Problem installing ATI drivers on Linux Mint 13. Packages will not install.
 
Hello there. I am trying to install the ATI drivers on Linux Mint 13 x64 and I get this error when I attempt to install the packages from the repositories for my distribution. I previously tried to install the drivers from the binary installer I got from the ATI website and that did not work. I am attempting to install the driver packages from the Linux Mint repositories and having no luck.

I tried a solution posted here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=103909 but no luck.

I got the drivers to install, I had to purge the existing files from the ATI installer before I could install the Mint packages.
