http://askubuntu.com – I'm sporting a Lenovo G570 Laptop with a dedicated ATi Radeon (6347) HD 1GB VGA card For the last 5 days I've been trying to install ATI Proprietary drivers to make full use of it: I tried almost every way there is & continuing with this method However, when installing the packages & typing sudo aticonfig --initial -f; I get the error that no supported devices detected. Using lspci | grep VGA & sudo lshw -C video to determine what VGA cards are detected, it only shows that the system detects only the integrated Intel graphics card, not the ATi HD dedicated card. Help please? (HowTos)
