Is my ATI graphics card supported in Ubuntu?

I want to un-install Graphics driver but I do not know how. I downloaded AMD Catalyst™ 11.11 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver .run file from support.AMD.com and installed it manually.

Now, I can't find how to un-install it

*edit1

i enter "sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh" in terminal and in next line it asks me for password. and i can't type, everything i type don't appear in terminal

*edit2

turns out that password can be typed in but cursor is not moving as you type it and that fooled me.

  • Hey @ubi, I have linked the instructions to remove and revert to the open source driver, they should work the same, if those dont work please flag this to a moderator to re open it. Mar 2, 2012 at 18:17

IF you installed using the script, you will have the file fglrx-uninstall.sh for uninstalling the ATI drivers.

To do that, run "sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh" in a terminal.

When done, run "fglrxinfo" from a terminal and it should say it's not installed.

  • once a command is given in terminal, you need to wait until it returns again with the prompt or you killed the process during which time it didn't complete. You are not able to TYPE again in the terminal while it is working. TRY IT AGAIN, this time wait a little while before doing anything else. Have some patience.
