I am running Ubuntu 7.10 (dual boot mode) on a DELL optiplex 755 computer. I am following the instructions on:

to install the dual head graphics driver for a 256MB ATI Radeon 2400XT, Dual Monitor DVI or VGA (TV-out) full height.

Method 1 didn't work so I I am using method 2 to install the Catalyst 8.1 driver manually.

When I get to the stage to install .deb packages I run the command:

sudo dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.452.1-1*.deb fglrx-kernel-source_8.452.1-1*.deb fglrx-amdcccle_8.452.1-1*.deb

At this point I get the error:

Installing new version of config file /etc/xdg/compiz/compiz-manager ...

* Starting atieventsd                                                                                                                  /usr/sbin/atieventsd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Setting up fglrx-kernel-source (8.452.1-1) ...

The rest of the command seems to run OK.

This sounds like I am missing a standard library but I don't know what one, why it's not installed or how to install it.

Advice on how to fix this problem much appreciated.
