I installed ati/radeon binary x.org drivers in ubuntu 13.10 from the software center, now it goes into low graphics mode. How do I uninstall it and fix the problem? I tried terminal in recovery mode, but gives me apt and dpkg lock errors, read only file system when trying to uninstall. Please assist me.
