Install the xorg-driver-fglrx package from the Restricted repository (see Chapter 2, Adding, Removing and Updating Applications).
You now need to configure the computer to use the new driver so run this command in a terminal:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
When the dialogue appears and asks whether to do automatic detection of your video, pick Yes.
When asked to select a driver, pick fglrx.
Follow the remaining instructions as appropriate.
Restart your machine for changes to take effect.
well i installed the driver from synaptic . and when i run the sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg command. i get this error
debconf: DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process: Resource temporarily unavailable
