I downloaded the catalyst .run file from the Amd Website .

But when I try to install it, I could not see the installer options. It shows like a blank page.

Thank you. I have already visited that site. But still, I would like to know the cause of this issue. – ubuntu_amd-driver Nov 16 '12 at 2:57
Hi Ubuntu_amd-driver Can you let us know what you did prior to getting to the screen if you could.Just a quick summary of any commands you did. If it is stuck I would suggest you clean it up using the command sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates to get back to normal then follow the answers already provided here on askubuntu… – andybleaden Nov 16 '12 at 13:58

I really think you need to identify what card you are running and on what hardware and version of ubuntu. However for now I would strongly suggest cleaning out your installation

sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates

and then follow what I think is a really excellent guide here on this askubuntu site by XXXX

I have Dell inspiron 15r 5520 model laptop with Ubuntu version 12.10 64 bit and Graphic card is AMD raedon 7670M DDR3 1GB graphic card. I tried that instruction, but still the same issue. – ubuntu_amd-driver Nov 16 '12 at 16:55
@ubuntu_amd-driver have you installed the drivers using the built-in tool on Ubuntu? Is there some reason you are using a non-standard method? – RolandiXor Nov 16 '12 at 20:34
Yes. I installed with the built-in tool ( software sources--> additional drivers, I selected fglrx proprietary) , but then when I rebooted next time, I can't enter the desktop. So I went to recovery console and removed fglrx. Then only I was able to go to the desktop. Also, another reason is I need to have Catalyst control center. – ubuntu_amd-driver Nov 17 '12 at 3:47
