    Hello,

    For me at least with a 6770 the flgrx-upgrade(updates) did not work but the flgrx did.

    Check your software sources .

    To do this, open the software center. Mouse up to the top bar and go to Edit, Software Sources.

    Make sure the box is checked for "Proprietary drivers for devices"

    Go to the "Other Software" tab and make sure Canonical Partners is checked.

    Then...

    Try a

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates

    Re: AMD Unsupported hardware

    I'm having the same watermark issue. I am using a Radeon HD 7850. I've tried the other suggestions (sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates), I still have the watermark in the lower right-hand corner. Any other workarounds, fixes? I've downloaded the driver from AMD, but don't know how to install it...

    Worked for me! All boxes were already properly checked. I'd had this problem in the past, like about 8 months ago, fixed it then, and it came back with the automatic updates today (8/9/13).
