Ubuntu – How to install drivers for an AMD Radeon HD 6450?


I bought new computer. The Graphics card is AMD Radeon HD 6450, on Windows 7 it works fine but I try to install driver on Ubuntu, and it says that "No supported adapters detected". I downloaded the driver from here. After installing "Aditional drivers" says that driver is installed. Also my screen resolution in Ubuntu is not maximum. Can you help me install proper driver, please? Thanks in advance!

I had a similar problem, but it worked fine for the previous version of this driver: "AMD Catalystâ„¢ 11.8 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver". Here are the steps to download and install it:

  • Download the AMD Catalystâ„¢ 11.8 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver
     wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-11-8-x86.x86_64.run
    If you don't have 'wget', install it by
     sudo apt-get install wget  
  • Make it executable, if not already

     chmod +x ati-driver-installer-11-8-x86.x86_64.run 

  • Run it and follow on-screen instructions to install the driver

     sudo ./ati-driver-installer-11-8-x86.x86_64.run 

Hope this helps!
