Ubuntu: AMD drivers install



Question:

I recently installed ubuntu 14.04.1 on laptop HP g62-b10sv.I tried to install the ati drivers from additional drivers (fglrx) but it crashes at startup screen so i reinstall ubuntu.Any idea of what drivers to install?my graphic card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Graphics (switchable).Thanks

My gpus Mobility Radeon HD 4225/4250 and Mobility Radeon HD 5430/5450/5470. this is the results of

lspci | grep VGA  


Solution:1

Install the device driver by:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati  

then reboot.


Solution:2

create a script:

#!/bin/sh  cd /usr/local/bin && wget -Nc smxi.org/sgfxi && chmod +x sgfxi && sgfxi  

with name for example video.sh, and run:

chmod +x video.sh  

go in virtual console (ctrl-alt-F2 for example) and run it:

sudo ./video.sh  

this script downloads the last version of a script form smxi.org which does all the magick - stops X server, downloads the last proprietary driver form AMD (works for Nvidia too), installs it and runs X
