AMD Catalyst Legacy

PPA description

If there will be no more driver updates made by AMD, than this repository will not support Ubuntu 13.10 and beyond. Use open source drivers instead (installed by default). If for some reason you still need Legacy Catalyst for Ubuntu 13.10, please consider this:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2181190&p=12823425#post12823425

This repository provides AMD Catalyst Lagacy 13.1 (fglrx 8.97.100.7) drivers for Radeon HD 2xxx - 4xxx for Ubuntu:
12.04 Precise Pangolin
12.10 Quantal Quetzal
13.04 Raring Ringtail

If you are using Ubuntu 12.04.2 make sure you got linux-headers-generic-lts-quantal package installed.

Ubuntu 12.04.3 is not supported.

If you are using Ubuntu 13.04 the driver might not work very well with Unity. If that the case please consider resetting Unity configuration to default or use other DE.

The driver might not work very well with KDE. Adding lines:
"export KWIN_DIRECT_GL=1"
"export KWIN_COMPOSE=O2"
in /etc/profile file might help.

To use Catalyst Legacy 13.1 you need to do following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:makson96/fglrx
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install fglrx-legacy

And restart your computer.

This repository is downgradeing X-Server to 1.12.4 (which is maximum version supported by the drivers).

Quantal:
Driver is patched:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/993427
(comment 14), so it could work on Linux kernel 3.5.

Raring:
Driver is patched:
http://ubuntuone.com/7IYHGmdpcH6SbX3l0GaXwa
, so it could work on Linux kernel 3.8. Patch is taken from Arch:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/catalyst-total-hd234k/
but I needed to add some Ubuntu specyfic changes.

To remove the repository and its packages from the system do following command:
sudo ppa-purge ppa:makson96/fglrx

P.S. It was pointed to me, that Radeon HD4670 AGP card is EXCLUDED from the Legacy Driver support.
