Thank you so much. I had been struggling to get the catalyst drivers for natty installed both via Jockey (actually they downloaded and installed but were basically worthless) and manual download and install (a lot of errors) and had no luck, but the X-Swat ppa did the job. It took me a few hours (at least) to stumble on your post to get it working, but it is and I am so grateful.

As for upgrading the catalyst drivers to 11.6, did you uninstall the fglrx packages via Jockey or the terminal or some other way and then manually install the newest version off of ATI's website? (I ask because after the hassel of arriving here and getting the display settings working I might commit hari kari if I unnecessarily broke it again)
