I've tried installing these driver using ever method that I could find. The first way I tried was to just download the drivers from here:
I opened the install, selected Generate Distribution Specific Driver Package, select Build package for detected OS: Ubuntu/precise. It runs and then gives and error "Sorry, a problem occurred while installing software. Package: fglrx".
After that failed tried it again but just used the first option which says "Install Driver 13.251 on X.Org 6.9 or later 64-bit. I did that, reboot my computer. After rebooting I had the following message on start up: "The system is running in low-graphics mode". I couldn't get any of the options in the menus to work and I could only use the computer my computer using the terminal. I tried uninstalling the drivers using many guides I found but I could never get it back to the generic drivers. I thought the quickest thing to do would be to format, reinstall and just install the drivers fresh.
After reinstalling the ubuntu, I tried following the following guide:
That didn't work. Got to the "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" command and I get the following error "Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.11.0-18-generic (x86_64)
Then I removed everything and tried this guide:
This doesn't work either. I get the same error from the above one.
So I've been trying to install this driver all day and can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.
