Hello everyone I am here to ask for some guidance, this is my first Ubuntu main install and I am having trouble getting my video driver to work.
I'm running Ubuntu 12.10
Radeon HD 7770 is the graphics card
When I Install the drivers through 'Additional Drivers' I get a blank screen when I try to reboot the computer. There are several options in the 'Additional Drivers' window. #1 Experimental AMD binary Xorg driver and kernel module #2 AT?AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver(post-release updates)
and a third driver called (**experimental**beta) that I havent tryed. Both the first 2 drivers caused the Operating System to not boot back up.
I followed a tutorial on the subject, and it suggested to use the terminal.
followed byCode:sudo apt-get purge fglrx
then the final step was to navigate to System Settings\Software Sources. Here is where I had to stop cause I couldn't find a program in 'System Settings' called Software Sources.Code:sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
Hopefully that wasn't too redundant, and thanks for any and all advice.
