    Slow window dragging


    So I started this in the hardware section but got no answer and I have since made some progress myself.

    I downloaded the drivers for my ATI 3450 HD Radeon card and used the utility
    Code:
    aticonfig
    to setup my dual displays and it worked BUT things like dragging windows and scrolling down lists in the file browser are extremely slow. Following is the latest iteration of my xorg.conf file.

    Any thoughts???

    Code:
    # Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I know this post is REALLY old (in internet terms), but have you updated your ATI drivers since the post? This seems to be a driver issue, and not something that a simple xorg.conf change can fix.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
