    Usual questions first, I guess -- are you sure that the previous driver was fully uninstalled before trying to install the newer drivers, and was uninstalled in the same way you installed it (ie if you did native install then run the uninstall script, if you built packages then uninstall the package) ? I don't think leftover bits from the previous driver install should cause a "no supported adapters found" message during install but you never know...

    Guess I should check one other thing -- was the "no supported adapters" message from the installer or from the driver at startup ? If the latter, there should have been some kind of error message thrown during installation and that's the one we need to understand.
    The fglrx 12.4 were both installed and removed from Kmenu > Applications > System > Additional Drivers (jockey, I believe).
    As for the legacy drivers, I've mostly tried the guide from this thread [1], where I included my logs (containing the "aticonfig: No supported adapters detected") and described symptoms. dmesg, Xorg.0.log and lspci from this Kubuntu 12.04 x64 are in [2].

    Given your positive feedback, I decided to try this PPA [3] on a fresh Kubuntu 12.10 x64 (spare HDD), and this time 13.1-legacy installed fine! I still have the Unsupported hardware watermark but at least fgl_glxgears works (will try UVD soon). For reference, I provide Install log [3] (error gone), dmesg [4] and Xorg.0.log [5].

    So it seems indeed this is another installation issue, sorry for the noise. If only a similar package/ppa existed for precise...

    Kano, if you have some scripts to try to troubleshoot this issue, it could also help your users
