how do i install amd catalyst proprietary driver .zip

I'm sick and tired of searching the internet for an understandable answer to my question; so i opened a new topic.

Here's the problem:

I have an hp pavillion with amd a4 apu acc. processor with radeon graphics. After installing lmde with Cin. I hopped over to and downloaded the "AMD Catalyst 14.4 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver" (ie. Fglrx driver) went into the properties of the .zip.part file that showed up in downloads and made the file executable. Now what?

I used to know what to do next but have forgotten :) Please do me the honor of refreshing my memory!

Hi !

You can install latest amd driver from amd website but you will have lots of bugs. (i have try it)

LMD is 100% compatible debian, the solution is here ... 2Wheezy.22

It is not the latest amd drivers, but they are very good for my games, no bugs !!

Good luck :)
