A bit of a tall order for someone just trying to figure out how to install the driver, eh?

Let's get you back to the default open source Radeon driver. Trying to install both could make moving on difficult.
Just to be sure we have cleared out the attempted install from the AMD website:
This may fail. Don't worry about it if it does.
sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh
Remove what was installed from the repo:
sudo apt-get purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak2
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
Reboot. You should now be on the default open source Radeon driver.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
