I recommend copying and pasting the commands. However, you can Ctrl + C in your browser but you cannot Ctrl + V in (do not include the leading '$') to ensure there are no typing mistakes and speed up the terminalinstall process. When you have copied something, Remember to use Ctrl '''+ Shift ''' + V or Shift + Insert to paste into the terminal (or go to the terminals menu, select edit and click paste. This method will ensure there are no typing mistakes and will greatly speed up the install process).

$ sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb
 
=== ''Additional 64-bit instructions'' ===
NOTE: If you have installed the "ia32-libs" package beforehand, you most likely you will not need to do this step.--
If you have a 64 bit install, the above dpkg command may complain that "Errors were encountered while processing: fglrx-amdcccle". This is because of a dependency of the amdccle package on 32 bit libraries. If you receive this error, issue the following command after the above dpkg command, which will force the installation of all of the 32 bit dependencies, and then the amdcccle package:
 
$ sudo apt-get -f install
 
Catalyst {{Template:Catalystversion}} on 64-bit systems requires the ''--force-overwrite'' command in the above ''dpkg'' command:
$ sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite xorg-driver-fglrx_*.deb fglrx-kernel-source_*.deb fglrx-amdcccle_*.deb fglrx-modaliases_*.deb libamdxvba1_*.deb
