I have a AMD/ATI Radeon 7800 series VGA card.
I looked up ow to install the drivers under Ubuntu but could not work out how to do it.
I want to install the proprietary Fglrx driver.
The guide I followed was this one.
I used the: 2. Installation via the Ubuntu repositories
It said to get the
I downloaded it (I wasn't even sure if was the correct one, I got
2:9.000-0ubuntu3 which stated it was the stable release.)
When I clicked on that it took me to this page: FGLRX driver download Ubutu
On this page it gave me 3 more download options. I choose the first one:
Download files from current release (
fglrx-installer_9.000.orig.tar.gz (106.7 MiB) fglrx-installer_9.000-0ubuntu3.debian.tar.gz (42.2 KiB) fglrx-installer_9.000-0ubuntu3.dsc (1.5 KiB)
I assume the first one was the correct one.
Now how do I install it?
The guide says to use the Hardware drivers Manager, but I can not find it.
So basically, I'm asking if I have the correct files? Secondly where is the Hardware drivers manager, and once I find that how do I install the driver for the card?
Unless someone has another way of doing it that is easier?
