    Default Ubuntu 10.4 | Catalyst | Missing files

    Hey guys,

    a friend needs the files "/etc/ati/inst_path_default" and "/etc/ati/inst_path_override". Could someone upload those two files please? That would be very nice.

    Those are not "missing", you should NEVER run the ati-installer on U 10.04. Because as soon as jockey tries to install fglrx you will have problems.

    Is "missing" the wrong word in this context? Sorry, my English isn't very good.

    I know that there could appear some problems but he just want to give it a try. He already asked in an Ubuntu forum and they said him he should test the method I wrote in my first post.

    Ok, here i am.

    This is the german ubuntuusers thread.

    My Dell Studio XPS 1650 has a Mobility Radeon HD4670.
    When i try to install fglrx + flgrx-amdcccle in synaptic the following error occurs:
    Code:
    E: /var/cache/apt/c/fglrx_2%3a8.723.1-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb: Unterprozess neues pre-installation-Skript gab den Fehlerwert 1 zurück
    details:

    [Warning] Uninstall : inst_path_default or inst_path_override
     does not exist in /etc/ati.  This suggests that the ATI driver
     is not installed, the ATI driver is only partially installed,
     or the current ATI driver installed is an older version than the
     one this script was designed for.  Both files listed above are
     required for determining where installed files are located.
     To force uninstallation of the driver by guessing where the
     uninstallation files are located, set the FORCE_ATI_UNINSTALL
     environment variable and re-run /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh (this is not recommended).
    Then i tried:
    sudo env FORCE_ATI_UNINSTALL= apt-get install fglrx
    Code:
