The easiest way to install binary drivers is to use the built in Additional Drivers manager in Ubuntu.

Select the fglrx(proprietary) and click apply changes(You might need to enter your password).

AMD Drivers

After the fglrx driver is installed, reboot your system and login. To check whether the fglrx driver is working, open a terminal and type:


You should see an output similar to:

display: :0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series       
OpenGL version string: 3.3.11399 Compatibility Profile Context

You can also install the drivers by typing this into the terminal

sudo apt-get install fglrx

Once that finishes installing, make sure to generate a fresh xorg.conf BEFORE REBOOTING.

sudo amdconfig --initial

After that, reboot and check that the drivers have installed by opening the terminal and typing fglrxinfo. You should see an output similar to the above.

A detailed guide to install drivers at over at the Ubuntu website. Have a read of this if you need to be extra sure.
