How do I install open source drivers for my AMD graphics card?
I am using Linux Mint 13 cinnamon.
I recently installed the proprietary AMD drivers for my HD6870 card, except they didn't turn out too well (black screens/hang on bootup). I managed to remove them using the provided fglrx-uninstall script by fiddling around in the recovery console.
The system booted and X started properly, but the problem is that I am now left with what seems to be no video drivers installed - the proprietary ones must have overwritten the open source (default) ones. The screen resolution is very bad and there is no 3D support.
How should I go about getting the original open source drivers back on? Just so you know, the "additional drivers" never seems to work for my card, the system hangs with a black screen when I reboot. I would just like to have the default drivers back on.
Thanks for any help,
