ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics install fails, how can I resolve the problem?

If ATI post release driver is selected, install fails.

How can I fix it? And I don't mean compiling and installing myself the ATI driver from command line, but to make the "Additional drivers" application work correctly.

Is there a bug for this in launchpad?

Package with driver version of 11.9 fglrx has been merged or dropped I believe, there is no more the post release package listed for 11.10. To install the current driver select package marked as current. Note that current installs package with 8.881, that is the 11.8 catalyst driver.

If you need the latest ATI 11.10 drivers have a look here for instructions.

That is incorrect, 11.9 breaks gnome-shell and unity, the version you need is 11.10 not 11.09. – Bruno Pereira Nov 10 '11 at 22:44
