I recently bought Radeon R7 260X graphics driver and have tried to install the driver on my desktop PC running 13.10. It appears that the opensource drivers available do not include this model. I went to the AMD website and downloaded their proprietary driver that they claim works with linux-x86.x86_64.

The zipped file to download is amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-_64.zip. I unzipped it and followed the installation procedure indicated at wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Saucy_Installation_Guide#Removing_Catalyst. 2Ffglrx. When I tired to create and install the .deb packages, however, I got an error saying that the deb package build had failed. Now I don't know what to do. Is there an alternative method of installation? Are there alternative drivers that will give good 2D acceleration even if not providing all the 3D features?

Any advice about getting this graphics driver working would be greatly appreciated.
