I have been trying to hammer out the installation of the ati proprietary drivers for Ubuntu/Precise. I have been following the tutorial at http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Precise_Installation_Guide to no avail. I follow the steps exactly as shown and after everything is all said and done the "additional drivers" utility reports no proprietary hardware installed and the system info screen show unknown for the graphics.
During the install i get no errors of any kind and the system reboots normally, just with no ATI card.
So now i want to remove the drivers and go back to the OOB drivers. I run this command
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx_* fglrx-amdcccle* fglrx-dev*
and this is the output i receive
E: Unable to locate package fglrx_12.104-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
The thing that gets me is that the package is in the /Home folder where the install was run from in terminal. what can I do to point the --purge function to the directory where the package is at?
The computer is an ACER Aspire 5534 with integrate ATi Radeon HD 3200 set.
This is the first time I have delt with and ATi graphics chipset with any linux distro and also this is my first time installing it on a laptop.
Any help will be much appreciated.
