    I hope this will be incorporated in to the "Additional Drivers" Ubuntu utility because that has always been the only way I have ever gotten the ATI driver installed. I have tried over 20 times over the years and two more times with the latest 13.1 and have had ZERO success.

    If someone has had success in creating the Ubuntu 12.10 installer for this recent driver, I would love to get it from you. The installer always says it was successfull only to say on the next screen that there are errors.

    The error reporting is just awful, I know. The thing is, you have to have lots of things installed (gcc, make, kernel headers, ... sorry I don't know them by heart) and the installer is very vague and says all ok and then changes its mind and says that some log somewhere might explain the issue further instead of just spelling out "dear user, please install this package".

    I normally just run, look at the log, install what's needed, ... and so on until it works. If you want, post your log to pastebin and I'll be happy to help.

    Don't use the installler. Do

    sudo ./amd-driver.sh --buildpkg Ubuntu/quantal
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install

    Done.

    It doesn't support Quantal.

    auto-apt run ./<cmd>...

    I use it to solve dependency/missing problems...
