Hello everyone!

I have recently decided to dive into the Linux scene. This being said, I'm already having problems right from the start! >_<

After the initial installation of 12.10 32bit Ubuntu, everything seemed very slow and laggy. I looked at System Settings > Details, and my GPU showed as "Unknown". Well that's not cool...

I went to the AMD website, and downloaded their 13.1 Linux driver, which to my dismay was a .run file. Being new to linux, I had no idea what to do with this file.

I found the unofficial guide here: http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...allation_Guide

I attempted to install via instructions labeled "Using Ubuntu-supplied fglrx/Catalyst" and rebooted. Now my GPU shows as "VESA: CEDAR"

This is driving me crazy, please help someone! Thanks >_<
