It does NOT work on 9.11. Anyone claiming otherwise, provide evidence.
I did it by:
There weren't any problems (DKMS did its job), and packages have the apropriate version (8.671), so what else could possibly be wrong?Code:./ati-driver-installer-9-11-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic sudo dpkg -i *.deb
As for reporting bugs, is it really worth it? Do they even look at the reports?
I also have the xserver-no-backfill patch. Could that be the problem? I had to use it because of this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/351186

One thing that might help is to install the ubuntu-provided driver (via the "hardware drivers") and then *remove* via the same applet. It is said that this will ensure your system is clean for the new driver.
Yes, they do. Depending on the bug report, you may get surprisingly quick responces from driver developers. Or not, if the bug is not deemed as high priority.As for reporting bugs, is it really worth it? Do they even look at the reports?
Still, there is a bug report on compiz blur, so adding your hardware details is probably worth it.
Well, looks like none of you knew this, but to make blur work, you have to enable Compiz's Workarounds plugin, and check the "AIGLX Fragment Parameter Fix", otherwise it won't work.
Try it yourselves.

Yeah, didn't work for me either, but with the fragment parameter fix it does. Thanks a bunch
I had to use the alpha blur to make it work.
