    ATI Drivers in Additional Drivers

    Hey I tried an upgrade and it seems there isn't any more additional drivers module? I am unable to install ATI graphics card, does anyone know when this will be added back in or will the new drivers be available elsewhere?

    If you have an HD5000 or after, you can:

    $ sudo apt-get install fglrx
    $ sudo aticonfig --initial

    If you have an earlier card the drivers may work, but may not; YMMV as HD2000-4000 are not officially supported by the Catalyst 12.9 drivers on which our fglrx 9.00 are based. Reports on Launchpad and elsewhere suggest they will not; at least one person has posted in the fglrx thread to say they do (or seem to).
    1) Dell Studio 1749: i5 540 (2.5GHz), 8GB, ATi 5650, Intel 5300AGN XFCE@Manjaro-x64
    2) Lenovo X61: C2D T7200, 2GB, Intel HDA, iwlwifi, XFCE@Manjaro-x64
    3) Compaq Mini 311c: Atom N270 (OC@2.0GHz), 3GB, Nvidia ION, Broadcom G+BT XFCE@13.10x32
