Picture of (Easy) ATI Graphics in Linux Using fglrx
Okay, after you've installed Linux, if you want to get rid of the basic video drivers provided, you need to install fglrx.

fglrx is a video driver provided by AMD/ATI for the Radeon and FireGL graphics cards for Linux, and there are many other driver options, but this is probably the easiest and it works fine  most -if not all- of the time.

Step 1: Downloading

Which version of graphics card do you have? This can be answered by running the command
"lspci -v"

One of the lines in the output should look similar to this "01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS780M/RS780MN [Radeon HD 3200 Graphics]"
In this case, we would have the Radeon HD 3200 card.

But, that's not all.
Do you have 32-bit Linux or 64-bit Linux?

If you don't know, you're probably using the 32-bit Linux version.

why can't open ati-driver-installer-9-11-x86.x86_64.run,whereas my file ati-driver-installer-9-11-x86.x86_64.run locate to Desktop?

cause its failed, and then i typed :
cd Desktop/
~ Desktop$ sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-11-x86.x86_64.run
when they created fglrx directory....suddenly directory fglrx deleted...
how it could be happen...i'm confused


Probably bcse you re using a 64 bits distro of linux,and this file is for i386 (32 bits distro).Somebody else should check my conclusion,but for now its the only thing i can think of...
