To begin with - I've searched other questions with no luck.

So: I've got a 12.10 and trying to set ATI drivers using this tutorial.

After installing and rebooting I've got a blank desktop and used this:

sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx*

to get back, but nothing happened! I'm stuck with this empty desktop.

What can I do to get back to open source drivers?

lspci -vvnn | grep VGA tells me that I have Mobility Radeon HD 4500/5100 series card.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I'd try the AMD web site direct.

Every time they update the Kernel you have to re install the drivers. It's a pain. But running their drivers means you simply run their package and its pretty much one step process.
