Ubuntu – How to remove the FGLRX drivers after I’ve installed them by hand


I installed ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run downloaded from the ATI Website.

However I installed the generic version instead of building a distribution specific installer.

Now I have the gnome-shell graphic glitches that are associated with having the old Fglrx drivers installed.

How can I remove these drivers?
They do not show up in the additional drivers dialog, and I cannot install any other drivers till these are removed.

Best Answer

Run both this commands:

sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh 
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx_* fglrx-amdcccle* fglrx-dev*
