Ubuntu – Gnome Ubuntu 14.04 aticonfig: No supported adapters detected ati radeon 6770m


pavilion dv6
It worked previously but I uninstalled the fglrx and tried to reinstall it.
I tried installing it via additional drivers as well as the Ubuntu AMD Catalyst install tool as well as downloading it from the AMD homepage and building a deb as well as just running the script.

I searched the web for a solution for 3 hours now.

  • I followed the exact steps mentioned in this blog post: Install AMD hybrid (dual graphics) in Ubuntu and it worked for me just fine:

    Open the terminal and run the following command:

    sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-core fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-dev fglrx-pxpress

    Now you should run the following command:

    sudo amdconfig –initial –adapter=all

    ...but this will give you an error: no supported adapters detected.

    Don’t worry and reboot the system, and you will be introduced with a black screen, but there is no need to panic.

    Now press the keyboard combination Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then you will get a text-only console which shows you a login prompt. Login using your user name and password and then retype the command:

    sudo amdconfig –initial –adapter=all

    If you’re lucky enough, the command will get executed successfully. Reboot and you will be able to use your computer.

    To make sure that the AMD graphics card is the one in use run:

    sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

    It should print: GL_VENDOR: ATI Technologies Inc.
