The Beginning of the Saga is here http://busnet-serveradministration.blogspot.com/2013/01/mint-13-mate-additional-drives-ati-hd.html
I followed it up with a Post here http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=122168
As requested, this is the New Topic with the information that was requested in response to the previous Post.After
really messing up the previous attempt, and not having any Idea how I got there, even after all of the documentation, I am making a 2nd attempt to recreate the results of the 1st attempt so we can find some resolution to the problem.
I have wiped the HD and done a clean install of Mint 13 Mate 64-bit. Before I did anything else this time, I allowed it to Download and install all updates first thing.
I then opened jocky, and started the first attempt to get the ATI Drivers for my HD 4670 Video card. The last time, I went right to the Drivers listed as "Post Release Updates" as I figured that they are the most up to date. This ran the install process and provided Icons in the Mint Menu and Control Center, however near the end of the driver install the system then threw an error that the driver installation failed.
This time rather than go for those drivers, I chose to go with the ATI Drivers that are NOT marked as "Post Release Updates" to see if there was any difference to the experiences that I had before.
Happy to Report that this did Install the Driver and placed the Icons in the Mint Menu and Control Center without any errors and asked me to reboot the system for full functionality as I expected it to. However after the reboot, just as the previous Post mentions, the AMD CCC admin Icons in either location do nothing. I must launch the AMD CCC admin program via Terminal with "sudo amdcccle". The non admin icons in either location work as normal.
I have been able to configure my Dual monitors as I would like, took some haggling with them, as when I first went into the AMD CCC admin program, it would not save my requested configuration. After a restart, it would revert back to Mirrored Screens. I then went into the Monitor Program provided by Mint 13, and discovered it was on Mirrored, Turned that off, and then saved. I then was able to relaunch from terminal the AMD CCC admin program and set up Orientation & Resolution for the 2 Monitors which it then seems to have saved. (Confirmed after Restart)
I have now opened the package manager and have searched for fglrx just to see what is reporting as installed, which it report as:
Could that last one cause the need to use the Monitor Application before configuring in AMD CCC admin?

After entering these commands I then downloaded Minecraft, and set it up just as in the Blog post, it runs just as it did, however the same error log is being created when Minecraft is closed, just as before.
