I was using the amdcccle to set the graphical settings provided by the ATI graphics card, both fglrx and fglrx-amdcccle was installed by default. Then I followed the ubuntu community i.e 


and tried to install the BinaryDriver , but after installing this binary driver I couldnot open the amdcccle window, it gives error and says proper driver was not installed for the graphics card.

Then I uninstalled this binary driver and again tried to install the fglrx and fglrx-amdccle from the ubuntu repositories. But even after installation I couldnot run

aticonfig --initial

It gives command not found -- aticonfig



It gives command not found - fglrxinfo

According to the link it should work but I am stuck because of this error and my graphics card is not working.

I am out of options and searching for ATI hd 68e1 driver and even cant get the exactly named driver. Please help me out of this.
