The X windows version of elementary is really really low. 1. something..

Most distros are between 6 and 10. Driver software like Radeon and ADM PRO drivers depend on the Xwindow version and refuse to install if the version number is not over 6.

Can you please fix this ?

  • The X is version 7.7 in 0.4 Loki, it is only the X.org server which is 1.18.4. – lemonslice Feb 1 '17 at 10:46
  • well, that is the issue. AMD grafix drivers require a e.org server of version 6 or higher it says during the installation procedure. I put it wrong initially. Thank you for correcting. – Ruud Schmitz Feb 2 '17 at 18:04
  • Actually they are the same version as in Ubuntu and are quite up to date. I guess that it is the third-party drivers that need to be fixed. Can you provide details/links? – lemonslice Feb 6 '17 at 10:20
