To install:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update</pre>
Now you can update your packages using Synaptic or Update Manager.
= Proprietary Drivers a.k.a Catalyst/fglrx =
This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
$ cd ~/; mkdir catalyst; cd catalyst/
$ wget{{Catalystversion}} $ chmod +x ati-driver-installer-10-6{{Catalystversion}}</pre>

This can happen if your card's PCI ID wasn't officially certified to work with a particular version of Catalyst. It does not necessarily mean that your card is unsupported, but it does mean that you shouldn't file bugs with that particular card/driver combination. If you installed the driver by downloading it from AMD/ATI, installing a newer version of Catalyst will probably help. If you installed the proprietary driver included with Ubuntu or you do not want to upgrade to a newer version, it may be possible to work around the issue by using a control file from a different version of Catalyst. I use Catalyst 10-6 in this example because it is the latest at the time this was written. If you use a later version, replace 10-6 with the new version.
$ cd ~/; mkdir catalyst; cd catalyst/
$ wget{{Catalystversion}} $ chmod +x ati-driver-installer-10-6{{Catalystversion}} $ sh ati-driver-installer-10-6{{Catalystversion}} --extract driver
$ sudo mv /etc/ati/control ~/control.bak
$ sudo cp driver/common/etc/ati/control /etc/ati
