I have packaged the latest beta version from upstream ( 13.2-beta3 ) in my PPA:
In my system, this version resolves the problem of hubrid fglrx/intel in quantal without the need to change anything in the intel driver (just use the default 2:2.20.9-0ubuntu2 version shipping in quantal).
Could anyone please test these packages in your systems in order to see if this is a proper fix and if any regressions appear?
The commands to use, are appended. Please make use you have no third party repositories messing with your X server components (e.g. xorg-edgers):
Code:sudo apt-get purge fglrx* sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrikos/xserver sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -y upgrade sudo apt-get --reinstall install xserver-xorg-video-intel sudo apt-get -y install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates sudo aticonfig --initial -f

Wow another bitter disappointment I trried "Originally Posted by belorios" suggestion to the "T", and got the TTY1 blackscreen after the first suggested reboot. I finished then last 7 steps with a little optimism - but NO JOY- ARGHHHHHHH.
Thankfully for the last 2 months/14 the radeon driver has got me to 30% functionaloity in graphics - but i sure would love to get the proprietary graphics working !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And thanks for all the help so far from
and recently ....
Sony and Intel there is supposed to be Intel HD graphics - if you choose to configure your own E-series, it has an Intel HD option, so it is present. The spec-sheet for the CPU confirms it.
So, in your case, I'd say it's mono-gpu, the Intel HD is disabled.
As for the driver-troubles, well, I guess it's down to a bit of luck, really. I have only been able to use my AMD graphics on my laptop after I decided to give (K)Ubuntu Raring a spin.
