I’m using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
I’m trying to update my drivers to the latest version provided by AMD. I couldn’t find a way to simply update them, so I decided to uninstall them completely by doing this:
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-dev sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup sudo rm -rf /etc/ati
Then I rebooted, and ran:
The installer generated the package and I installed it. I then tried to run
but I get the error:
Unable to open /etc/ati/control, please reinstall the driver. aticonfig: No supported adapters detected
Thinking the installation messed up, I uninstalled the drivers again, rebooted, and tried to install once more. I get the same error. How can I successfully install the drivers?
Here is Solutions:
