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: libGL.so.1: 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.
