Installing AMD ATI Display driver on Linux based systems

To get most features from  AMD ATI recent graphic hardware on Linux environments, you have to rely on its vendor specific propitiatory device drivers.

There are few versions of device drivers available for Linux environments. But many users are still unable to get it installed correctly.

One of the main reason is FLGRX driver installation doesn't make its driver enabled once after installed. On Driver installation window you see something like, 'installed but not using'. Here are the command lines to install those correctly.

  • Right click on the desktop and open a terminal
  • Make sure you're connected to the Internet
  • Type the following commands and reboot the computer:
apt clean
apt update
apt reinstall build-essential module-assistant fglrx-driver fglrx-modules-dkms libgl1-fglrx-glx glx-alternative-fglrx fglrx-control fglrx-glx
sudo aticonfig --initial -f

Here, following code is the one exactly enable and do default configurations for Xorg configuration file.
sudo aticonfig --initial -f
