    Unhappy 12.10 wont pick up ATi drivers for 4670

    Is there any way to install the ATi drivers for the 4670 on the latest release ? The LTS picks it up and installs them for me right off bat.. (no matter what *buntu on 12.10).

    AMD dropped support for that card in newer versions of fglrx/Catalyst. Your options:
    1) Use the open-source driver
    2) Use buntu 12.04/LTS
    3) Downgrade your Xserver so the older fglrx/Catalyst legacy driver will work on 12.10

    yeah this is an issue I face with my HD 4200 onboard card.
    The open drivers do fine enough though, just no HDMI audio support.
    Hopefully future open drivers will fix this.

    How would I do 1? Is there a way to simply 'sudo apt-get' it ? Or are 'we' looking at a lot of work?

    The open-source driver is installed by default. You don't need to do anything , but if you tried to install the closed-source fglrx/Catalyst driver, you might have messed it up.

    Is there anything I'd be really missing with the open source ones?

    I had the same problem. After upgrading to 12.10 (from 12.04) I found myself without launcher bar and top menubar. Reason: no compatibility with my ATI 4xxx card.

    As I had the ATI driver installed in 12.04, I just removed it with:
    Sudo apt-get autoremove fglrx --purge

    After reboot, everything worked perfectly. See:

    I also want to use 12.10 but with the fglrx driver, so how do I downgrade the xserver? If it's not recommended, I'll go back to 12.04, but I want to see if I can do this and see if it works first.
