    Unhappy Problem installing ati drivers

    Hello,

    [Before I get bashed] - I have searched everywhere (including these forums) and have tried what was suggested but so far nothing has worked for me.

    I want to install the ati driver to take advantage of OpenCL on my HD 6950.

    I have installed the 64-bit version (i'm using BT5r3 64 bit GNOME) , amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run, with the command

    Code:
    sudo sh amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run
    Everything went well. Rebooted, however when i try to open AMD CCC or AMD CCC (administrator ) through system>preferences, nothing happens.

    Using the command in terminal :
    Code:
    aticonfig
    I get the error :
    Code:
    aticonfig: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Here is what says in /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log
    Code:
    Uninstalling any previously installed drivers.

    [Reboot] Kernel Module : update-initramfs
    I have also tried uninstalling, and reinstalling several times using some customized commands found on other troubleshooting guides, with no luck.

    Note I am a complete noob to linux, but am slowly learning the commands, research and asking fellow members may be my only way of fixing this problem.

    Fix! see below
