Catalyst and the Opera UI

  • Hiya.

    I'm running Arch, and I use Opera as my primary browser. I recently installed Catalyst drivers for my ATI Mobility 3200. With the new drivers, the overall performance is better - my games (like HL1) don't lag anymore, videos run better - except for Opera. The Arch wiki said that for WebGL support in Chromium I should enable #ignore-gpu-blacklist. That also fixed the UI in Chromium, which didn't refresh automatically, only on some event, and only once, so that animation got stuck halfway through. However, in Opera, this had the opposite effect. Before - a bit slower browsing experience - worked well, although webpages took some time to load, and videos didn't perform too well; After - websites better, videos better, UI - unusable. Same as Chromium had before the fix. Can we expect any support for Catalyst in the future?


  • Have you tried enabling or disabling hardware acceleration in Opera ?.
