I tried to install my gpu in Ubuntu 12.04 with this link

What is the correct way to install proprietary ATI Catalyst Video Drivers (fglrx) directly from AMD?

but when I type this command line:

$sudo aticonfig --initial

I got this err:

aticonfig: No supported adapters detected

what should I must to do? any suggestion about this?

I use Ubuntu 12.04 and hp pavilion dm4-1060ea note book and ati radeon hd5460

I used this command to find out the model of my gpu card:

$lspci | grep VGA

and showed me these:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Manhattan [Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series]

Thanks

Hamid

  • HD5460 should be detected and supported in Catalyst. If it is not, then this is a bug that should be reported to ATI.

I tried several times to do this for my wifes computer, with little success and eventually gave up!

Looking at the AMD site for the current driver, released 5/22, there are many packages that you should ensure are installed on your system to make this work:

gimp-help-en
gimp-help-common
XFree86-Mesa-libGL
libstdc++
libgcc
XFree86-libs
fontconfig
freetype
zlib
gcc
Xorg/Xserver 7.4 and above (up to 1.14)
Linux kernel 2.6 or above (up to 3.11)
glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D applications

Most of these should be on your system already, but you should check.

Read through the driver preliminary documentation at http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst14-4LINReleaseNotes.aspx, and perhaps consider downloading the latest version of the drivers at http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Linux+x86#amd-catalyst-packages.
