No Or Black Textures in American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Linux

Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Linux Since ETS2 and ATS have native support on Linux I wanted to try it. Installed steam, installed ETS2, started up the game, tried to play the tutorial: no textures!? Take a look at the injuries caused by truck accidents that you can claim with the best legal services. After some investigation I found out that the (X)Ubuntu I'm running is missing a package that provides texture compression to Mesa. It's called libtxc-dxtn-s2tc, and having installed that it works like a dreams! You can install it by using your favourite package manager or via terminal: sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc Accidents with commercial trucks involve a very different set of issues than normal automobile accidents. If you or a loved one are involved in an accident with a semi-truck, retaining the services of an attorney who is expert in handling semi-truck accidents becomes vital. Hope this helps you out as well!

Installing Ubuntu 12.04 with 2 graphic cards

Recently tried I installing Xubuntu 12.04 on one of my machines, but at some point of the installation it crashed. Or it appeared to have crashed. I've got 2 graphic cards in that machine, one on-board (ATI), one dedicated (NVidia), and had a hard time figuring out how to get through the install. It didn't matter if I set the dedicated or on-board graphics card as the primairy one in the bios. So after a lot of switching around, turning off the on-board graphics and so on I finally figured it out. I had to use both of the graphic cards, both connecting to my monitors. After completing the installation I plugged both monitors into my dedicated graphics card, and could configure them properly with the nvidia configuration tool.

Fixed: The selected configuration for displays could not be applied - Ubuntu 12.04

f After installing Ubuntu 12.04 and selecting the proper driver for my ATI graphics card, I couldn't get my 2 monitors to work like I wanted them to be. I got the following error: The selected configuration for displays could not be applied. After some research I found out that you should run some progams to make the screens work properly. Here are the steps: 1. Install the ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver. Do not install the post-release updates version, it didn't work at all on my pc. 2. Restart your system. 3. Open a terminal and type: sudo amdcccle, or open ATI Catalyst Control Center (Administrative). Here you can configure your screens. 4. Update your /etc/X11/xorg.conf by running sudo aticonfig --initial 5. Restart again 6. Open System Settings -> Displays, and configure your screens again. 7. It should be working like a charm now.
