I have a laptop with 2 GPUs. ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 and Intel HD Graphics. About this Computer say under Graphics: Intel® Ironlake Mobile

I tried using the proprietary driver under System Settings -> Software&Updates -> Additional Drivers: from fglrx.

After a restart the System crashed it startet in low graphic mode The XServer gave me a fatal error.

Is there a way to install the Catalyst program under Ubuntu 15.10? And how? I did not find out.


You can install the Catalyst Control Center by running:

sudo apt-get install fglrx-amdcccle

Once it's installed, run it from the terminal by typing sudo amdcccle

  • after runn ing those two commands I couldn't start The Catalyst Control Center. I tried running the command sudo aticonfig --initial but after a restart the same fatal error again. Any solutions? – M. C. Eberle Apr 2 '16 at 15:06
  • Any chance you could post the error messages? – jessenorton Apr 4 '16 at 18:58
  • I don't know where to find them. Only saw the error message when running the low-graphics mode. – M. C. Eberle Apr 6 '16 at 12:41
  • After a bit of research I found out it seems to be a known issue with the linux 4.2 kernel... I found a solution but it didn't work for me, too. – M. C. Eberle Apr 6 '16 at 12:43
