Every Ubuntu-distro I tried has graphical issues directly after install, see here for example:


Debian also have had problems, also had problems with lot of other distros. Now I am on Mint Mate, where the desktop works - but no games, games have graphical problems and are unusable:

I attach some pictures.

Any ideas how to fix? Is it Mesa-related? radeon-driver related? Any ideas?

Some additional infos:

I changed nomodeset at startup with shift, e - but it resulted 
in complete garbage - the splash-screen where I normally enter my password
was completely defect, b/w and absolutely unusable.

I furthermore created xorg.conf, edited it with nano at the right place and changed the line with 'Option "EXAPixmaps"' to "off", afther that it started nomal - but thats all, its also unusable. Screen corrupts in a way I've never seen before, parts were rotated completely, looked crazy. But that was not what I looked for :D
