There is no proprietary standalone driver for this video adapter in linux. Open source driver is already installed. The only thing you can do is to upgrade graphical stack for the latest available version for Ubuntu 14.04. In your case you have it already. You can upgrade to 3.19 kernel. It has a built in radeon module, which may be better. It can be done ...

You can install it by running sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates According to install log, the kernel module does not build. And also you seem to have a wrong kernel for Kubuntu 15.04.

There are many issues with both NVIDIA and ATI/AMD proprietary drivers for kernel versions 3.19 and 4.0. There are known fixes for NVIDIA drivers, but fixing these issues only allows you to compile the drivers and still introduces issues with GDM and Gnome.

Thanks to the community, I found - and am writing down - the steps to remove fglrx AMD/ATI drivers when you can't get to the login screen (or a terminal/console/command prompt/etc.) Switch on your computer. Wait until the BIOS has finished loading, or has almost finished. (During this time you will probably see a logo of your computer manufacturer.) ...

You can remove a package by: sudo apt-get remove <packagename> So in your case it will be: sudo apt-get remove libcheese* But I will suggest not to do this unless you have a strong reason to. Running sudo apt-get autoremove will be a safe bet.

You can edit your post to fix your mistake and, by the way, it's fglrx-amdcccle. Now that that's done, yes, it will work fine. fglrx-amdcccle and fglrx-amdcccle-updates are the same package, but the updates one will have more frequent updates. Also, fglrx-amdcccle is only the Catalyst Control Center, not the actual AMD driver. If you want that, you need to ...
