When I try

gladoscc@comp001:~$ sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle

(The additional drivers doesn't work, gives me errors)

I get:

update-alternatives: using /usr/lib/pxpress/ld.so.conf to provide /etc/ld.so.conf.d/i386-linux-gnu_GL.conf (i386-linux-gnu_gl_conf) in auto mode.

[And a bunch more of this]

This is a laptop, running ATI mobility. I'm not sure of the exact name, as ubuntu will not tell me.

I have tried installing the 'post release updates' too, both via additional drivers and command line, but they give similar errors.

That looks ok, nothing wrong with any of those logs. The driver installed normally.

To make sure that you are running the driver, after the installation, run sudo aticonfig --initial -f.

If there are not errors also there reboot and you should be done.

You did not include any information about your hardware, to check if that is supported visit this site.

No supported adapters detected.. I don't see any mobility cards on the site, does that mean laptops are not supported? –  gladoscc Dec 9 '11 at 23:39
