Acer Aspire 5551 AMD Graphics Driver
I nearly lost the will to live.
Maybe time to wait for new drivers IC2D September 26th, I was planning on buying the Acer AS and am wondering if any proprietary drivers would be made available soon to install via the "hardware drivers" menu in "administration". Because I need this laptop for school and I am not planing on doing any major modifications on it.

Even though it works fine with the generic open source drivers, it would be nice to use this computer at its full capabilities. Has Acer Aspire 5551 AMD Graphics been instances in the past where proprietary drivers were made available via the "hardware drivers" menu in "administration" after the GFX card was released?

Cheers, coffeecat September 26th, What do you mean by "full capabilites"? Are you intending to do some serious gaming on it?
If not the open source Acer Aspire 5551 AMD Graphics will be more than enough for your needs. I even had the basic compiz effects such as transparency enabled by default. To get the other gee-whiz stuff such as the rotating cube I simply had to install the compizconfig-settings-manager package.
My experience with the proprietary fglrx driver in Ubuntu 9. Its performance was far worse than the open-source ati driver, even though the version of the ati driver that came with Karmic didn't give me compiz.
I don't know what the version of fglrx that Lucid would install is like with the HD I didn't bother to try it because Lucid's more recent ati driver was giving me everything I wanted. If you search Acer Aspire 5551 AMD Graphics forum, you'll find that's a pattern with the ati and fglrx drivers - performance and experience varies with card and version of Ubuntu. There is one thing you could try. Are you able to get your hands on an Acer AS, say a demo machine in a shop?
If you do, the ati driver will be the default and you could test it. Desktop performance is sluggish in the live session so make allowances for that.

While you're about it you can test all the other hardware such as wireless, Fn keys, trackpad and so on. Experience with Acers seems to vary model to model.
Everything works on mine but the trackpad performance is appalling. But so it is in Windows 7, so that's down to the trackpad. Owners of other Acer laptops seem to experience hardware issues, so it's worth testing if you can.
Ingotian November 22nd, Initially I found the only version of Ubuntu that would boot without a blank screen was Karmic. All attempts at downloading and installing the ati-driver installer have failed.
