I am very sorry to annoy you with another fglrx issue, but i am simply unable to figure out a solution..

So my problem starts as I have two graphics cards inside my laptop supposed to work hybrid.

  • Intel HD4000
  • AMD Radeon HD7970

I wanted my Radeon to run openCL and openGL. After some investigation I found out that one can switch to the discrete graphics card using switcheroo (at this point I think there is some standard driver installed for the radeon). So i followed the instructions on http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Hybrid-Grafikkarten/switcheroo, but it turned out that there is a problem. The discrete radeon doesn't seem to change any status. It just stays "DynOff":

1:DIS: :DynOff:0000:01:00.0

Now I did some more research and tried to install a propretiary driver fglrx in a second attempt. But no matter what I do I can't make that work. If I install it via apt-get and try to type fglrxinfo, it prints command not found. If I change directory, this is what I get:

display: :0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile 
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.1.3

and when I try to run catalyst control center amdcccle or sudo amdconfig --initial, I get an output saying there aren't any supported adapters...

I really appreciate any contribution... Thanks.
