    Angry ATI/AMD proprietary driver FGLRX graphics driver activated but not in use

    So i recently installed ubuntu 12.04LTS and since then my laptop has been overheating. Did a bit of research and they said it was that the 3D drivers were not installed. spent my entire day trying to fix this. any info you need just ask and i will give you. thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    It would be quite helpful if you would give us the hardware specifications of your machine.

    Thanks!

    Re: ATI/AMD proprietary driver FGLRX graphics driver activated but not in use

    You have Hybrid Graphics -- for which there is no simple solution and downloaded drivers from AMD generally do NOT work.

    You need to read through the linked thread to see if any of the solutions there work for you:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1930450
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
