    We need to know what it is we are working with:
    post the output - between code tags - of terminal commands:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C display
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga
    To see your graphics card and info.

    Raymond_Beltran; Hey !

    Sorry to have left ya high and dry. I have lost my internet connectivity and am working to find a solution.

    As soon as I can I will return to this. Perhaps others in the meantime will pick up my slack.

    Those things !

    that are beyond our control

    I'm in the same boat, same exact error. Running an R9 270, which shows up as a Pitcairn Radeon 7700/7800 series when I use the "lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga" command.

    A quick look at some bug reports seems to indicate that the package "psensors" must be installed.
    see:
    http://wpitchoune.net/psensor/doc/faq.html
    http://wpitchoune.net/blog/psensor/ubuntu-integration/

    Might be worth a shot, and I do not see how installing "psensor" could hurt.
    Other reports indicate to update BIOS.

    try'n to help

    Re: Installing AMD Catalyst 13.12

    I think you should try to install drivers following this guide here:
    <snip>


    And for r7/r9 gpus i would suggest installing latest driver which is 14.2 beta v1.3.

    @spectatorx

    I've snipped the url from your post because the blogger advocates piracy. We do not.

    I did review the instructions, which are themselves good and a standard approach.

    Suggest you copy and paste them, after editing them for what is common knowledge and what is the blogger's added content.

    Re: Installing AMD Catalyst 13.12

    Hm... weird, i think i've never spotted in there anything about piracy, but if you say so i won't argue with you.

    I will just copy-paste this article here:


    So… how to install AMD Catalyst driver? Here we go:

    1. Before we start it is needed to install updates. Install all available updates for your Ubuntu and reboot computer (if needed).

    2. After reboot open terminal and paste (ctrl+shift+v) this line:

    sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs dh-make dkms execstack dh-modaliases linux-headers-generic lib32gcc1

    hit enter and follow instructions, if any will show up.

    3. Next step is to download driver. Save file in /home folder. This is very important to keep downloaded file in this folder, it will make many things much easier. If downloaded file is .zip unpack it, if downloaded file is .run go to another step.

    4. Default file name is pretty long and complicated, make it simpler and rename it to, for example catalyst.run.

    5. Here comes first part of installation: open terminal, paste line:

    sudo sh ./catalyst.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/quantal

    In the end of line you can see phrase “Ubuntu/quantal”. Ubuntu stands for name of Linux distribution, quantal stands for version of Ubuntu. quantal is Ubuntu 12.10, precise – 12.04, oneiric – 11.10, raring – 13.04, saucy - 13.10, trusty - 14.04.

    This step creates installable .deb packages of driver and saves them in your /home directory. This process can take even few minutes.

    6. Great! Packages are created and now you have to install them. There are two ways to do so. With one command line or with manual installing packages. Both are simple.

    Command line? Paste this line into terminal:

    sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

    Manual? Go to /home folder and open .deb packages and install them, one after another.

    7. Reboot computer and check if everything runs fine.

    All this I can short into one sentence: download driver, if needed unpack, create packages for ubuntu and install them, reboot. Simple as that.

    Now your drivers are installed! It is not so difficult, isn’t it? I hope this little instruction will help to many of you.

    If you installed beta driver you may have visible on desktop watermark with message “AMD Testing use only”.

    Install steam and download some nice games Or just use Ubuntu Software Center to try some games.

    Tested on Ubuntu 12.10 amd64 and Radeon HD6850 with AMD Catalyst 13.2 Beta 3 for linux.
