I tried to install the latest (13.1) ATI propreitary drivers, as mentioned here.
But I'm getting the following error when trying to create .deb packages for use.
......... ......... # refresh copyright file cat debian/copyright_stub_0 > debian/copyright cat usr/share/doc/fglrx/LICENSE.TXT >> debian/copyright cat debian/copyright_stub_1 >> debian/copyright #Steps that we can't easily represent in debhelper files or .in files yet # Remove any libraries that may be caught by shell expansion find . -name libGLE* | xargs rm -f find . -name libEGL* | xargs rm -f dh_installdirs -pfglrx # Install the QT libraries dh_install -pfglrx "arch/x86_64/usr/share/ati/lib" "usr/share/ati" cp: cannot stat `debian/tmp/arch/x86_64/usr/share/ati/lib': No such file or directory dh_install: cp -a debian/tmp/arch/x86_64/usr/share/ati/lib debian/fglrx/usr/share/ati/ returned exit code 1 make: *** [binary-arch] Error 2 dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2 [Error] Generate Package - error generating package : Ubuntu/quantal
How can I fix this error?
I tried the open Radeon driver, but the laptop was overheating to above 80 degrees C.
I installed the propreitary drivers via the Software Sources window, and the system was running at moderate temperature, but then I couldn't login to Gnome 3 after the reboot, so installing the propreitary drivers properly would be really useful.
