
How can I make it working again without reinstalling the os? And if it's my only option, what is the best way to install those drivers?
I reinstalled mesa and xserver-xorg-video stuff, now it works but xorg.conf is still messed up,
/etc/X11/xorg.confdoesn't exist (it wasn't recreated automagically?) and the touchpad doesn't work at all too.
glxinfo says it's using direct rendering, but I bet it's still the integrated graphics.
