Your Matrox Maevex product may ship with an older firmware version. Matrox “HF” drivers have a rich interface that require Microsoft. They come standard with a Matrox G which is uninspiring as a graphics card.

These are two separate required installations. I did find some deb packages for that driver but obviously couldn’t get them to install in Fedora.

What desktop environments are you using? Has anyone got a P working on Xenial? Ask Ubuntu works best with JavaScript enabled. If you find a solution to your problem by other means, please take your time to write down the steps you used to solve your problem in the original post. Support Forum

Just can’t get the Matrox video card working under Linux linuc the old or new machines. You may try installing xserver-xorg-video-mga-lts-xenial as suggested in this Italian forum: Once you have the xorg package installed reboot and your system should use the mga driver by default, if not check logs and try editing xorg.


Firmware Package Version 2. Normally these days you shouldn’t need to mess with an xorg.

This is not the place for low effort joke answers. I’m using Cinnamon on Mint CelticWarrior Thanks but no joy I’m afraid. Matrox does not support the mix and match of Maevex units of the same series with different firmware versions. I was probably lonux it wrong. If anyone thinks they can do better and wants the edited versions of the script, makefile and code let me know and I’ll pass it on.

Want to add to the discussion? Maybe try something basic like lxde or openbox and see if CPU usage goes down. I’ll have to try Fedora again. I hope that helps. It probably isn’t a distro specific issue, but try the lxde spins of either mint or fedora, that should at least linxu CPU usage 6p90 basic GUI stuff because lxde doesn’t use hardware acceleration by default.

I am getting a bunch of surplus computers that all have these cards, which are quite well spec’d, that I would like to run Linux on. It should be plug and play on any modern system.

Ubuntu is only giving me one monitor at a ’70s resolution of x Matrox drivers for Linux? You can potentially help others having the same problem!
