Okay I'm a newb user of Ubuntu. Everytime I try to search something on my own I get even more confused with my results. Hopefully I can get some quality help from some of you on here.
I'm having trouble installing ATI catalyst driver on Ubuntu. I have an ATI Radeon 9600 graphics card just to let you know. When i try installing it I get this message: [ Could not open the file /home/milan/Desktop/ati-…taller-9-3-x86.x86_64.run. ] and directly under that it says: [ gedit has not been able to detect the character coding. Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file. Select a character coding from the menu and try again. ]

The reason I'm trying to install this is mainly because;
A) scrolling down some pages is a little choppy
B) watching youtube videos can get pretty laggy at times
C) just to enhance my Ubuntu experience

Please help me. Thanks in advance.
