Now go to ATI's link. Select your CPU, then click on the download button. Select your os then (s) search for xorg-driver-fglrx. Download it and install it on your system. If jockey is available, it'll install the latest fglrx driver for you.
Again, if you need support with your graphics cards, download the latest version of nVidia's proprietary driver from here. It's usually the latest version of the driver available for your cards.
If you still have trouble, you can always download the latest fglrx driver from ATI's site. But I highly recommend you use the jockey if available. It's faster, but in my experience ATI's version might fail after the release of new ATI cards.
If you don't have a separate graphics card, but still have the intel drivers installed, go to the configuration manager and switch over to nVidia's settings. Usually it'll let you choose the open source driver.
You are correct. What you'll want to do is actually download the.run file and run it. Once you've run it, it will install an ATI driver for you. I'd suggest you move the driver to the xorg.conf file once it's installed.
Asad, I was looking at the driver list and I saw that there are two fglrx drivers. It seemed to be a drop down menu. I selected it so it says its selected but the menu changed back to the first fglrx (open source) driver. So it did not install the fglrx driver I selected. I just want to make sure I have the right driver and that it will work. I don't know if I am just doing something wrong. Thanks.
Please connect your system to a high-speed internet connection to download the necessary driver. You need to connect your system to the internet using a cable/dsl modem, cable modem or USB modem. (You can also use wi-fi.)
