Indeed, I hope you find a good answer, but BackTrack is not supported here, so we'll probably close this question. There are many places where you can get community support for BackTrack, including BackTrack forums and (as Jorge Castro suggested) Unix.SE. – Eliah Kagan Jul 16 '12 at 18:53


sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle

If that doesn't work:

sudo apt-get purge xorg-driver-fglrx fglrx*
sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle

If that doesn't work then there's definetley something wrong with the driver or possibly your hardware (not likeley).

sudo apt-get purge xorg-driver-fglrx fglrx*
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri fglrx-modaliases
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

...And (you will probrably need this in the future and it told system settings what driver I was using) install mesa-utils.

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

Delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf and try again.

Probably should backup that config file before you blow it away. – flickerfly Oct 28 '14 at 19:45
