I can't configure the graphics driver for Radeon 7670m HD for 12.04. I installed latest Catalyst Control Center 12.06, it shows me that the hardware doesn't match the driver.

How can I install driver for my graphics card?

I had the same problem. Amd radeon 7670m only support ccc 3.0.0.. So just try to install this version.. Otherwise there's another way.. Download the latest driver software from amd official website.. It includes both ccc 12.06 and latest driver version 8.981.0.0. It will support ur driver. After doing all this stuff post ur feed back. –  user84939 Aug 22 '12 at 18:47

In 12.04 I used amd propietary drivers from: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

Please check your graphic card with lspci or lspci | grep VGA

like:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Caicos [Radeon HD 6450]

After download driver from amd.com, create deb packages. and install them with sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb Good information about all details for precise: http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Precise_Installation_Guide

Example from upper link: Download the latest Catalyst package.

This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.

wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.zip
unzip amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.zip
chmod +x amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.run

Create and install .deb packages.

sudo sh ./amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/precise
sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

Since latests ubuntu version I was trying with "software sources" with default packages, the default installation with graphical assistance works really well and much times better than trying to install amd drivers yourself. I recommend to try with default easy support from ubuntu to activate yours drivers.
